Hi All,

Seems like such a small thing but the 0.01 cent screw has fallen out of my CSI adaptor and permanently lost.

I could take one from my other adaptors but that would leave them lame.

Does anyone know the screw size?  I have verniered in metric. 2.8mm diameter, 4.42mm long under pan head and 5 threads are visible.  Phillips pan head.  You can see in pic that I do have 1 remaining.

Unfortunately once the clippety on thing pulls out of the adaptor body it will probable break a wire inside. Rendering the adaptor fairly pointlles.

Any help appreciated. Soon I will get my 2140's but I am sentimental and can't bear to own non functional equipment.

I am seeking help. rgds

It is a standard screw for "Cannon" DSUB type connector, other brands would likely also work since it's pretty standard, the snapp on thingy is actually a standard option for that type of connector. I do not think it's metric. I will see if I have something left in the archive, used to make the multiplexor adapter as it is only 4-5 cables and the connectors, no "electronics".

Nope, sorry, I was cheating and using a cable connector clamshell and it was a selftapping that bolted in to the clamshell, maybe in worst case you can also use a selftapping.

Sounds like a #4 screw which comes in 40 or 48 threads per inch here in the States.  It would also seem reasonable that CSI would source this part in the States.

Here is a link to 25-pin DSUB connector slide clasp/lock:

I know on my CSI-2120 that a standard 25-pin serial communications cable fits, and so do the screws. Why not find a spare/cheap serial cable/connector and for the screws you need? These are surplus throwaway items these days!

I would try a 4-40 UNC fastener.

Thanks everyone. I will start with the 4-40 and yes it would make sense that CSI used this and not metric.  I will look on eBay for stuff. thanks again.
