Recently did some mod work on my MMR; in the process I removed the ramps. There are 2 small wood screws at the flap/base of the ramp and one of them stripped a bit so I would like to replace it. Went through the MMR manual and just cannot find the proper measurement/part number. I am sure this is a very common screw. I thought it was 5/8" but when they arrived from Marco I noticed they are shorter than the ones I need to replace Thanks in advance!

Wow, thank you LTG! So... really stupid question here I am about to ask. The link you sent me is for 1/2" screw. When I measured the ones in my MMR they were longer than 1/2" which is why I went with 5/8". Sadly, even the 5/8" that arrived from Marco are too small. Is it possible other games use smaller screws in that spot?

To your specific question, I did not try the screws I got as they were smaller. Would home depot or Lowe's carry these?

Kicking myself for not taking a picture of the screw

http://pinrestore.com/Hardware.html Scroll down 3/4ths of the way to Ramp Screws. Get the pop bumper body ones.

Haha! Honestly, I was worried at first not having those screws in place, but with the other nuts holding the ramp in place the ramp is rock solid... not moving one bit. I do want to install those screws again though eventually.
