Default Search for files with parenthesis in name

Finally found out the way:

In the Search box, type:

name:~"*(2)*"

How do I search for files who's name contains a parenthesis? Entering (2)
gives me all files containing 2 (which are a couple of houndred, while
there should only be two or three with (2) in the name) since the
parentheses have a special meaning when searching. Ive tried to use \ to
escape them but no luck.
