Am I the only one that was super annoyed by having to find the super tiny torx head to remove these door jam plates?

Yes, I did it- I went to Home Depot and replaced them with good ol' American standard screws:

#4 x 5/8 in Pan Head Phillips Screws $1.98

I checked the clearance by opening and shutting the door.........no scratches, no rubbing on the chrome door plate.

PS- If the chrome-on-black annoys you, you can always paint the heads black with a magic marker!

(The previous owner had used the wrong tool on the tiny screws and destroyed most of the torx shape)

Innovative, for sure. Just curious...did you also replace the screws on the door plates as well? Just for uniformity...my OCD wouldn't tolerate them being different. :grin:
