Security Torx

Tamper Proof Security Torx Screws are also often called Pin Torx Screws, Star Drive Pin Screws or Resistorx security screws, but whatever you call them, they are a great product for high torque applications or for use with powered screwdrivers ...and they`re available from stock.

Being two-way screws, tamper proof torx screws are installed with a matching security torx driver tool and can be removed later (with a matching driver) if required, making them a great choice when you`re looking for a versatile anti-tamper screw.

Tamper proof Security Torx screws in Stainless Steel, have been used here, to prevent tampering with the newly built "Connors Court" community leisure and games court.

This structure has been built below the impressive white chalk cliffs on the undercliffe walk along the Brighton coastline where use of stainless steel fixings was essential given to the close proximity to the sea.

Security Torx - Matching Driver Tools

These "Two-way" screws require a matching Security Torx Driver Tool (such as a one piece Pin Torx Security Screwdriver, Torx Security Bit or the "L" shaped Security Torx Keywrench) to install or remove them.

The Security Driver size required will depend on the size and head type of screw chosen, however the driver size is clearly shown on the screws selection chart.
