You can get a long torx driver from somewhere like Sears - that's where
I got mine. 8" or so IIRC is the longest they have and works properly.
Or, a torx bit and some extenders for a bit-using screwdriver should
work. Menards and Home Depot carry a ratcheting driver with a T15 (and
other torx) bit (branded differently) for a reasonable price (a few $$)
with a "lifetime guarantee."

I really like that feature of the knife (the screwdriver bits, etc), but
wouldn't be able to live without the pair of pliers on my Gerber
"leatherman" widget. I use them way too much to break cable ties and
cut/strip wires to give them up. : )
