    Has anyone yet figured out what all of the types of screws are that the Switch uses?

    For example, this Ebay auction supposedly sells them all -

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/For-Ninten...-Con-Full-Set-Screws-Replacement/352210262442

    (it is though missing the three screws that hold the fan in place plus all of the screws are cross-head while some should be tri-wing).

    However, I'm trying to find the exact types so that I can buy what I need instead of a complete set which also has those that I don't want.

    Any ideas please anyone?

    Screws for consoles very rarely are available outside of a set like this. And even if it is it wont be much cheaper.

    You listed the screw head size, but you also need thread count, length and diameter for a full propper match that wont strip anything

    Thanks for the suggestions so far, but I'm looking to get the screws as required (so I need the exact type) instead of a set which contains screws that I'll possibly never use. :)

    Also, as TheCyberQuake says, there's more to a screw type than the head size.

    Better to have extra for later just in case. You won't really get a better price trying to find just what you need anyway.
