Pad retaining pin

Last event i had a brake caliper pin back out completely, luckily the pads didnít move. Iíve never liked the pin design, and Iím thinking after dozens of brake changes on this car the pin/caliper might be starting to wear out. For now Iíve replaced the pin with a bolt with two nuts on the otherside (so the bolt is not under tension and the caliper can be allowed to expand and contract). Has anyone else had to overcome this problem?
