    Screws for Byrd Crossbill

    I've had my crossbill for a while now, and i love it. I've tried getting ahold of spyderco through their "contact us" page, but to no avail. I managed to loose one of my only 3 screws for it at lowes hoping to find replacements there, but no luck there either. The screws are horribly threaded (they don't seem to last long), and especially now that i've lost 1, i'm going to need replacements. Anyone know how I could get ahold of more?

    EDIT: This second attempt, I've gotten through. I'm not sure why the first contact failed.

    Call Spyderco customer service and use loctite when you get the new screws.

    This is the first i've heard of loctite. Thanks for the suggestion. Is this something I could probably find at walmart or should i order it with the Christmas stuff?

    Walmart should have Loctite. Auto part stores carry it as well.

    I have heard that superglue works just as well as lock tite.
    But, I have not tried it myself, and I would avoid using near plastics.
    There is a place in my area called Fasten-All, and they might have the screws, but calling customer support is the best place to start.

    The number for the Spyderco Outlet is 800-828-1925 and the extension is 4.
