Torx head fasteners

Ok there is a screw that I need to remove in one of my basement compartments, it is between T15 and T20. I thought I had a full set but neither of those will fit it or any other of the screws in that compartment. I have also tried and alternate t-20 driver. The 15 is to small. Is there a torques size in between those two?

Well I was able to get it out by using a pair of grip tight pliers. Fortunately I could get to the rear side of it and turn the screw enough times that I could then get ahold of the head and back it out. Turns out you are correct. It is not torks, but what I don't know. It has 8 splines, is that called e spline? Why is it that we have to change screw types every couple of years? It really "torks" me!!!

It is also known as a "Triple Square" bit. I use then in the automotive industry as well. That being said a square bit will work also.

I have numerous of these in my coach as well. They work great, once you realize that a standard #2 Roberts (square drive) bit is what is needed.
