Shifter knob

So i have a shifter knob i bought and lost the Alan screws too, i only have one left. The screws hold the knob onto the stick. Anyone come up with an idea to put this back on in anyway without all the screws?

Go to the hardware store and buy more screws.

Or, assuming the shift knob treads on, you might be able to use a jam nut.

I wouldn't JP weld it on unless you don't care about ever taking it off again and being able to use anything else. You should be able to find small scews or Allen head screws at the local hardware store. The best replacement would of course a direct screw on knob. Quadratec has some cheap replacements ($7.99).

Happened to mine. I took regular screws cut the heads off to the length I needed and cut a slot down the middle for a flat head
