Based on how much theft is taking place in the oil and gas industry, I ( Bryce) knew we needed to come up with an anti-theft solution that's incredibly complex. Since we have the machines and capabilites to create a security nut no one else has, we gave it a try. To our surprise, the first prototype worked exceptionally well. With the help of engineer, Dienye Hart, (our International Sales Rep) the 2nd and 3rd prototypes turned out even better. 

The final product has important security features that can't be replicated without using the same machine that created the original key-code. A counterfeit wrench can't engage sufficiently to apply the required breakout torque. For more detailed security information and sizing, please visit the Pipeline Security Nut website.
