What screw is this?

This screw thing is on my Turnigy Accucell-6 charger, I am not familiar with it. Is this an allen key?

Thanks,

Kamu

It certainly looks like an Allen screw. I have that same charger so when I get the chance I can check for you.

I'm sorry to say that my Accucel A6 has ordinary cross-point screws in that position.

Try torx....Some torx screws bhave a pin in the middle preventing the use of torx bits that don't have a hole in the center. These are the tamper-proof type found on hard drives and telephone equipment.
Hope this helps a little....

Hard to see in that picture. Torx is a six pointed star, whereas Allen is a plain hexagon. Should be easy enough to distinguish in the flesh, and if its Allen then I would expect it to be metric sized.

It was an Allen key. Found we had some Allen key rings and just tried the small metric ones. Got a match :).
