These Forgefix Torx Pin self-tapping Security Screws are a specialist screw allowing tightening and release with the unique Torx insert bit. They offer a specialist security fixing in areas where a conventional screw would be used. Their countersunk heads are designed to sink flush with substrates to leave a smooth surface finish. The screws are made from stainless steel for increased resistance to corrosion.
Can be used securing ironmongery applications that are left to open access, such as padbolts and T-hinges. Also ideal for use in public sanitary applications for securing toilet roll holders and similar fixtures.
Stainless Steel does not corrode, rust or stain with water as ordinary steel does, but despite the name it is not fully stain-proof, most notably under low oxygen, high salinity, or poor circulation environments. Stainless steel is used where both the properties of steel and resistance to corrosion are required.
The Torx Pin head is based on the Torx head design but has a pin in the centre. This means that the insert bit used for tightening has a female insert offering both increased torque and security.
Self-tapping thread screws have a perfectly designed thread pitch which self-threads into a pre-drilled pilot hole. The thread size is larger than the hole size meaning it cuts a thread into the substrate.
