Why do companies use Torx security screws?

Torx security screws and fasteners are very widely used, due to their efficient tamper-proof design, the range of sizes available and relatively low cost. The Torx design, originally created by Camcar Textron in 1967, features grooves in a six-point pattern, with a pin in the recess to resist a standard Torx bit.

Are there different types of Torx screws?

Some of the most common sizes are T10, T15, and T25, but there are many specialized sizes including T47 and even T5. 5. If you need the security version, an S is added to the end of the number. External Torx use an E before their size, but do not correspond to the internal sizes.
