I have found Well Nuts at the local hardware store. Granted they are SAE, but if you don't want to use an SAE bolt, you can get the ones one size smaller and run a 6mm tap through them and there you go. You can get several for a buck here at ACE hardware in Ga.
Even the cost of a Tap and Handle added you will come out better.
I had a few that didn't work too good. I ran a tap thru them , & they have worked fine now for at least 5 or 6 years now. I run a die over the tupperware screws too ever ones in a wile, it helps keep things working good.
1+ on Patric's advice. I usually have the tap and die out if I'm removing all the Tupperware as this '99 LT has some age on it. Most times there is one or two that seem to be grinding a bit and a quick trip through a tap or die cleans that up.
I might spring for the $20+ bucks for the Stainless set of screws but I do like the Black heads on them.
