Transformer

Hello, I need to open a transformer because I heard something shaking inside , could be small piece of plastic or so! I need to buy a bit/socket to open it and I do not know where to find it or what it called, can anyone please help with the socket name or any information. Photos included

Thanks

There shouldn't be a problem allowing that to roll around inside the transformer.

A triwing safety bit is needed. I think that bit is included in most of the safety bit sets widely available.

You need the opposite direction.... a socket. I have them but haven't seen them around for sale
.
This is the triwing for Eaton screws. They were used on some auto radios.

That rattling is most likely the internal fuse. Honestly, just replace the transformer, the bit/bit set will cost more than that transformer will. Most of these things are just glued together, anyway.
