Cobra 75WxSt Issue

I have an older Cobra 75WxSt radio that I swap between my TJ and my Avalanche. I noticed that the small screw that holds the plug connector together (the one where the wire goes to the unit itself) is gone. That has put a strain on the connections and I've had to resolder them.

Does anybody know where I could find a small replacement screw without having to replace this unit? I thought about trying an eyeglass repair kit. But if that didn't work, I may just get a new plug/connector unit from Cobra.

No that's the end that is fine. I did some digging and contacted cobra about it and they would not warranty it. Stupid screw shouldn't have fallen out but it would appear that if it does, the wires are at risk.

Bad design for something that is designed to be moved between vehicles...

Well the remote connector box (model AC-701) is only $20.41 on Amazon:
