2-hole screws installation guidance
The two holes can be drilled at different distances between centres, so we advise purchasing the screws and corresponding bits / drivers from the same supplier.
2-hole screws are more prone to cam-out than other security screws such as Pin Hex security screws. Users should also be aware that when tightening the screw the drive bits are prone to bending or breaking after prolonged use, so we recommend purchasing additional drive bits as backup.
