What have you seen this on?


@kyle - Hi Kyle,

Seagate external drives use it Can’t find screw bit for External HD

I've seen a few other devices which have needed them.


In the past, the only applications I've seen for these were larger ones on BMW mass airflow sensors and some other automotive computer-related stuff.

Can you tell what Torx/pentalobe size the ones used on the Seagate drive look closest too? T10/T15?


@eric_e - Hi Eric, I met you a few years ago at the un-conference.

Sorry, I don't know but I'll try to find out posting to the question (above link) maybe we can find out. But does it make sense just to add the full set of nine? Or at least offer the set as a standalone.

I still can't believe all of the different screw interfaces there are! Just too many.
