It will fit over the screw but you'll need to grind it round to be able to fit it in the deep holes and then cut a trace in the end so you can turn it with a plain screwdriver.

Modifying a flat screwdriver will be quicker, both will probably be a good solution, you could use the proper bit for the screws you can reach and the modded screwdriver for the deeper ones. It will save some wear on that.

There are plain looking screwdrivers with a gamebit head but it was a ling time since I saw one of those for sale.

Looks like it could be prefect for a Virtual Boy.

Apparently the same driver has been used here:

You could also do what I did. Just grind away with a dremel tool the material that prevents the bit from reaching the deepest screws. Its a better option IMO then to cut the bit in half and notch it to work with a screw driver.

Here's the one for you akumie, on Swedish Tradera:
http://www.tradera.com/Gamebit-4-5mm- ... -auktion_301509_127860359

If HonkeyKong would look at my first link he'd see that they do the same thing, just with a shorter gamebit.

well I was going to buy it but dont want to modify it so it should open the 2 screws far in thw whole

My mothers husband has tried many times to open the screws but everytime he needed a new tool, so hard to modify so I just want something that works for once without needing so much finf modifing to it

Here's the link again:

This will fit with no modification.

I bought one of these:
http://www.tradera.com/Gamebit-4-5mm- ... -auktion_301509_127860359

... and it didn't fit in the two hard ones, the handle touches the middle part before it gets to the bottom. There's only about 55mm until the handle starts, to be on the safe side you need 74mm... It works but it's a bad fit over the screws, it should have been a little bit smaller.

So maybe that one at rs-online is the next bet, that one also looked good.

Order from Sweden:
http://se.rs-online.com/web/search/se ... earchTerm=4447891&x=0&y=0
Costs 100 SEK, I'm guessing tax and shipping costs as well...

So, don't buy this, it won't fit the last two screws, it can possibly be modified but the nudges on the metal that grips the inside of the handle are very close to the bottom part of the handle:

I bought it too, for the same reasons, but sent it back for a full refund (including shipping costs).

I have asked rs-online but as they want company-customers I'm not sure I'll even get an answer.

I think Krisse should buy a few and sell here in a PlanetVB-shop.
