They are an odd thing, they are magnetic, and dont seem to offer much grip on the "nut" (which in our case is rounded edge flat head)
I have a feeling, the few that we had that used this, have since been replaced. If you have to luck today, I will have alook around the rooms (80 odd), and see if we still need the bit.

cheers, I'm hoping Steve21 will get back with some info as he has a picture so maybe he know's something, or perhaps he's like us, got it from caretakers. and now it's vanished...

Having looked at ours, you will find that the fit isnt actually circular, just slight oval.

ahh, that'll explain why it can unscrew the locking nut. I thought it was magic or something up until now!

We also found with the cages that have these, even with the security bar removed, the projector (Epson EMP-83) still needed the pole mount removing.

Could you not dremel a line across the nut and then use a standard screwdriver? I had to do that to remove the bracket from one of our projectors since it needed to be mounted onto a new one.

Good idea cheers.
Looks like it is an OVAL PAN HEAD SECURITY TOOL. Just got to measure up to make sure

Cheers for the help by the way!

Not sure how big it is but something like this:
Irwin 10504635 Bolt-Grip Expansion Set £13.88
would do the job if they go small enough.

Take a photo of it and run it through Google Goggles.
