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?

@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.

yes but how do you find out if u need metric or SAE


the product is a shark vacuum


torx screws are the type


@mcgarry there is no difference. The same Torx drivers are used to drive SAE and metric


Unfortunately, at least two of the security screws are in a deep and narrow hole that is impossible to reach with the short bits that are commonly sold.
