So they used some oddball screw between #10 and #12?

I'd have said mine's 10-24 but maybe it's 13/64.

Yeh...I can't find a 13/64 x 24 tamper resistant screw...I can't imagine it's metric.

Still looking

Actual diameter is .192




13/64 = .203

10 = .190 so will work
12 = .216 so should work

I measured pair of original screws. They're actually sorta rounded triangular shaped with a max of about 195". I believe they're #10 thread forming screws that are driven into an unthreaded hole at assembly. #10's Fit fine. Don't think #12's would fit.

If I didn't have these I'd get some socket head #10's and fillem with epoxy. Would keep the casual thief from getting in but easy enough to remove with a drill if necessary.

Prolly do that anyway since the center pin in mine are gone and I could get new stainless screws.
