I've always just used the right sized flat blade screwdriver to get these open. Of all the things I use that require security bits, never saw that triangular Intellivision styled bit for sale. Never looked very hard for 'em either I guess. You try digikey or Mouser yet?

FYI, This Wikipedia article has a good rundown of proper names and some uses of each type of screw drive.

The one for The carts looks like type TA = Tri Angle.


I never realized how many different screw types there was!

I like that little set! I may have to buy that, even if i only use it a few times. I like tool kits.

I'd be smart to get a set like this too. Just don't want to pay that much. Not after the money i already spent today. lol

I'm in the "right sized flat head" department myself. I bought a huge kit of "Security Bits" once, and it didn't have the triangle either. A small enough "hex" head though also seems to work, from what I recall.

I have a couple inexpensive ones in stock. It's decent for the price and beats using a flathead.
