I lost a screw from my shimano spd shoe- Anyone have an Extra?

I have a pair of Shimano SH-M034 touring shoes. I don't use clipless as these are for my commuting. Today I realized I lost a screw holding the cleat cover on the sole. I have had a hard time tracking one down. If anyone knows where I can find one, I would appreciate it. Alternatively, if anyone has an extra screw off an old or unused pair, I would really appreciate it as well. I just need one screw. Thanks.

OK. I don't have a pair of SH-M034's in front of me, so I may be talking out of my butt, here. Still...

There is nothing all that special about most of the screws and bolts used on bicycles. You can probably get a replacement at any hardware store. Take the other bolt with you so that the helpful hardware guy can find one like it.

Not too long ago I needed a bolt with a 3 mm allen head to mount a rack. The hardware guy looked skeptical, but he found one. It cost me 15 cents.

Get a stainless steel bolt if you can, and put a little blue loc-tite on the threads before you screw it into your shoe.

Good luck.
