Screws for the BlueROV2 Heavy Fairing Add-on

Hi everyone,

here in the robotics lab at Dartmouth College, we have a BlueROV2 with the heavy configuration. What are the screws for the heavy fairing add-on? I see that on the related product page they are M3 self-tapping screws, but I cannot find them where to get them (McMaster Carr for example has only #4 and #6 for a 316 SS).

In general, is there a bill of material for the screws, in case we need to buy some spare?

Thank you very much,

I’m not sure this will be of much use to you, but I made a McMaster list during assembly a couple months ago and like you I couldn’t find the exact wood screws, but found some that might be close enough. It won’t contain everything, just the fasteners that came in bags.

Hi @quattrinili,

Yes, the heavy fairing screws are the same as the thruster nozzle screws, metric self tapping M3 x 12 mm. They are stainless 316 with a Phillips drive countersunk head. You can find similar screws here, or if you contact us we can send you a couple.


Thank you @adam, I tried the screws from uxcell, however one of them broke – I guess they have a lower strength compared to what you provide. I will contact you then to receive some screws and get an extra fairing.
