Well, to put binding screws into a catergory, youre looking at "dome head Phillips counter sunk machine screws", but with a slit cut in them and a plastic/nylon locking inserted. I've looked for these in the various fixture parts books that we've got at work to no avail. You'll not find something so specialized at your local hardware store and really, you're better off to get them from your local snow shop, or online. Yes, they are pricey, but that's what you pay for something so specialized..
You could just put in normal countersunk machine screws (m6 dia x about 12mm length from memory), but the flat top screws screw slots strip easier (as there is not enough meat compare to the dome head to act against the torsional forces of the screw driver), especially if you've used a dab of loctite to lock them in. Steer clear of anything with a galvanized coating as well.
