What type of Tamperproof Screw do I have TP3, Torx, Tri-Wing ?


Most of us know of the humble Flat-Head, Philips-Head, Pozidrive, Socket (Allen) and the now more widely used Torx Head as the most common type of screw head but what are the other types called and can you buy drivers to unfasten them ?

Here is a sample list of all those that you might come across
  1. Flat-Head (the most common)
  2. U-Shaped Head ( Flat-head with the middle missing)
  3. One-Way slotted (goes in with normal flat-head but can't be removed using a flat-head can come in Oval, Truss and Round)
  4. Philips (aka cross-head also very common)
  5. Frearson (similar to Philips with a narrower cross-head)
  6. Pozidrive (PZ similar to Philips but designed for more torque)
  7. Robertson (Square)
  8. Hex Socket (aka ALLEN Key)
  9. TORX ( 6-pointed star)
  10. TORX PLUS
  11. TTAP ( similar to standard TORX there drivers can be used to insert TORX screws but not the other way round)
  12. Torq-Set (similar to Philips but the four arms of the cross are offset with respect to each other so a Philips wont fit)
  13. Tri-Wing (aka Tri-Blade)
  14. Opsit (reverse threaded Tri-Wing)
  15. Spanner (Snake Eyes)
  16. XZN (Triple Square)
  17. Polydrive (Castled)
  18. Splinedrive (similar to TORX 12-pointed star)
  19. DoubleHex (similar to TORX 12-pointed star)
  20. Bristol (Castled similar to Polydrive used in Avionics)
  21. TP3 (Triangle Recess Pan Head)
There are also Security versions of numbers 2 (Secure-Philips) 5 (Secure-Torx) that have a Pin-head in the centre I am sure there are other Pin-Head versions as well

I had a AC transformer that had a triangular recessed screw head and I had already tried to use a Tri-Wing screw driver but I began to shred the wings and I just couldn't find the name of it eventually found it to be a TP3 Tamperproof Screw

All you need do click on the screw-heads and they will turn and open up the name and type of screw it is.

Finding a screw driver that will open a TP3 is difficult to say the least I have a minor look on ebay as this is a specialist screw type and expensive

Another difficult type to get hold of the the Tri-Wing or Tri-Blade now common on all game stations from the Nintendo GameBoy to the X-Box

What torx bit to take out screws?


Go to your local Home Depot type place. They come in sets. You don't need a specific one, you just go through them until you get the right fit. I have a set that is Torx, Hex, Philips, and Flat.

Screw bit size the steering column cover on a 2001 Ford Escape


You thought it was a Phillips Screw

It is a Torx Screw like a T20 size, most likely

You also come across some metric hex at times,
so make sure it looks like a double hex,thus torx

Front brake hardware installation. Need a picture of how the 2 caliper pins are held in place.


caliper pins are usually long pins with screw threads. Usually have a metric hex head bolt or a TORX BOLT HEAD.

Kenmore 66462,changing the bulb,went out in the first year,has some funky screws on the back that i have never seen before,what kind of tool do you need for theses screws,there is a little stud sticking...


You can remove them using using a T20H Torx type or GTXH20-100 screwdriver. If the correct tool is not available, there are several ways to remove the screws:

- Use a hammer and a small punch or similar tool to knock out the middle post of the screw, then use a standard T20 Torx bit to remove the screws. (Use safety glasses).

- Insert a small flat-bladed screwdriver (such as a jeweler’s type) into the slot between the post and the edge, tap the screwdriver firmly with a hammer to loosen the screw, grip the screwdriver with pliers, and remove the screw.

- Use a hacksaw or Dremel tool to cut a slot in the head of the screw, then use a flat-bladed screwdriver to remove the screws. (Use safety glasses).

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Where blinker relay on the 97 Chevy blazer and what does it look like?


It's behind the panel to the left of the cigarette lighter. You need a Torx 25 screwdriver and another screwdriver for those hex shaped screws, forgot the size.
First unscrew the 2 Torx 25 screws beneath the steering wheel. Then unscrew the rest of those Hex screws on the bottom. The panels overlap, so be prepared for a lot of unscrewing.
You do need to unscrew the middle black panel on the bottom, right beneath the cig lighter. It's held by two Hex shaped screws, one on each side and are hard to unscrew. Also you need to remove your spare change sliding tray to unscrew the last hex looking screw. 
Once you pop your panel off, the turn signal flasher is the right one. The Hazard flasher is the left one. You can find a replacement part at Auto zone. It's shaped like a cylinder with TWO prongs on it. 

Good luck and hope this helps
