Sentinel Button Security Machine Screw

Sentinel security screws – button head

Button head sentinel screws have a unique head which can only be turned clockwise, so once securely tightened, they cannot be removed without drilling out.

Installed using only a standard cross head or pozi driver, sentinel security screws are quick to install with power drivers or standard screw drivers, so are a popular choice for installers and for large volume applications.

  • 1-way permanent security fixing
  • Tamper-proof for use where maintenance is not required
  • Button head security screw
  • Suitable for high torque applications
  • Good for use with power drivers
  • Typically used in prisons, public facilities and toilets and for industrial roofing

The drive of the Sentinel security screws offers medium security resistance against vandals and thieves at a relatively low cost.
The Sentinel drive is an adaptation of the original Nettlefolds ‘Pozi’ drive, designed to provide a secure and permanent fixing.   With high resistance to cam-out, Sentinel screws are a preferred choice for applications requiring high volume, labour intensive work.

Sentinel button machine screws can be used with security Wave Nuts, Shear Nuts, Kinmar Reusable Nuts, Kinmar Permanent Nuts, 4-Hole Nuts or Pin Torx Barrel Nuts for added security.

Available from stock in zinc plate, with other sizes and materials available to order.
