Security Screws

About our Security Machine Screws

Our Security Machine Screws all have a pin located in the middle of the drive to prevent removal with standard tools. There is a choice of Pin Hexagon or Pin Resistorx 6 Lobe drive in all head designs except Pan Head, which are the two-dot snake eye drive design. All are available in a stainless-steel finish.

Why use Security Screws?

Security Screws are simply a variation on our normal types of screws but with a tamper-proof head. They are also sometimes known as Anti-Theft Screws (or Anti-Tamper Screws). Whilst the body of the screw looks identical to others it is a one-way screw: meaning the head has a pattern that cannot be undone with a Slotted, Phillips or Pozidrive screwdriver or bit.
