What size screws hold outlets in?
Also, what size screw goes in plastic electrical box?
Typical coverplate screws are 6-32. If the box is a round type, as commonly used for ceiling lights, then an 8-32 screw would be appropriate. If the box is rectangular, as used for wiring devices (switch, outlet, etc) then a 6-32 screw is what you will need.
Also, what type of screw is used to install switches and receptacles into device boxes? 406.5 states: "Screws used for the purpose of attaching receptacles to a box shall be of the type provided with a listed receptacle, or shall be machine screws having 32 threads per inch or part of listed assemblies or systems, in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions."
Also Know, how much weight can a 6 32 screw hold?

Ground Screw, Leader Point Hex/Philips/Slot Head. Size: 10/32 x 3/8 Inch. Hex Size: 5/16 Inch. Green Zinc Plated Steel.
