Zip Dee Center Support Arm Foot badly bent

My Zip Dee center support arm is badly bent, beyond repair, and is just barely holding on with 2 screws.

I had a new one sent from Zip Dee and am ready to replace the busted one.

What I can't decide is if I should use stainless steel metal screws (that is what appears to be holding it on) or buy a rivet gun and use the two rivets that came with the new support arm.

Since it already has screws, I think rivets are out of the question.

Any suggestions?

Jim,
If you can find stainless steel screws, that are just a little larger that the original holes, that should hold. I think I would also get the proper size lock washer....
Just out of curiousity, what happened?
