Sourcing for screws to attach clips on Campy Pedals

I bought these on the forum not noticing the built in ramps! Very cool!
CampagnoloTrap on Flickr

I like the way they fit on the pedal too! They will be on the Bianchi soon.

Question is, where do I find the appropriate attaching screws with the correct head?

It is always the small stuff, right?

Isn't it just a couple M5 nuts and bolts and lock washers?

You can buy them at Lowe's . They are not chrome plated like the originals , but they are hex head and have the correct look. I bought 5mm washers too. The pedals (Campagnolo pedals that I have are threaded so no nut required.

Not only are they threaded, but if they haven't been used, they are tight.
Might consider button head with allen driver. I suppose hex is better so dirt isn't collected.

Thought they might be familiar so looked in my small parts box that has an assortment of bike smalls like pinch bolts, axle cones, oil clips for hubs, etc. Found these:

Hate to break the package open but I can rob Peter to pay Paul.

Looks like you found what I was going to post. I will anyway since I already took the picture. I have a few of these in their paper packets. Just remember, each set only has 2 bolts.

I'd use some stainless flanged screws, something like these.

Campy may make some beautiful stuff, but that hardware pack isn't part of it.

I'd imagine the tab acting like a pedal flip -- but not in that location? If not -- purpose?

washers are an issue but the Original Campagnolo fastener head is ever so slightly domed.

if you want OEM you pay the Campagnolo price. Campagnolo’s are shorter, shorter than anything at a typical hardware store.

tiger1964 I thought the same. They really help the toe of the shoe slip into the cage. Without them the toe catches the edge of the pedal cage.

I'm the guy who uses the rotary tool on stock 7mm bolts to create Stronglight/TA compatible chainring bolts.

The original Campy bolts are nice with their slightly domed tops. But the do tend to rust and pit badly as the chrome finish on them is quite thin.

I would suggest getting four 5X8mm hex head bolts and cutting them down on a sanding disc or grinder. The SS won't rust or di-electric brinnel in the pedals, so it's a win. Smiles, MH

Well the domed is nice and the functionality is really a saver.
If you havent used pedals with them, you should.
In this case, it is the functionality that is near beautiful.

When looking at the whole pedal system design, there is a lot of forethought in nearly every feature including the accommodation of using other toe clips brands that do not have the ramp feature.

It's to cleanly guide the toe of your shoe into the clip, without snagging on the pedal cage.

lol, you've seen the type of stuff I'm not interested in, Campy Pedals would be the first to go unless they were decades old. They they would go into my horde which has been thinned considerably. (Long way to go until normal)
I have a house, a garage, and a patio with c&v stuff.
As a general rule I do things how I do them. I don't have the ability to think inside the box, so I tend to either recreate the wheel. or come up with solutions that most of the people here either don't understand or are dead set on doing a harder way.
Order bolts? Crap, cut some to length.

All of that being said, my take on campy is that it tends to be a gold plated hammer.
It's good, it's strong. classic lines, and the tendency to have ugly bits they call style.
Those bolts fall into that category.

Plus it provides another place to have the name Campagnolo on the bike.

Yeah, I'll buy that explanation.

Unless you're submitting the bike in a concours event, where originality is more important than function, just use whatever works.

Campagnolo toe clip bolts and washers


I made a batch of reproduction Campagnolo pedal bolts using 304 stainless steel for the bolts, I only have 2 sets left. I made the threaded portion the same length as the originals, and the dome shape of the head is the same. I sourced the correct zinc plated washers, these are not easy to find. The bolt heads have not been polished, but this is easy to do as the finish is very good. $20 per set of 4 as shown, plus shipping which is no more than $5 in the USA. Using hardware bolts and washer on Campagnolo pedals and toe clips is a sacrilege! Jim Merz
