8017436 Replacement Camera Mounting Screw is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a great screw. It is just the perfect screw - just like the one that we lost. Which we then found in the sink.$

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Small and very easy to loose. I misplaced this screw for my SteadiCam Merlin and figured I could use a typical household screw I had in my toolbox.....NOT!!!!! Because of the design, you are forced to use a flush/flathead screw so the mount for your receiver plate will adapt to your Merlin. I did however find the same screw at my local hardware store for $0.29 and I bought a dozen of them. The only downfall, the screw I bought was about .75mm to long and I had to cut them down and shave off the sharp edges. They work great now!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hooray for camera mounting screws I use this screw on my steadicam merlin. I bought my merlin used, and the seller had apparently lost the original mounting screw and had replaced it with a screw from the local hardware store. I figured it'd be worth attempting to go with something closer to the original equipment, so I purchased this screw. This screw from steadicam doesn't hold the camera in place any tighter than the generic screw I had been using, but I do like that its slot is large enough to allow it to be tightened using a coin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vital Element The Stedicam Merlin (and we have the vest/arm upgrade) all comes down to this one screw. If you have it you are in business, if you don't you aren't. A team member turned in this rig missing the screw and a hunt around town at hardware suppliers was a has a shallow head that fits into the mounting plate and no one locally had a suitable screw. So while it seems pricey for a screw -- without it your expensive rig is screwed. Buy several to have spares!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well, you kinda need it... This screw is integral to the working of the Merlin. I would highly suggest you have two on hand. The one I bought originally with the steadicam wore-out after a year of moderate use. Tightening it with a screwdriver wears it out each time. Eventually you just strip it so that it can't be used any more because it won't tighten.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's okay I use this with my Merlin steadycam for my Canon XH1 and it does the job okay. I slips off after much use and is one of the reasons I had to buy another one. I put plummers tape around it and it still slips a little but not as much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incrdible!! This screw is amazing! It's so good in fact, I paid for two of them! The only downfall is they can easily be lost in the backseat of a rental car if it is around midnight and you are not careful. Be careful and take precautions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Without this screw you are LOST! If you have a Merlin steadicam, you already know how important this little piece of magic is. Shipped quick too. It did arrive in a 11x17 envelope which i still don't understand but, very happy with this purchase.
