Expansion card screws

I recently noticed that my storage expansion card was delivered without screws. It’s really not a big deal to me as the card holds together fine without them. Support kindly provided me with the specs as I didn’t expect them to put two tiny screws on a plane for me.

Here’s where I (or anyone looking for replacement screws) need your help though: I seem to unable to find screws of that spec at a EU retailer, at least none that are a considerable upgrade over just having none. Something’s always off, be it head shape, diameter or something else. The specs are as follows:

  • diameter: 1.2mm
  • length: 3.0mm
  • thread pitch: 0.25mm
  • head: 2.9mm T5 flathead

I don’t expect anyone to search far and wide, but I figured since there are probably a lot of people here who have some experience repairing electronics, maybe someone knows a good source for such screws. Thank you in advance!

T5 is relatively rare, you might have better luck looking for philips head?

I’d even take slot at this point tbh, but every screw I find has a head that won’t fit…
