Help with CH-910 Install

Purchased the XL2 this month, however can't seem to find the three screws to attach it to the camera, emailed canon and was told I could purchase new ones. with shipping 20.00
all I really wanted to know was the size needed, I'am sure I can purchase either at a local electronics supply or hardware store if I knew the size of the screws.
Can anyone tell me the size
Thanks Don

The three screws are shipped ON THE PLATE. They are screwed onto the plate already. Simply unscrew them and use them to attach the mount to the body.

Frankly, I think they are the worst aspect of the XL2. Hard to get to, impossible to reach with BP945's mounted on the CH910, and you need a tiny phillips head to take the mount off. Try dropping one of the screws in the dark... no thanks. I'm looking to get a set of thumb screws to replace them. When I figure out the thread size, I'll let you know.

No Screws

Richard, Had the CH-910 with my previous XL1, came with screws, so I'm familiar with the mounting process, I just don't have the screws, need thread size so I can be sure of not stripping the mount holes on the body of the camera, Thanks for you response
