T shaped screw for battery cable

I am looking for a t-shaped screw that holds the battery cable on my '01 740iL. BMW ordered what they were showing in their system and it was not the correct one and they could not find the correct one in their system. It's original but they say I must order the battery cable in order to get the screw (which is literally shaped like a T). Positive cable is expensive and negative cable is like $27 in order to get a $.36 screw. Any suggestions of where to get one, besides a junk yard? Thanks!

I tried Pep Boys with no luck. Will try Auto Zone but I don't think it will work. Am hoping someone on line will have it. Thanks.
