Can someone recommend a pogo pin for rpi 0?

I've seen several rpi 0 USB hub designs with short pogo pins for contact. I'm interested in trying but don't know a good part number:

The pogo pins are very short. Hopefully someone has a part number. I've only seen much longer ones and they are very hard to solder (won't stay in one place):

I've only made one device with the above long pins. Not much experience in shopping for the right ones. The long pins have large heads and they are too big for rpi 0's test points.

Any information is appreciated.

Thanks. I'll look through them. Just need really small ones so their "trunks" don't touch each other, as the two test points are close.

We were searching for something similar for the Pi 0. Couldn't find it, so we started a new product, it may be useful to you :

I have been using them for a while now to debug various audio cards and other items I am prototyping - it is great and keeps the addons clean - I find it easier to debug with these pogo clips.
