Hardware replacement brainstorm session

Inherited a pendant light in the home we just bought. The plastic power toggle knob is stripped, so it just turns and turns. Replacement suggestions? Photo 1 shows the bear screw, photo 2 shows the complete unit, photo 3 shows the stripped toggle knob attached.

Couple of pictures of what we're looking at would be very helpful!

Please post a picture of where it is connected to the ceiling. Is there no wall switch?

There is no wall switch. The lamp functions fine; I can turn the screw with needlenose plyers.

This is strictly a hardware question. What would be the easiest way to replace the toggle knob without disassembling the lamp?

If you are lucky all you need to do is replace knob. Take kn0b off and go to a big box (HD OR LOWES) or lighting store and see if they can match or replace it.

Nice. Thanks, guys. I had assumed replacement parts would be impossible to locate. Apparently not.
