Default Circular Screws??

How do you unscrew the screws that have a circle as the area to turn in? (circle means very little friction/traction so how do you turn it?) is there a special tool?

Lian Li Replacement Top Panel for PC-7/PC-6X Cases - Black Products Model: T-PC-6XB [T-PC-6XB] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

thats a replacement top for my Lian-Li case, but how can you even take the top off?

You have to break the rivets.

You re-rivet it with a new rivet and a rivet tool.

thanks for your help

looks like rivet tools/rivets are too expensive so I might pick one up

however, how do you break rivets?
