I've lost one of the screws that holds the belt clip to the HT. Does anyone know the size and thread pitch of those screws? The instruction manual only shows that there are two of them.

I've already asked ICOM Technical Support. One of them replied he was unable to find the information.

My local ACE Hardware had some M3 x 0.5 x 4mm for $0.15 a piece. They seem to work OK. I hesitate because the remaining original screw is considerably shorter, like 1mm; just enough to clinch the case.

I'm looking for some star lock washers that will eat up some of that extra length and, maybe, make the clip more secure. ACE only had wavy washers starting at M4 diameter. The attendant suggested Locktite as his preference instead of a lock washer. We'll see if I can find the washer for clearance, if nothing else.
