Tamper Proof Nuts
Security Nuts Designed to Resist Gripping Devices
Security nuts feature a tapered diameter, making the nuts resistant to gripping devices. These nuts are designed to be extremely difficult (if not impossible) to remove without a special socket or heavy tools. Varieties include nuts that can be installed or removed with unconventional bits, or ones that break away on installation requiring a grinder or both extractor to remove after installing.
Security nuts are commonly used with driver-less fasteners or fasteners with an unconventional drive style for a secure assembly. If the nut is not easily accessible, the fastener assembly will be harder to be tampered with. Security nuts are commonly used in public outdoor applications including campsites, parks, playgrounds, benches, cars and roof top tents. Stainless steel security nuts are perfect for this type of application since they are rust and corrosion resistant.
