Thread: Lost castor screw. What size is replacement?

    Lost castor screw. What size is replacement?

    I am on vacation and yesterday I looked down and noticed I lost the small screw to one of my casters and had no success at finding it. Fortunatly, and amazingly, my dad found one in his garage at his cabin that fit. I'd like to purchase another so I have the right part. Anyone know the size? I was going to check a hardware store.

    I have FL forks with 4 x 1.5 FL casters on my TiLite TR.

    If the caster axle uses a button head cap screw and uses a 5/32 Allen wrench, then jschism is probably correct. TiLite's Phillips head screw has a 10-32 thread, but I believe they only use that with their own forks.

    Are we talking about for Unitine forks/caster axles?

    No. Suspension forks, but if it is a BHCS, the fastener would be the same one used with the UniTine.

    I wasn't sure, just said FL. However, I was talking about the FL unitine and the screws that holds the wheels on fork.

    Is this what you ordered? I could actually use a few, but not 100 of them!
