Screws for Saitek equipment?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Hoping that someone here can help me with a very specific problem - several years ago I purchased the Volair FlightSim chair (great product, highly recommend it.) At the time I used the included velcro strips to attach my Saitek equipment (multi panel, switch panel, etc.) to the Volair desk. 

However, the velcro has proven to be not very effective. I would like to attach these devices using screws - however the screws that came with the Saitek equipment cannot be found. I've tried a bunch of different types of screws from my toolbox, but can't seem to find one that fits. I even reached out to Saitek/Logitech support - they provided me with a diagram (which I can't seem to attach here?), however I'm still not clear on what screws I need to purchase.

If someone could help me understand which screws I need in order to screw the Saitek equipment into the Volair Flight sim chair I would be very appreciative. Thank you for your help!

Got an ACE Hardware store nearby?  Take the panel and try some of the metric screws from the individual screw bins.  

I found some longer ones that I used to secure the panel to my desktop from the bottom.

OK I found 2 PDF files one for Instrument panels and one for Radio Panel BOTH say 4 x M4 and I am pretty sure the rest of the panels require the same as they are swappable in positions.
