Lost the set screws on my Tektro canti straddle wire hanger

Geez. Transported my work-in-progress retro MTB to the LBS to get a headset installed and had not finished the brake set up yet. Somewhere along the way, the set screws vibrated themselves loose and are now roaming the countryside.

Anyway, now I need 4 of them. Any kind souls out there know what size they might be? I think most brands use the same size. And a 2.5mm allen wrench fits them.

Thanks for the reply.

A quick trip to the hardware store turns up that they are m5, actually. At least the two different Tektro models I have.
