Tanner Bolt & Nut Corp

Break-Away Nuts

Break-Away nuts are suitable for applications where removal of a fixture is not intended and when prevention of tampering is important. After tightening to the proper torque, the hex head breaks away leaving a conical shaped tamper resistant nut. They are used extensively in correctional institutions, hospitals, schools, public places and retail stores to secure a variety of products. Break-Away nuts are manufactured from ZAMAC 5 zinc alloy and are now available also in 18.8 stainless steel. The nuts are tapped to standard bolt dimensions and are also available tapped oversize for hot dip galvanized fasteners. Tanner Bolt & Nut Corp. specializes in providing security solutions to the fence contractor.
