What type of screw driver do i use to remove the screws on a Delonghi BCO330T

It appears to be a star shaped screw head, but there is a nub in the middle which will not allow me to use my star shaped screw driver

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

How do i remove the cover to check the fanbelt on my Miele s7260. The brush has stopped spinning and when i tried to check i found that it had unusual screws. They are not the flathead or phillips type but...


Hi,
Did you check the belts that go around the end of the brushes?

There is a service panel that remove with a coin. It is located at the rear, bottom of the vacuum.

The star shaped screws you mentioned are Torx screws. You can get a set of torx drivers at any hardware or home improvement store.

Hope this helps, if it does, please place a vote for me.

Good luck,

What kind of screw head is the star shaped one on tefal toaster


If its star shaped it's a Torx. Is there a small protrusion in the center of the star?
That would be a "Security Torx" screw and requires a special Torx bit... one with a hole in the center.
These are readily availble in most tolls supply places such as Sears

TORK BIT, MOST LIKELY A "T-15". IT'S A STAR SHAPED BIT FOUND AT ANY HARDWARE STORE.

Same problem


Probably a Torx, square or star driver or bit. A very small flat screwdriver at an angle may work if you can catch one of the edges of the "star" shape.

Trying to remove the filter screen to see if something is blocking


Try a Torx screw driver. It looks like an Allen but it is a star shape head.
