If it's a Gen 1 they're 10mm.

You may need to grab a thread gauge to measure the actual threads. I agree with the earlier posts in that the nut head size is usually 10 or 13mm, but that doesnt help with actual thread pitch if your nuts are missing entirely.

Since its a completely removable part you should take the bracket to the hardware store and just try everything out in the drawers until you find the correct one.
