Side brush screws from eBay too short

I assume I'm not the only person to have noticed this. Anything Roomba you buy on eBay comes with about 6 free side brushes and screws. But the screws are always about 1/8" too short. Which is fine, as long as you don't lose the original screw... what are your solutions?

iRobot has made several different modular side brush modules for the different models. They have changed the side brush design as well as the screw used to mount the side brush. What model Roomba are you using?

I have a ~2013 665 and a ~2006 563. Both take the same brush, neither will take the included screws. (ca. 2018 e5 should be here next week.)

Maybe those screws are for the 800 or 900 style side brush module. Or those brushes and screws offered with the ebay items are poorly manufactured.
