I stripped the cable set screw on my Dyad and couldn't find the screw dimensions anywhere online. I was able to source a replacement and thought I would post so that those searching can find the info.

The cable set screw is an M3 x 4 mm length.

I picked one up from a speciality fasteners store (Pacific Fasteners in Vancouver).

In a pinch, any M3 bolt should work. Having a head sticking out doesn't affect function, though the 4 mm set screw is much sleeker.

When tightening the set screw, use an unworn 1.5 mm allen key. I'm pretty sure mine stripped because my allen key was sloppy.

Amazing coincidence

So pleased and happy I came across this post. Turns out I did the exact same thing with my cable set screw, I stripped the Allen wrench end on the screw, was looking around the marketing websites and online stores for the piece, didn't know I could find it with this measurement, I guess its a standard piece of hardware. Awesome Post!!! Just what I needed.

hi D(C) and others, how did you remove the stripped cable set screw?

Oh man, this was many years ago. I wish I could remember how I got it out. I may have been able to get it with a newer, less worn hex key.
