I need a special tool to get my shark vacuum apart

The fasteners look like an allen head with a pin in the middle. Looks like you would need an allen wrench with a tiny hole drilled in the middle of it. Any ideas what/where I could get a tool like this?

Is this a good question?

@toolbag it sounds like you are talking about the tamper resistant Allen screws. It is a security feature that is easily circumventeed wit tool kits like like these. you can get those for Torx as well as many other screw heads.
