    I'm looking to remove the door of of the trailer we are wrapping and the hinges are attached with security fasteners that look like a torx but they have a post sticking up in the center so you would need the correct size torx bit with a hole in the center of it to clear the post. Any idea where I can get the proper tool for these?

    It's called a security bit. Just google it and you'll get many hits. The bit has a hole in the center for the pin.

    Do a google search for "torx TR" or "torx tamper resist"

    Thank you! I didn't think there was any chance they'd be available locally. I'll start calling the hardware stores.
