Does anyone know what screw bit i need to take it off? Not to do anything dodgy, but I have had my wall re-plastered, and need to screw the box thingy back in.

Here is a close up of the screw TW have used:

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers

They are star driver fitings m8 you can get then anywhere, the reason they use these are that they claim they own all equip upto and including this box, so guess they dont want you tampering with it - not really fair is it - you cant even move a box in your own house, id kick it of the wall and cal;l them to put it right.

That was a quick reply. Thanks.

Ive tried the long nose pliers but can't grip the bl**dy things. I guess i'll have to try and find the star driver fbit.

Hi All,

Have you tried a flat bladed screw driver?
Wouldn't have thought there'd be that tight so might work.
