While re-vamping my chainset the little plastic locking pin insert on the none drive side nearly disintegrated. there is half of it left (including the metal pin) but I'm concerned as to whether or not I need the little widget or not. And if I do where can I get one from?

No it's like a thin piece of plastic (credit card thickness) in the clamping jaws of the non drive arm with a metal pin in the middle.

They aren't 100% necessary.  My original Saint cranks didn't have them.  As long as the two pinch bolts on the non-drive crank are done up tight enough and kept tight then you should have any problems.  The thing you're talking about is only an emergency backup to stop the crank arm coming off and damaging the splines should the pinch bolts come loose.

Just make sure they are tighted to the correct torque and they'll be fine.
New ones come with a wee sticker on em - so pop down your local shop and take a look.
