View Full Version : Triwing Screw driver

12-07-2007, 06:22 PM
I need to open my wii to put in a chip, and it requires a triwing screwdriver to turn some of the screws. Does anyone know if any retailers in this city actually sell this screw driver? I've heard Sanyo and a few other companies use this screw type also.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have one, came with my Wii mod chip. Don't think there's any in town. Used it to put a custom opaque blue case on a NDS Lite as well.

I don't know if I'm going way out of my way. But could I borrow that screwdriver for a day? I'll gladly pay a rental fee and pick it up and drop it off. I have a wiikey here that I want to install, but I'm pretty well stuck until I can easily open it up.

I was going to go to Canadian Tire today and see if they have any security bit sets available, which have all the bit heads for strange applications like this, but I'm not sure if they even sell them.

If I had, I would let you use it for free but I don't, sorry.

sonic north?

I don't know if I should lend it out. IT came free but I'm guessing it's only good for so many uses before it wears out. I modded the Wii, put his on my son's NDS Lite


But now that I have a black XBOX 360 and a black PS3, I have this coming in shortly...


Anyways...let me know if you can't find one. I'm not gonna ask for a rental fee...lol...just that you take extra care not to strip it up.

Thanks everyone. I'm going shopping today and I'll try to find one. I'll try to borrow as a last resort. 8-)

I tried the melted pen trick, but the size of the screws made it impractical.

There is a "stripped screw" bit that I bought from Canadian tire, actually got the whole set.

They work on any form of screw head.

THey are supposed to be for stubborn or stripped screws.

Anything you do inside that modem/digitalbox will be undone as soon as it locks onto the network LOL

Look at it in a different way, not opening, but,locking.

You can open up, but only three things can happen from there.

#1 You can see the inside
#2 You can flash the bios to open up the connection, but then it will get reset once it is lock on to the network.
#3 You'll perm damage it /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

You can buy a set of all sorts of weird screwdriver bits (1") from that new store in the Wellington Square Mall called ToolTown. They're called Security Bits.

Here's a link to what they look like. They're only $3.00.


Last time I was there, they had quite a few of them.
