The 3.5mm Raised Countersunk Electrical Screw is the standard screw used to fix socket or switch plates to their back boxes.

The standard slotted screws supplied with electrical sockets and switch plates are installed with a standard flat bladed screwdriver, but there are many instances where an organisation may want to prevent unauthorised access to or tampering with the electrical wiring within the switch or socket boxes.

Replacing the standard screws with security screws offers a simple and cost effective way to stop unauthorised access to or tampering with the electrical wiring.

There are basically 3 types of anti tamper security screw that can be used to protect your electrical switches or 13 amp sockets;


The most vertsatile type of electrical security screw is the Security Torx range which are available in lengths from 12mm to 75mm, so there`s no problem if you need a long screw to reach into the back box threaded fixing socket.
