Free Shipping

You have enough to worry about. Let us take care of the shipping.

When you order stuff online, you hate two things: paying for shipping and waiting for your order to arrive. So, we decided that at our store you wouldn’t have to do either of those things. When you purchase any tools or parts from, we will not only ship your screwdriver using USPS First Class mail, we’ll even pay for it!

*Free shipping only applies to US orders.

The Advantage

There are other sites out there that sell screwdrivers with tri wing heads. We have even tried a few. You will not find a site that gives you a better deal, period. Their price might be cheap, but so is their quality.

What you will find is that their screwdrivers get stripped very easily, rendering them useless.Facebook-like-thumbs-up-symbol

The screwdrivers sold here are high quality guaranteed! If on some strange occasion your screwdriver doesn’t meet our guarantee you can contact us and you will get a brand new one FREE. Not only that, we keep our prices low with free shipping on everything we sell.

You can be confident that the screwdrivers you order from will ship fast and stay strong.

Shipping notes: Most orders will ship out within 1 – 3 business days. USPS doesn’t “guarantee” a delivery time on First Class mail, so we can’t promise an exact delivery date. That said, it has been our experience that they are pretty darn reliable and get there in less than four business days 99% of the time. It has been our experience that many orders will arrive in as little as two or three days from the day that they are shipped.

Do Stores Like Home Depot or Walmart have screwdrivers with tri wing heads?

We’ve checked all the stores we could think of and not one of them carries a screwdriver with a tri winged tip that will work for small electronic devices. At some of the stores we checked we were able to find security bit sets that contained tri wing bits. The only problem with those sets is that the bits are too large in diameter and too short to reach into the small recessed holes that are found on the small electronic devices that use tri wing screws.

Are there tri wing screwdriver alternatives that are available locally?

There are three methods of improvising this screwdriver that are popular among people who can’t wait a few days for one to arrive in the mail.

  • Small flat blade screwdriver
  • Modified Phillips screwdriver
  • BIC Pen

We have tried all of these methods. Some of them sort of work, some of them don’t work at all. The main problem with all of them is that they have a good chance of stripping out the screw head. Good luck getting the screw out after the screw head is stripped.

The old adage of using the right tool for the job applies well here. Spend a few dollars, wait a few days and save yourself a massive headache.

    Amazing screwdrivers.

    I really needed just the Tri-wing for my gamecube controller but i bought the set because a few more dollars couldn’t hurt. Absolutely do not regret the purchase and the Tri-wing works beautifully.

    Worked just fine for me

    My son stuck some cards and small plastic beads in the Disk drive which didnt come out.

    Immediately I began shopping for the necessary Tri wing screwdriver. Amazon is easy for me because I have prime but I didnt find a single screwdriver that had positive reviews. You can buy 5 of these cheap options but really why do I want 5 ones that warp.

    Then I found you guys. Your reviews are positive because you are selling a quality product and my experienced proved the same. The screwdriver came faster than I expected and I took apart the Wii and got everything out of it that shouldn’t be there and then put it back together. The Wii works again and I still have this screwdriver for the next time. The Tri Wing screwdriver I bought from you guys performed just as you promised. Thank you!

    Disassemble Nintendo hardware for a reasonable price

    I’d purchased a tri-wing screwdriver from another manufacturer, and it worked for my Gameboy and original GBA, but was too thick for a GBA SP. The tool sold by seems pretty high quality, and let me take apart the SP. Definitely recommended.

    great product

    My old triwing from amazon broke (after two uses), and I looked around for a new one. I checked out amazon and ebay and decided I didn’t want the same shoddy quality driver that seems like it’s the only one available. The driver quality from this site is great! And for a small premium, you get a nice driver that looks like it’ll last a long time. Great build and ergonomics. I was apprehensive about buying from some random site, but with only $5 at risk I decided to go for it. Happy I did, too!

    Perfect for GameCube controllers!

    Didn’t see a review for GameCube controllers, so I figured I should write one! Very useful for them old or new. The magnet is big plus for me because it easily sucks the screws out of the deep holes. A very well made screwdriver, and that’s something I noticed right out of the box. Highly recommended!

    Great Customer Service!

    This is a great company with amazing customer service! I ordered a lens replacement for my Wii and the price was very reasonable and included free shipping. My order was shipped that day and i received the product really fast. I went about replacing the lens and half way into it I broke a major tab that held the power supply.

    Arrrrggg my fault but what do i do with the new lens? I emailed the company and explained my situation and asked if I could return the lens. I got a response super fast and told me what I needed to do to return the lens as well as some sympathetic words.
    The only thing I had to pay for was the shipping back. I was refunded my cost of the lens.

    The communication was awesome and quick and I would buy from this company again!

    No worries here if you buy from them.
    Thank you so much!

    It Gave My Wii a 1-Up Mushroom

    I needed a special screwdriver for my Nintendo Wii and that’s when I found this website. When I received my screwdriver, the first thing I notice is how cushioned the handle feels. Also, the back end of the screwdriver feels round and smooth for turning. Lastly, the tip is magnetized for easy insertion through narrow shafts. I’m extremely pleased with this product.
    I think it’s a steal deal, don’t you think?

    Really good in a tough situation

    I just got an xbox one and my Wii U had a problem were the left analog stick would scroll downwards but now since I got the nintendo screwdriver I could repair it myself without spending a hundred dollars.
    The screwdriver was great and the shipping was quick.

    Worked as advertised.

    I was concerned by reading a number of reviews of people who purchased other tri wing screwdrivers on other sites that I might experience the same results, ie.. stripped screwdriver blade or destroy the screw head itself, so I ordered two tri wings and prepared for the worse. Removing the screws was easy with no damage at all. There was plenty of torque and a very comfortable grip with the tri wing. I highly recommend this product. You won’t be disappointed.

    Amazingly fast shipping! Works great

    I was absolutely amazed at how quickly I received my Nintendo Tri Wing Screwdriver! I placed my order late Friday night, received an email that it shipped on Saturday, and I got it Monday! Very impressed! Especially when I didn’t have to pay for shipping! The screwdriver worked great too. However, I was an idiot to think I could replace the shell on a Nintendo DS lite. This is NOT a project for beginners!

    Excellent service for a hard to acquire product.

    I wouldn’t usually offer to review a product of this type, but between prompt service both in correcting a bad shipping address, quick (free) shipping, and receiving exactly what I ordered, this was a very pleasant experience.

    I ordered the Wii Screwdriver set, which includes the two screwdrivers:
    1 Tri-Wing size Y0 and 1 Phillips size #000 , while they are inexpensive drivers on their own, they are not poor quality and performed with no issues in dissembling my aging Wii for minor repairs.

    Note that these drivers are not easy to source for any reasonable price, and the only alternative is drilling out the screws or otherwise damaging your Wii, so with free shipping you are not loosing anything by buying from

    It worked beautifully, much better than the piece of junk I got from Newegg. And it arrived just in time for me to replace a laser in a customers wii. Thank you for a great product.

  31. Rated 5 out of 5



    Thanks for the quick shipping of the screwdriver and the competitive price. The reviews of similar screwdrivers on Amazon are mixed and I was a little concerned about the quality of the screwdriver I would be getting. To my surprise it is a pretty nice screwdriver. I was not easy on it at all and the tip is still fine and I never stripped any screws. Finally, that noisy damn Wii is quiet. It was driving me nuts!

    I received the screwdriver within a week. I would order from this seller again.

    great product

    Great job! Screwdriver arrived in 5 business day (by regular ground freight) I tried every tri bit screwdriver I could find, and this was the only screwdriver I could find to fit the security screws on the wii game console. Well worth the money instead of bringing in for repair!

    Works great!

    It arrived in just a few days, as advertised, and works perfectly. I was immediately opening GBA cartridges and a DS Lite console for repair. Couldn’t be more satisfied.
    I’d also rather support a good 3rd party site/seller than Amazon or eBay.
