OF1010 base connectors
« on: August 12, 2019, 08:44 PM »
I just ordered an OF1010 and was watching this video on it. It shows these fasteners in the base, I've never seen a head like that. Is there a tool included with the OF1010 for this? Or is it just a combo slot that fits different bits?

It’s just a combination of Torx and slotted. You can use either tool. I sometimes prefer a slotted driver as it’s easier to keep track of how much I’ve turned the screw.

That looks like an ECX screw head.

I found this about the ECX. I have seen them on switches and receptacles and other electrical components but to date I have not seen them anywhere else.

Just a Torx 15 with a standard slotted added if that is what you got?

If you rotated the lobes of the central squareish part 90 degrees it would look sort of similar.

That bit certainly won't fit, as has been said either a Torx or plain screwdriver bit will fit, no special bit needed.

You're right, didn't catch that when I looked at it.
