Vinyl screws

I recently acquired a coral box d-3000 skimmer. It is missing the vinyl screws that hold the pump plate base on the unit itself. Does anyone know of where to get replacement screws, or the actual size so I can replace them???

They are likely nylon not vinyl..
Hardware stores "may" have them.. They are likely to be metric..
Ace hardware in the Hillman aisle..

Why don't you contact the seller or return it..?

Big box stores in this area have this sort of hardware, might be worth a check where you are at

If you know the size nylon screws/kits are all over Amazon for cheap..

I picked up replacement nylon screws from Mendards. They carry metric sizes.
