What is the best tool to remove security (one way) screws from window bars?
The device I bought for $15 at Home Depot just slides off the screws and
is basically useless. (It sort of resembles a miniature lug nut wrench
with a little washing machine agitator inside. It is used with a power
drill.) Suggestions appreciated.

If I just have a couple to remove, I use a small set of
visegrips. Where it is convenient, I also have used a cut off
blade on a dremel tool to make a slot, then use a straight
screwdriver. I will send a guy around to grind all the slots,
then we go around with a drill driver to remove the screws.
That works well when you have a lot of them to do.
