The Torx drive of Torx Tamper Proof Self Drilling (TEK-3) Pan Head Security Screws are also known as Torx 6-lobe, or Torx with Pin.
Tamper proof security screws, or Tamper resistant security screws, are distinguished by having an unconventional drive, making tampering with the screw more difficult, if not impossible without the matching driver. Security Screws are used for securing materials from being tampered with, such as gutters, license plates, grills in jails, schools, boats and cars. They are also used in food prep and processing areas. You will often see security screws used in bathroom stalls, particularly toilet partitions and other public locations. Security screws in this selection are grade 410 stainless steel, which prevents rusting and is corrosion resistant.
