KMC missing link/ Pin sizing

I am shopping for some KMC chain links. My bike chain is the Shimano HG40 (8 speed), so looking at the Wiggle link below, should I get the HG / 7.3mm pin?

My girlfriend's bike chain is the Shimano UG51 (7 speed), so which pin size is required for this?

Many thanks

    And from your own link...
    Replacement joining link for KMC chains
    Pack of 2
    7.3mm pin for Shimano HG
    7.1mm pin for Shimano IG

    So... Do you want it read out loud to you?
