    I saying this for extra clarity because almost nobody I talked to understood the difference. Torx and torque are two different things. A torque screwdriver is designed to break free at a specified tension. This prevents you from breaking the head off the screw and being literally screwed. Basically it won't let you go beyond the needed tension to successfully install the mount.

    A torque driver also insures the screws are all set to the same tension, getting screws in Ins side tighter than the other will put the PL mount out of square and could cause focus issues. It also keeps you for over tightening the screws.
    Cheers
