    Hi

    Can anyone identify what type of screw head this is. It looks like a Z shape. It's on a leaf blower.

    Thanks

    Looks vaguely like a security screw (you can tighten but can't unscrew) but that would be a bit nonsensical on a leaf blower unless they really don't want you to get inside it.

    Agreed: security screw. You could try using a pointed punch to move it anti-clockwise. I'd replace it with a standard screw.

    Is it my tiny screen or does the slot on that clutch screw not appear uniform, I.e wider at the bottom ?
    Can't understand why that type of screw should be used there!
