6 Lobe Pin TX Countersunk Security Sleeve Anchor

6 Lobe Pin TX Security Screws offer medium security resistance against vandals and thieves at a relatively low cost, and offer advantages such as reduced slippage (cam-out), better torque and less risk of damage to the drive tip, screw head or application.

They may also be referred to by other names including Star Pin Drive®, Tamper Torx®, Torx® Pin, Resistorx® and 6 Lobe Pin.

They can also be used with Pin TX Barrel Nuts, Wave nuts, Shear Nuts and more for added security.

Requiring a special driver bit, the fixing of these anchors are relatively straightforward – drilling a suitably sized hole and clearing away any residual dust, before inserting the anchor, tightening the screw and allowing the anchor sleeve to expand to ensure a tight fit.

They are ideal for concrete or brick, and they can be removed if maintenance is required.

Available as standard from Fastenright in Stainless Steel, in diameters ranging from M6 to M10 and a number of lengths.

Non-standard sizes and materials are available to order as specials, including custom parts made to drawings.
