screw size for mounting holes

0 votes
It's tiny and needs to be carefully mounted on our robot.

What size (& type) of screws do you recommend ?

M2.5 or 2-56 will work, max depth into the camera feet is 5mm. So if your mounting plate is thin, add a washer and then you are ok with a 1/4” screw

I was just notified by a user that M2.5 may be too tight on some units. So you may want to try M2.0 first, which should already be snug and tight.
