Default Need some ideas

The threaded inserts holding the cover on to my air filter cover on tthe box came loose lastn week while riding. Unfortunately I lost one of them and the remainder as just dangling there. Anyone know of where I might find these inserts at a local store? Checked Ace hardware... advance auto parts... I am thinking that since these are really just brass threaded inserts that I don't need anything specific.

Additionally.. when I find replacements I am planning on using some adhesive to keep them in place and not rely on just the teeth on the inserts.. plus use the weaker (blue?) thread locker on the screws themselves. Anyone have any other suggestions so that I don't find my cover dangling again?

Just use a wood screw, you'll never get the inserts to stick back in the plastic worth a damn.
