Help Identifying Mean Well RS-15-24 barrier block stud size so we can spec crimp connectors for it

Product page: https://www.digikey.ca/short/9zzh0c94
Datasheet: https://www.meanwellusa.com/upload/pdf/RS-15/RS-15-spec.pdf
Description: 24V 0.625mA AC-DC standalone enclosed power supply with barrier blocks for wire-board connecting.

The mechanical specification shows a very vague dimension… 6mm wide barriers with unknown studs to hold a spade or ring crimp connector.

It could be M2.5, M3, M3.5, M4, #4, or #6 hole size.
Naturally, I would guess something in the middle, but a datasheet should usually leave zero room for interpretation.

Am I missing something here?
Reply and let me know if you can’t find a reason either so I don’t feel like I’m the only one!

Hello there Infinion,

Thank you for reaching out to the TechForum. I did a physical measurement on this screw, and the thread diameter measures 2.9mm, and the square captive plate beneath each screw measures 5.9mm.

I think its safe to say these are M3 screws with 6mm square captive plates, max terminal width can go up to 6mm wide.

Thank you very much, Ryan!
