Mounting Screws
« on: March 18, 2021, 04:13:11 PM »
Can anyone tell me what screws are used to attach a payphone to the mounting board on a booth?

Are the screw bosses already in the booth Harry?  I have seen just about ALL types of screws used unless there is a "V" mount in the corner. I probably have the proper screws.

The screw that holds the phone to the back board, those are 1/4-20 I believe, it's been years but I think that's the size.

Thanks Ray. I do not know, this is not my project. I sold the payphone to a guy who has a booth. Not sure of what he has. I thought the booth mounting boards were the same.
Wrong Again!
I will see it I can get more info and add it here.

Yes, screws to mount phone to backboard. 1/4 X 20 sounds good. Thanks!

Paystations use a 1/4 28 screw  . You could retap though

Thanks, as I said it's been years.. I knew it was 1/4 something, but at that hour of the morning I'm not firing on all 8 cylinders.

1/4-28's are easy to come by. They are the same size as what is used to mount the Western Electric lock to the vault door, except those are only 3/8".

In my town ( no I don't own it) I can get all sorts of hardware I even found the set screws for the instruction cards for payphones, set screws for the rotary dials on payphones back boards etc they seen to have a great selection of bulk hardware.
