I have no doubt that the little ball point pen spring works, however, the OEM spring actually is the larger diameter spring found inside the adjacent round detent. You could probably find a suitable replacement at a well stocked hardware store or go with the ball point pen spring. Either one will likely return the pushbutton to it's latched position. I just replaced my pocket door a few days ago and had to crawl around on my hands and knees for :20 minutes before I found that damn spring!
