Thread: FT270R - clip screw size

    Default FT270R - clip screw size

    Either my new FT270R was missing the screw to attach the clip, or it fell out as I was unboxing it. In any event, does anyone know what size/type screw I'd need to secure the clip onto the radio?

    Thanks!

    Oddly enough, the screw is not called out in the FT-270R service manual. Measuring it with a metric caliper reveals it's 2.89mm in diameter by 5.5mm thread length. It appears to be a fine pitch thread.

    Why not just bring it in the hardware store and try different machine screws in the fastener isle?

    I find that surprising because it should be in a plastic bag along with the button and the belt clip itself. Another way to find the right screw would to contact Yaesu directly. I would be surprised if they didn't have one in stock.
