    anyone know where I can get a one way screw remover tool

    like this one?



    I've got one way screws that are tightened by a slotted screw driver and half of the screw head is curved up so you can't "unscrew" it with the same slotted screw driver.

    I have one. They don't work all that well. Trying to get a lock off your door?

    look up "tamper proof" screwdrivers in catalogs.

    If you have a dremel tool or equivalent, you could just use a mini zip wheel to cut a proper slot in the screw head as long as you don't mind getting a few marks on the surrounding material.

    this is a pretty good small tamper proof bit kit we use for work.

    Go to Refrigerative Supply . They have them 100%. They should be able to sell you one even if you dont have an HVAC ticket. Just dont go asking for refrigerant.

    Its not expensive at all. I got it for $13.00 You may pay bit more. Dont know.

    I need to remove this type of screw



    I was told this type of screw remover would work,



    (mine is without the outside collar)

    so I ended up getting one after work and guess what? Yeah, it screws one way, but only TIGHTER!!!!!. It doesn't unscrew.... Bastards...

    I would try the dremel method, but the screw is recessed into a metal lock housing, so there's no way of slicing a slot in there for a flathead. I'm thinking of using those bit removers and unscrewing it. Kinda like this kit now.



    I wanted to save the bolts, but figured there's no point.

    Drill 2 small holes to use for the driver you have in the OP?

    If you have a relatively new flat head I have found that pressing real hard while turning the screw will work. Failing that, PM me and I'll loan you my undriver if you like.

    Sounds like you are trying to remove a Weiser double cylinder deadbolt If you have a large enough c clamp, you can relieve the pressure on the threads by squeezing the lock on the door. It doesn't take much.

    hehh hehhh. no not really.

    it is a patio door lock, but the screws are recessed into the lock housing, so I can't grip the shit out of it with vise grips or dremel a slot into it.

    I think what I will do is dremel a hole into it to get pilot hole working and then get those reverse drill bit auger things from Craftsman to unscrew it. The reason why I need to remove it is because the patio door lock has never really worked and I want to remove it.

    Then you should stick with what you know. Masterlock is almost the worst. Weiser used to be better than it is now that Kwikset bought them out a couple of years ago. Schlage is about the best that HD sells.
