Sidebag Latch Screws
« on: August 26, 2013, 10:35:59 pm »
I've done a bit of searching locally and haven't had any luck on finding a replacement.  The sidebags have a front latch that "clips" to the antler.  The front latch is connected from the inside by three screws.  One of mine is missing (the single one closest to the edge) thus the front latch won't stay secure to the antler.  I took two others out to inspect and the screws are a flat head Phillips style, very short in length.  But it appears to have a rubber or membrane coating on the threads.  I'm not sure if this is how they came, or if the previous owner got creative.  Does anyone 1) know if this is standard to these screws and 2) if so, where can I get one?  If not standard, it's still a bugger of screw to find.

Thanks in advance.

The rubber was probably an "owner repair".....as far as finding tiny screws.....maybe radio shack, I think I found some at Home Depot in the little bags.
