Spanner Screws

Our Tamper Proof line has expanded to include Spanner, or "Snake Eye" screws. Tamper Proof Spanner or "Snake Eye" security screws are installed using a spanner bit. Spanner Screws are commonly referred to as "Snake Eye" because of the two dot drive system. Spanner 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 and other public locations. Spanner screws can only be installed or removed with a spanner bit, which fits a pin into each of the screw's two drive holes. Since Spanner screws can only be installed or removed through spanner bits, they are very resistant to tampering.

Taps & Dies

Taps and dies are metal threading tools, tap and die sets are used to cut and restore internal and external threads precisely. A tap is used to form the female component of the assembly, as in the case of a nut or socket, a die is used on the male component, as in a screw or bolt. In other words, a Tap is used to create the internal threads in a hole and a die is used to make or repair external threading on a round rod, screw, or bolt. T handle wrenches are used with a tap to create or repair an internal thread. T Handles hold the end of a tap to provide extra leverage for hand tapping.
