Any hardware store will have plastic bolts and nuts. That's where I got my spares.

sounds like it... When I vacation hunt I bring two of EVERYTHING. literally. Nothing worse than getting all geeked up to hunt and your machine goofed, or you broke something or forgot something or it turns into a dry hunt or a neck deep water hunt. Always be prepared.
Go to a home depot or equivalent . Plumbing section and or hardware section should have plenty of plastic bolts and nuts. Cant say how durable they weill be but buy a few. GLHH (That means, good luck/happy hunting)

They are pretty tough, at least the ones I bought. Of course it's better to break a bolt than a coil ear.

As the posters mentioned any of the new plactic bolts will do. In fact that is all I use.

I recommend a double nut so it will not back off in wet conditions.
