Need: Bontrager Stem Faceplate Bolts

The bolts on my Bontrager Select stem faceplate are wearing out. Where can I get some new ones? LBS says they don't have any extra bolts, all they get are the ones with the stems - no extras. I am having trouble finding some online.

Thanks!

You can probably find replacement bolts at your local fastener store. But if the bolts are becoming loose in the stem I would expect the problem would more likely be worn threads in the stem because the metal in the stem should be softer than the bolts. If that is the case it may be possible to tap the stem for slightly larger bolts.
