Tufnut - Type 1 Security Nut - BZP Steel

Tufnut Security Nuts are tamper resistant nuts which are simple in concept and practical in application.

Manufactured from Hardened Steel, with a Bright Zinc Plated finish, Tufnut security nuts are easily installed with standard tools such as a spanner or adjustable wrench, in conjunction with an extra Tufnut. Tufnut security nuts were developed to provide an effective but highly affordable anti-theft and vandalism solution. The sloping nut design makes it impossible to grip the nut with standard tools, once installed.

Once installed the nut is very difficult to remove without the aid of a spare Tufnut (SEE HOW TUFNUTs WORK - click on the Read More tab for images, etc).

The Tufnut Type 1 Security Nut in BZP Steel, features a square format design and is available in M6, M8 and M10 sizes from stock.

an M12 size hexagonal version of the nut is also available from stock - see Type 2 Tufnuts.

Two-Way Tufnuts are installed or removed with a standard Box Spanner used in conjunction with a spare Tufnut
