Tamper Proof Screws

Stop opportunist thieves in their tracks with tamper proof screws

What are Tamper Proof Screws?

tamper proof screws - pin torx exampleTamper proof screws are a type of security screw with a head which features a special type of Driver Slot which requires a matching Driver Tool to do the screws up or remove them again.

There are several forms of tamper proof screws available including; Pin Torx (also known as "star drive screws", "6-lobe pin screws" and "Resistorx Screws"), Pin Hex, and Two Hole Screws (also called "Pig Nose Screws" or "Snake Eye Screws"), among others.

The fact that these screws cannot be undone with a conventional Phillips head or Flat Bladed type screwdriver, means that anything secured with them is automatically protected against the opportunist thief or vandal.



Here are just a few examples of popular uses for tamper proof screws:

 -  On display cases to prevent unauthorised access to the contents
 -  To secure trade or building signage and other things such as security lighting fixed
     to the outside of buildings
 -  For security applications such as securing window bars in position
 -  To protect mains electrical sockets against tampering
 -  To secure Commemorative Plaques and Notices to buildings, gravestones, etc.
 -  To protect Vehicle Number Plates against theft and subsequent misuse
 -  To prevent tampering with safety equipment or playground equipment & structures
 -  To stop thieves raiding takings inside Vending Machines

Tamper proof screws are available in a variety of sizes and are generally available from stock, ready for next day delivery.

Typically these screws are manufactured as standard from A2 grade stainless steel, making them ideal for indoor or outdoor applications.

Some screw types however are available in other materials and finishes, such as the tamper proof woodscrews, which are available in a hardened steel with a BZP (Bright Zinc Plated) finish.
