    How I can fix a Stripped Screw?

    I just changed the battery and oiled the gasket on my Solar PRG60 Protek analog digital barometer/compass Altimeter watch.
    I accidentally stripped one of the screws when I was tightening them up while putting the back bezel back on the watch.
    For the time being, the screws are on tight and the bezel is secure, but I'm unable to tighten that 1 screw that's stripped. Does Casio still make the screws for the PRG60? The screws are rather large. I would like to buy an extra set of screws to have as a backup. The watch is in mint condition.
    Does anybody in here know where I can get an extra set of 4 screws?

    You may call Casio see if they still carry the parts.

    Just checked on PacParts for any of the PRG-60 models and none have screws available according to PacParts. I have ordered parts from Casio USA that weren't listed on PacParts before though, so your best bet is to call them.

    Whilst you are waiting to get proper replacement screws, you might consider Loctite 'thread lock', shown here in a UK listing, I'm sure if you do a quick 'google' you could get a local supplier...

    So do you think that the back plate bezel screws for the PRG60 are impossible to find? I wish that I could find a junk PRG60 on Ebay and use the screws as parts. Mine is in excellent condition except for only 1 screw being stripped on the head where the screw driver goes into to tighten and loosen it. That's what's stripped on the screw...the head of the screw.

    I'm going to try to see if Casio parts has the screws. I doubt it though.
