If you're talking about the two bolts on either side of the key that hold it down, they're not very tight, and come out easily with a pair of vise grips. I didn't need the torx bit to take them out, but I think they were 45. If I can check without taking the fake tank off I will.

+1. I couldn't find the bit anywhere locally (Scotts has them) and the vise grips worked great.

What is the "inverted" bit? (Pun intended.) See photo of a 5-pointer below.

But I have a nice selection of vice grips.

I was in the Harrisburg store a week ago, and their employee and I were unable to find any 5-point torx bits in their security kits, including this one.

Amazon has a small kit of 5-point torx bits for $8.99, though.

I'll have to look at my set at work. Thought there was one in there that fit them.
Could be I obtained one along the way and it ended up in that box as well.
