Default Removing S3 handkey sensor...???

I bought an s3 handkey, but everytime I take it into a store the senors go off on my way in. One thread on here said there is a sensor inside that needs to be removed and I'm wondering if someone can tell me specifically how to do that. The screws on the back of it are weird and have a little pin sticking up in the middle so I can't even get a screwdriver in there.
Thanks.

Why in the world would you want to remove it?

That would make a hell of an excuse. They will see you walk in and it beep, so when you're walking out, they will think nothing of it.

I know, and that's what happens but it's a pain in the butt and it brings attention to you and I'm trying to stay below the radar. Today the guy at the door made me take almost everything out of my purse and almost gave me a pat down before he let me in. I had to be all nice and friendly and laugh-y to make him think it was nothing. I hate that. I'm not a people person. I want to go unnoticed.
If, for some reason, I can't remove the sensor, would wrapping the key in foil keep it from going off?

To take those screws out you need whats called a security torx set. Just go to sears or where ever that sells tools around you and ask for one, they will show you. I have a handkey too and removed the sensor thing inside.

Thanks for the torx reference. When I get the right tool, do I just need to remove the two silver screws on the back or is there more to it?

nope thats it. it comes right apart after you remove the screws and the little alarming coil will be sitting right there, just take it out and screw the back piece back in.

yeh, get a torx set, easily available at any home depot or hardware store.

i removed mine in a matter of seconds. it's easy to steal just the torx head if you want.

You don't have to do that at all, I believe Iw as the person who made that post. It's quite simpmle, what you do is you get a flat head screwdriver and tension it on the back where the back plate meets the top piece, and tension it a bit until the little copper conduttor piece falls out.

I'll whip up a mspaint guide in a few secs.

eh, I was gunna do a guide but the picture is pretty self explaintory.

Get flat head, pry it up, take the little piece out, problem solved.

Whats interesting is that just some copper around a plastic base and a thingy (can't recall the world) makes it go off hahaha.

what do you mean by "all that"? unscrewing with a torx driver doesn't require any effort at all.

here is a image of a torx set, they usually have interchangeable heads.

you can find these at ANY hardware store. they are around $5-10 bucks, but you can easily open it, and steal the handle peice and the heads. or take the whole cases (i just stuffed one down my pants)

Woohoo! Prying it up worked! Saves me having to get some specialized tool. I'm not sure I would have known the copper coil was the sensor if you hadn't said something. Thanks for the fix!

Most people have the screw driver head that will fit the s3, but it's not a security one with the little hole. To solve the prob take a smaller flat head screw driver that can be twisted in the screw and it will snap off the little security piece in the middle of the screw. then just use a regular screw driver head that fits to remove it.

my friend used to melt the back ends of pen's. then stick it into w/e screw it needed.

that pretty much would make a bootleg screwdriver that should fit any screw shapes.

The problem with that is if you apply to much torque, it'd snap the pen it'd be worthless.

Order them online. Very simple.

Would there be any places that sell s3 keys rather than getting it online and waiting like a week?

Just snap the thread inside the screw using a normal screw driver then use the star shaped screw drivers. After that use some glue to glue the sensor to a shopping cart and then every time someone uses that shopping cart the alarm sounds Lol

just use a small screwdriver and snap off the pins inside the screws, then use a regular hex bit to remove the two screws.that's all you need to do, very simple.
