Screws for TST 507 TPMS

Last year, after reading a bunch of topics in here about various tire pressure monitoring systems, I bought a TST TPMS for our pickup and 5th wheel. It's just about a year old now, and it's works fine...

But, it's time to change the batteries and I've found a small problem. Unfortunately, I live in Minnesota, where they routinely dump, literally, TONS of salt and all manner of yuck on the roads in the winter. When means when I got the wheel sending units off the truck, the tiny, REALLY tiny, screws are badly rusted. I managed to get them out, but they're not going to survive, long term. Since I've got 8 of the sending units, I'm going to need at least a dozen of the screws - if I'm lucky and half are still usable.

I just sent an email to TST asking about the screws, 'cause they don't show any replacement screws on their site in the online shop. Does anybody here have a source for screws that size? I have no idea how one sizes screws that small, but I figure a bag of a hundred (I figure lose at least half of them) can't be more than a couple dollars...

My experience with TST is that they will send you however many screws you need, and also the rubber gaskets that go between the cover and the base.

Yup, good people to deal with - likely best to just give them a shout.

I sent an email yesterday and got a reply today. They're sending screws. I wish everyplace was as responsive as they've been!
