These are a type of tamper resistant screwdrivers.

But wait! There's more!

Triwings are actually off center like a 3 point pin-wheel.
But another type of "Triwing" appeared several years back (I think with Nintendo) and it is the other type with 3 points coming out from 1 center.
+ I've included a picture of both below.

But be wary when ordering them by phone and trying to describe them because;
-Some people have called the Tampruf (Tri-Groove) a Triwing, which is wrong.
-I've also heard people call Triangles a Triwing, but the Triangle is unmistakeable ▲.

I can recall seeing Triangles on the Nintendo Gameboy (original) in the early 1990's.

Here's another site that shows images of many tamper resistant drivers, and have others available that aren't shown either.
But they retail professional quality driver$, not the cheap ones that break/strip after just a few uses.

And just a side note: I recall the IBM T1 (its a super small Torx) screwdriver for IBM laptop repair, and it cost $100.00 USD from IBM back in the early 1990's, and now you can find a T1 in a dollar store, or similar less expensive store.
