20+ years ago (the 5150 came out in 1981),
security torx bits were a bit hard to find around here.
About 10 years ago, they became quite common.

Security Torx does NOT provide much of any real security,
since you can mash down the center post, or in most cases,
just grab the head of the screw with a 5WR Vise-Grip.
