Strange 3 point screws on ellipsoid projectors???

So I need to take the projector out of a broken ellipsoid housing and I notice that the screws holding them together is a strange 3 point star much like the mercedes emblem. Is that a special tool? Thanks people!!!

so just a heads up if anyone ever runs into these screws. I had the genius idea to slightly modify the star with my cutting wheel to make room for a flathead screwdriver. I then backed the screws out easily.
