4 Steps to Remove a Screw with a Torx Screwdriver
Step 1: Identify the ScrewThere are different types of screwdrivers available in the market because there are different types of screws. You cannot use a single driver to loosen or tighten every type of screw. So, you need to identify the type of the screw so that you can determine the type of screwdriver.
Step 2: Fit the Tip of the Screwdriver inside the Screwhead
Step 3: Apply Pressure and Turn the DriverDecide what you want to do – loosening or tightening the screw. If you want to tighten the screw hold on the handle, press down firmly, and turn it right. On the other hand, if you want to tighten the screw hold on the handle, press down firmly, and turn it left.
Step 4: Secure/ Remove the Screw
Final WordThe Torx screwdrivers are available in different sizes. Their sizes are identified by a letter and a number. For example – a Torx screwdriver can be of size T15 or T25. The higher the number the bigger the distance between the opposite points on the six-point screw head. You should be aware of the size of the screws while purchasing a Torx screwdriver. If the size does not match you cannot use the tool.
