Security Nuts

What are Security Nuts ?

Security Nuts are nuts that have as part of their integral design a security feature that makes them impossible or extremely difficult to remove using standard tools.

There are basically two types of security nuts to choose from;

One way security nuts include; shear nuts, Kinmar anti tamper security nuts and Scroll nuts (there is also a two way version of the Kinmar nut - call for details: t: 01273 475500).

Two-way security nuts such as Scroll nuts require a special security driver tool to screw them on to a matching male thread, the same special driver tool is used to remove them when their release is required, while the Tufnut is a clever two way anti tamper nut which can be installed with a conventional spanner and the aid of a spare Tufnut.


What problems do Security Nuts solve ?

Security nuts protect any item that is secured with a nut, from theft by anyone using a standard spanner or socket spanner set or even attempted removal with pliers.

Who uses Security Nuts ?

Security nuts can be used by domestic or commercial users, by Public Authorities, in fact by anyone who has security concerns for any of their property that is fastened with nuts.
