An L-shaped Torx key can have an advantage over a screwdriver as its shape allows you to apply more leverage. As such, a Torx key might be more suitable for heavy-duty application than a typical Torx driver. Conversely, the screwdriver style Torx drivers are able to be used in more confined spaces, and as such are more suited to precision applications.
Tamperproof Torx screws are ideal for panels and machine housing that might need to be regularly maintained but are kept in places where they might be subject to interference.
What are the advantages of TORX head screws?
TORX screws, sometimes known as Star screws, are a simple and efficient solution to many drive problems. It has the advantages of virtually eliminating ’contact point stresses’, ’shearing’ and excessive ’end load’ requirements on the driver. By reducing the risk of 'cam out' there is less chance of damage to the screw, and less wear and tear on the driver. A such, TORX is often regarded as a higher quality alternative to slotted, phillips and hexagon head types.
