Lost Headlight Bolt/Screw

Hi all! I tried searching but I didn't have any luck finding anything. Either that or I'm blind!

I was recently switching out my headlights and I lost one of the screws that holds the headlight in (the ones you unscrew to take out the headlight). I know it's 10mm, but does anyone know the length? Thanks!

I'm at work and don't have the tools to take one of the other screws out. I wanted to go to the store after work, so I was hoping someone would know.

10mm by 25mm long(1"). Don't forget to purchase a fender washer so you don't crack the plastic, the original has one built in.

No I took one out and measured it. Only takes 3 seconds and I didn't lose mine.
