1697 Controller Screws Require T9 not T8

Today I changed out my bumpers because they broke. I found an ExtremeRate for my specific model, and the bumpers seem to be working well. However, they provided a T8 security torx (with a "security" hole that was actually a divot and kinda worthless). The internet also said T8 except in a few notable places like ifixit.

And so, when I stripped a screw with that T8 because it was definitely too small for the screws in my 1697 controller (though not too small for the screws they provided), I went to get a T9 hoping for the best, and it worked perfectly!! That was exactly the size that was needed and turned a difficult task into a breeze.
