Why??

Why wouldn't a regular allen head work here?

Take it out and throw it so far that a Hawk cant see it.
I have a spike on mine so I can just use my fingers.

Another mystery of the mind. You're not in the stall in a public restroom.

I'm always working very diligently to discover the obvious.

Haha! My point exactly! Like, is there some secret part behind there?

If it was mine and I kept something important in there....like a charging cell phone, wallet, firearm or whatever...I know it would be pretty safe. Every bike (and a lot of cars and trucks) parked around you has an allen wrench to fit the standard bolt.... it's there just for extra security.

Perhaps it is in very poor artistic appeal that you would need a tool shaped like a star to remove the cover that has the Star logo on it.

Keep moving, learning, loving, and living.

I used a drill and drilled out the center stud than tossed the bolt and replaced it

You can buy a security bit set off of amazon for a few bucks.

The point is to make it hard to remove this.
