The pins I used are 16mm long. They're also 1/10 as expensive. I'm sure yours will work fine though. You probably won't lose as many of them as I did :-p Thumbnail sized pictures here.

Bending is the biggest problem. Unless they're straight, the pins will bind and become useless. The "keeper" as you call it will minimize that possibility. I used a 2mm IDC connector and the pins simply plug into that (it takes a firm push). No soldering required. A "keeper" was still necessary though. I built mine from three thicknesses of leftover header strip, with its machined pins removed.

I think your "keeper" is similar to mine in that it's part of the plug and aids in alignment. Marcus' keeper protects the pins when not in use.
