6 Lobe Pin TX Pan Thread Forming Security Screw

6 Lobe Pin TX Pan Thread Forming Security Screw

Supplied in zinc plated steel, 6 Lobe Pin TX Pan Thread Forming Screws are used primarily for plastics but can be used for metals.

They differ from self-tappers in that they do not remove any material to create the thread.

Offering medium security resistance against vandals and thieves at a relatively low cost, the vandal-resistant 6 Lobe drive required a special driver but can be removed if maintenance is required.

6-Lobe Pan Pin TX Thread Forming Screws offer reduced slippage or cam-out compared to the more common Phillips or 2-Hole drives, which in turn reduces the risk of damage to the drive tip, screw head or application.

They can also be referred to by other names including ‘Star Pin Drive’, ‘Tamper Torx®’, ‘Torx® Pin’, ‘Resistorx®’ and ‘6 Lobe Pin’, and can be used alongside a range of nuts for added security.

Available as standard in diameters from M2 to M4, with specials available to order in a range of diameters, lengths and sizes.

Please contact us with your requirements to further your enquiry.
