Looking for info on DBX 160X Terminal Bar screws

I recently acquired a used DBX 160x. When I received the unit, I found that only 2 screws were included in the rear terminal bar.

Do any of you have information on the proper screw size so that I can find some additional screws to install? Will regular zinc screws be fine for the task?

Should I include screws in all of the terminals, or only the ones in which they are necessary to hold the metal links in place?

Thanks!

I think it's zinc-plated steel. I just verified a datasheet from a Buchannan terminal strip and that's what it said the screws are made of. And you either have 4-40 or 3. something metric screws.

Most of the dbx stuff I've used that had barrier strips, the screws were 6-32. 4-40 is a bit small.

I agree. I was looking at a the first data sheet I could lay my eyes on. I admit it was a quick response and should have thought that out more!

I could just run one of these screws down to home depot to verify, but I'm going to try to pick some up online.

Is 6-32 the consensus? Thanks!

they're pan-head screws, and 6-32 is the same size and threadpitch as the screws holding your wallplates on.

Actually most terminal strips use Binding Head Screws in 6-32. Here's a link for them-

McMaster-Carr

But any 6-32 from Home Depot will work.

That is definitely the correct head style, but I just picked up a bunch of 1/4" long 6-32 Round Heads from Radio Shack and they seem to work flawlessly. I can't imagine the head type affecting the screw for this intended function, right? Thanks for the tip!
