Also a jeweler’s screwdriver of a certain size can be used on the security fasteners. The screw is M2-.4. A 2mm screw. I picked up some at one of the big box stores, very inexpensive. The Bay also has many options.
Not sure why the security screws are used, but like an Allen head, they are visually appealing.
By the way, when the DIY case is sold as a standalone, it comes with a driver for the TA security bit.
Khadas offers a fastener kit with the driver.
Hello, It is a Triangle(TA) type security bit. I think it is 1.8mm(TA18), or less likely, a 2.0mm(TA20). I believe the measure is taken from the height of the triangle from its base.
If you are careful, you can get away with using a standard flat blade jeweler’s screwdriver. Similar in practice to this video…
Of course I can replace it with a standard screw, but to inconvenience your customers with a security screw just for a “bit of bling” that you (I?) can’t even see clearly without some aid seems a bit much.
I’m glad they’re including a screwdriver that works with the screws now, but that would probably get tossed aside and lost by the time I really needed it.
