I would suggest going to a local hardware store. Most likely it will have to be special ordered. If you have an extra screw take it with you to match up the size and type. There are many different types of tamper proof screws. Take a photo or draw a picture of the screw you need. If you are not sure of the size maybe get several measurements.

thank you for your speedy reply, im not looking for a screw, im looking for a screw removal tool to remove a notched 1/2 inch across spanner screw. its a flat head screw with a notch on two sides of the screws. i have tried a size 14 spanner bit and its a little small, so i need a size 16 spanner bit or a one way screw removal tool that has two little pieces of metal on the end spread apart enough to fit into the notches. thank you!!!
