15-015 Pivot Shoe

A quick learner from Cedar Rapids Iowa says:
Is a screw needed to retain the balance control rod shaft in the pivot shoe?

There is a small screw (upper center of the pivot shoe)in the pivot shoes I have, at least most of them. This is old plastic so alot of these screw holes have cracked. If a screw is recommended, are they shipped with the 15-015 pivot shoe since the same screw hole exists in this model?

For the 15-015 shoe, the screw is used to prevent the spiral from coming out of the shoe. It's not really necessary, but if you want to continue using it then a local hardware store should have it. You'll want a #6 x 3/8" Truss-head screw.
