Doing my ruddy 'ed in!!!!?!?!?

What are the thingies on the back of flatbed trucks called that are used to lock up the tailgate. You push them through the hole and then they drop into place securing the tailgate.

What the bl**dy 'ell are they called. Any help to maintain my sanity would be much appreciated!!

I was actually looking for a single piece one that I can have a snap ring with wire on one end and then thread it through a hole and lock it on the other side.......if you get what I mean!?!?
