    Don't think you can. Theres been some people who've replaced the pins with small wire ties that are left kind of loose which sounds like a better idea than the pins anyway.

    Yep, plastic cable ties do the job perfectly, just leave them a little loose. Their only purpose is to stop the gimbal and camera falling off if the rubber shock-absorbers break free of the mount.
