Just bought the one from Discountechnology and it doesn't fit, all the 3 screw (82 degree, 100 degree, and M3). The 100 degree almost fit, except the top diameter is too big!

Well I see this is a rather old thread and appears that it does NOT contain any solutions to this problem as yet. I have found these screw packs from Megabuy, the URL is

I see that MegaBuy offers screw packs for both 2.5" and 3.5" and specifically for QNAP, just mailed them for information, shall up date.

update 3 Sept: just got email back from QNAP regarding the screws (specifically for my model) are available from the QNAP Store: they are not cheap though. I suspect there would be similar for other models if you check.

At the least it is good to find them. Now to place an order for five packs of.

I just received a set of 20 m3 x 4 counter sunk screws that fit the QNAP drive caddy with 2.5 inch HDs. I got them from "Disctech" (do a search for their web site). Order the M3 x 4 Counter-sunk screws for DELL and other 2.5 inch HD trays. The package of 20 costs $2.95 and about $5 for shipping.
