Shear Bolt - Button Head Security Bolt - Stainless Steel (A2)

Shear Bolts in Stainless Steel available now, from stock, in a limited range of sizes. Manufactured from A2 grade stainless steel, Shear Head Bolts are ideal for indoor or outdoor applications. 

Shear Bolts provide a permanent security fastening where high security is required. Sometimes called breakaway bolts or snap off bolts as the hexagonal drive head is snapped off once the bolt is tightened to the required torque. Shear Bolts are not suitable for applications where maintenance will require the removal of fastenings.

Shear Bolts don`t require any special installation tools as they are installed with a standard box spanner or socket spanner and once fully tightened the hexagonal drive head is designed to shear off, leaving the bolt securely in place, which is then extremely difficult to remove.
