Jimmy is one of our expert headerman. He is tasked with making our large diameter bolts. Here's a picture of him inspecting ½-13x2 Raptor™ head, Key-Rex® security bolts. They are heading to California to control copper theft. This is a repeat order from the customer, with some added features. We added the customer's name on the bolt, gave them a larger Raptor™ head, and changed their key code.
Heading this type of security screw is closer to a black art, than a science. It requires he adjust 7 sequential tools perfectly. Any miscalculation requires an adjustment…using wrenches 6 feet long. Yet, this part ran quickly and easily…a credit to what he has learned.
What Makes This Security Bolt an Effective Copper Theft Deterrent?
Heading this bolt is like trying to balance on the edge of a razor blade. Any mis-adjustment, and there's an explosion of tools, flying fragments, and a mangled mess of stainless. These look great. Our hats go off to Jimmy, who has grown into one of best security screw headerman in the world. If you need a BIG security screw with a lock keyway, he's the one who can do it.
