M42/PK adapter

Currently, I use my K100D mostly with my M42-lenses.

I encounter one problem tough:

Many of these lenses have a pin, which when not engaged means the lens will remain wide open, regardless of the setting of the aperture ring.

Meanwhile I have 2 adapters which do not engage this pin. They are cheap and work well with the lenses without the pin. However, I am unable to find an adapter which does engage the pin and also still allows for infinity-focus. Probably I am looking in the wrong direction

I hope someone can point me in the right direction.

Any feedback is highly appreciated.
