* The use of Torx screws/bolts as opposed to the common Allen bolts, creates a safer and nondestructive interface ensuring bolt/screw heads don't round out after just several times usage. To avoid damaging the heads of the screws/bolts, the Torx wrench must be securely pressed into the head. We suggest the use of a T-grip wrench, to keep the pressure central over the bolt (the use of other tools could reduce contact area and may result in damage to the bolt heads).
