xtva screws size or part number

Postby Jay » Sat Oct 04, 2008 8:37 am

I have an XTVA/bracket etc but no screws to attach the bracket to the actual XTVA unit. I imagine they are thumb screws. Does anyone have a part number or just the correct size? Thanks.

I have installed many xtva's and can not find in the install doc(68P81088C76-B) any reference to these screws.
They are not thumb screws but are round head screws that require an allen wrench to tighten them down.

I'm bringing this topic (and project) back to life. Going to install this XTVA soon, but still looking for the size/part numbers of these mounting screws. Anybody have any info, or have a pair?

Why not take the unit to Lowe's or Home Depot and find the proper thread size and length by trial and error? I do this all the time, especially where metric threads are involved.

Tom, i've been doing just that here in my shop to no avail. I've been trying to avoid what you mentioned, but it would likely work.

Jay, if it isn't too late, try 10-32 machine screws, 3/4 inch long. This is what I used, and they were the closest thing I could find. I just hope they aren't metric!
