I've been trying to get my rack properly set up in the closet - just to be sure that the rails will all mount and that everything is sized properly, plumb, and true. I'm having some troubles, but will work through them, shimming, trimming, etc.

In order to test-fit something, I opened the box for the Monsterpower HTUPS-2700 that @TMcG found for me. The front rack ears were easy enough to replace once I figured out what size allen wrench to use. The two rear ears are long and slotted to allow mounting in racks of variable depth. There are about a dozen threaded holes in the side of the case, but no screws were provided. Did I just get "screwed" or was I expected to source them myself? The diagrams in the manual all show the ears already mounted; I didn't even see mention of how to add or remove them.

If I need to source them, does anyone have any idea what screws I should buy?

Take the ups to the hardware store then you'll get what size you need. They probably forgot.
