High security barrel nuts and sex bolts

The security drive has a patented, rounded, design with varying angles and radiuses that resist against grips such as pliers. Manufactured by the patent holder in the UK.
A special security wave tool is required to fasten this fixing, which can be stamped and registered with a customer specific reference number, to enable usage to be fully traced to users. Distribution of the fixing tool is limited to manufacturers and installers who have purchased the screws, with a valid registration number.
Under no circumstances will tools be sold separately to ‘non-account’ customers.
