Customer Questions & Answers

What does tamper-proof mean?

Asked by: Woody
Woody, A tamper proof torx bit has a recess in the center of the bit to allow it to work on security or tamper proof torx screws or bolts. It will still work on non-taper proof bolts as well.

6-point? 5-point?

Photo does not show number of points; did not see in detail.
Asked by: adobero
Adobero, Torx® is an industry standard pattern that features 6 points or fins on the bit or fastener. If you are looking for a bit with only 5 points then it is not a Torx® fastener.

Do I use this with an impact driver or a socket wrench?

I am removing seat belts posts in a van and I'd think they are in pretty tight, what tool should I get to use with this?
Asked by: albertish
Hello albertish, A socket wrench would probably be the best solution. An impact wrench would probably put too much force on the screw. To make the job easier make sure the socket wrench you're using has a long handle for better leverage. I hope this helps. Cheers, Chris

T30 bit top of bit to socket face 13/32 deep (reach of bit until you contact face of socket) then add length socket length. Bit does not come out of socket. 3/8 drive. Quality is on par with all the others out there. Not marked on tool, but made in China like most everything else. Good value for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool , lifetime warranty for under $2 These are just little tools, do not tighten to 80ftlb!!! obviously Its going to break! 80inlb is no problem, ive compared them to craftsman/ mac tool and snapon they all break or bend at the same point but at a 10th of the price with lifetime warranty you can not go wrong!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy Torx Drive Bit Socket This is the type of product that you don't need or use every day, but when you need it, there's no substitute. If you have a six point "star" screw to put in, but your drill is too big or awkward to fit in the area, then you can use one of the Torx drive bit sockets to attach to & easily ratchet the screw into place. It has a good, strong grip where it's inserted into the screw and being able to just use a ratchet to securely set the screw as far in as you need it to go is really easy and handy. Again, you may not have situations where you can't just hold your electric drill in place, but when you do, this is the alternative you want to have at your fingertips to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Torx 3/8 in. Drive Bit Socket This torx bit seems to be well built and held up to several uses on a small impact driver and a standard ratchet. The bit and the socket are of two different types of metal the bit is black and the socket is chromed. However the bit does not come out of the socket and is not replaceable so you have to replace the whole socket rather than just the bit. They say that it has a lifetime warranty so that should not be a problem but it is a little bit of a waste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid tool I have received a ten piece Husky "Torx" socket set and the ones I did use prove to be a solid tool. Attaches to a 3/8th drive wrench. The sockets are meaty and torx head is as well. Means to say that it is made of quality metal with what appears to be a percision head with regards to the quality of torx. Also has the "Security" head torx for that security torx screw. The sockets are sold separately with a wide range of "T" sizes. Quality product...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flimsier than any tool I've ever seen Low price is not value if a product is not fit for its intended purpose. Needed to remove seat belts to take out rear interior panel in a Ford truck. At first attempt this bit broke leaving a piece stuck in the bolt's head. Thankfully Dremel saved the day and I got it out but complicated a simple job. Keep in mind I'm no big strong man: 50 years old woman, with artritis and a 24" ratchet. Had to wait until next day to buy from Snap On: bit worked like a charm (bolt was fine, not rusted, perfect thread). Brittle like no tool I've ever used.
