Never Seen This Kind Of Bolt, Please Help


Hey guys, just curious if anyone is familiar with this style of bolt. I'm switching out automated soap dispensers for a client and I've never came across this style. Its like a reverse flat head. If anyone can give me their name and if there's a socket or bit I can buy to get these suckers out. Thanks

It looks like some kind of tamper proof screw. Call the guys in the picture below. If they don't have it, they'll get it.

So get a flat head screw the right size, and clamp on with a pair of vise grips. Widen the slot with a hacksaw or whatever if needed.

Try drilling the head off or if you can get under it cut it.

Try grabbing the head with needle-nose vice grips.

The idea of using a screw like a socket (with vice grips) is a good one, too. Or make one with a dremel grinding wheel.
