Truss rod cover screws.

Hi all.
Earlier this year I have bought a 2003 McCarty that I love.

Unofortunately, the screw holding down the truss rod cover is not original. I would assume it's a Gibson screw and doesn't hold the cover down properly, it rattles and move around.

I don't see these screws sold individually on John mann's website and also I don't see them included if I were to buy a replacement truss rod cover.

Can anyone tell me where I can source one?

Much thanks.
The screw definitely doesn't look right. I am familiar with the toothpick trick and I've used it many times for straplock etc., but this is a different thing here, and I don't know hw much extra grip the toothpick would provide.
