How socket shear bolts work
Security shear bolts, (breakaway bolts, snap off bolts) offer a secure fixing solution for applications needing the highest level of security.
Socket shear bolts are fastened using a standard 6mm A/f insert bit, key wrench or screwdriver. The conical shaped socket portion attached to the head snaps off once fully tightened to the breaking torque (18/25 nm, leaving a slim profile plain head with no drive with which to remove the bolt.
No security tools are required, however the bolt is irremovable once fastened in place, so these fixings are not suitable for applications requiring maintenance.
Socket shear bolts are suitable for higher torque applications, in high-security environments where there will be no requirement to remove them, once fastened.
