What are Anti-tamper fixings ?

These are fastenings that protect goods and property from thieves using conventional tools such as spanners and screwdrivers to undo threaded fixings.

anti tamper fixings - security screwsWithin this group are security screws with anti-tamper heads including:

- Clutch Head security screws

- Pin Torx anti-tamper screws (also known as; Resistorx)

- Pin Hex tamper resistant screws

- Twin Hole screws

Clutch Head screws are one way security screws that are installed with a standard screwdriver, but once installed cannot be removed again.

The other screws mentioned above such as the Pin Torx screws, etc. are "two way screws" which require a matching security driver tool to install or remove them.

- Special security enclosures such as Armour Rings and NoGo Enclosures which convert the head of a standard screw or bolt, or a standard nut into a security fixing.


Where are Anti-tamper fixings used?

The range of applications for anti-tamper fixings is virtually limitless, which is why they are in widespread use by domestic and commercial users as well as by the police, military and public sector organisations.

Typical uses include securing; metal fencing, park benches, playground equipment, fittings in prisons or secure medical establishments, retail shop fittings, electronic products and lots more. 

Why use Anti-tamper fixings?

There are many reasons for using anti-tamper fixings, including:

  1. Often, they are the only practical solution – they take up little or no space when they are used – which may be a requirement for where they are being fitted
  2. Discrete in appearance – as an example, using a chain and ground anchor to secure a park bench would be glaringly out of place aesthetically – as well as being a trip hazard
  3. Economical to use - they are an inexpensive security product
  4. Dead easy to use and once fitted, require no maintenance
  5. Nowadays, more than ever, thieves will steal anything that has any value, particularly when the value is in the material itself such as; steel, copper, aluminium or other metals.

Conventional fixings offer thieves little or no challenge as they can be removed in seconds. Ai-tamper fixings however will at least slow them down (increasing their risk of being caught in the act) or more likely, prevent the theft o r tampering entirely. Anti-tamper fixings are the tireless foot soldiers in the war against crime –strong, dependable and versatile.


Which are the best type of Anti-tamper fixings for your application ?

If you are looking for a permanent fixing, a "One-way" anti-tamper fixing will be a good choice, but if the fixings need to be removed for any reason at some future date, choose one of the "Two-way" fixings.

If you require a security screw that is unique to you, speak to us about our Solok range of customer unique Anti-tamper Screws. These "Two-way" security fixings require a matching security driver to install or remove them, but each customer is allocated a unique head pattern which is registered for their use only, so no one else will have access to the security tool and your installation is therefore safe.
