    Internet cable box. B n E

    Trying to break into and enter my internet provider's grey colored box that's hanging on the outside my house.

    It has a weird tamper proof screw.
    Any ideas on how to un loosen the screw without damage to the property?

    I'll take a pic when I get better daylight on that side of the house

    first Id get a collection of bits that are sold for tamper screws, they're not impossible to find pretty common actually.. chinaharbor freight, blowes, home cheepo probably has them..

    Don't waste all day trying not to damage it. It is a bomb, and you might have to hit it with a hammer.

            looks like the internal type unless you can see a torx type thing in the hole

            might be able to get it with a flat blade screw driver if you apply side pressure only...maybe grind it until there is just a bit of a side tooth

            or order a cheap cable box key on amazon

              Ace hardware used to have specialty screwdrivers or bits for tamper resistant things, not sure if they still do.

                A hard potato, maybe?
