Higher torque?[edit]

The claim that the Torx head design allows higher torque generation than a comparable socket head capscrew has not been demonstrated to be true. The statement on this in the article is merely parroting the patent application that was filed.

It should be noted that the Torx design creates multiple stress risers in the head that may cause fatigue failure in vibration applications. (talk) 17:46, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

Usage of these screws[edit]

Observation by a DIYer, they seem to be used/placed mainly to defeat DIYing. I noticed regular Phillips used on 99% of the locations on a object w/1% placed in recessed locations on the same object.

Contact angle diagram[edit]

The contact angle diagram (Torx-hex-contact-angles-forces.svg) has some weird star shape for the torx screw - they aren't that shape at all! TimmmmCam (talk) 13:58, 29 September 2017 (UTC)

I fixed it. No need to thank me. :-) TimmmmCam (talk) 15:00, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
