Do new egg mates include the band studs?

I purchased brand new Egg mates from an authorized reseller (who coincidentally sold me my large BGE new as well 5-6 years ago).  When I went to install the Mates today, I found out the studs were missing from my bottom band. 

Are replacement studs included in the nuts and bolts which come with the Mates?  Should I just return these?

    A friend gave me my Mates (original packaging) and all hardware was included. Can't imagine they would sell this kit without the self clinching studs. Go back to your dealer, I'm sure he'll have plenty.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    I've got a bunch of them, just send me a PM with your address and how many you need.
  • Thanks for the offers and info.  The store scrounged some up for me.  Now, I'm struggling to get the lid aligned to the pot again.  They didn't have the spacers.
