    KS Cable Collar - Set Screw Size M4 x .5MM Long with .7 Thread Pitch?

    Anyone ever measure or find definitive proof of the KS Cable Collar's set screw size?

    The fact that the cable collar is $7 isn't so bad, but with KS not providing the set screw, you're forced to spend $7 on one.

    I'm wondering if I can go to the local Festnal or Home Depot and get a tiny set screw for a few cents.

    Might not need a set screw if there's room for a screw with a head. Maybe find a general purpose knarp that works?
    What, me worry?

    My reason for wanting to use the KS Cable Collar is that it's tapered end fits a small derailleur cable end in a Specialized SRL dropper lever.

    If I use another type of knarp, the end would move around, possible damaging the remote over time.
