Acme Thread Security Screws Help Save a Million Dollars in Stolen Gas

Apr 25, 2017

Gas pumps are perfect targets for thieves. They’re unattended and open for skimmers and tampering. One gas distribution company called us after losing over a million dollars in stolen gas. The obvious solution is to replace the standard screws on the gas pumps with our Key-Rex® fasteners. It’s the least expensive solution, and possibly the best. The challenge is making them fit to the specification of a gas pump. Gas pumps are protected by sheet metal skins that get repeatedly opened. The security fasteners needed require a special thread called “acme”. The threads are wider, meant for continual opening and closing.  It took special tooling and knowledge to apply it to our Key-Rex® fasteners. We learned, because the customer needed it. Here’s a picture of some gas pump screws we recently made. They're coated with our special BryKote coating. The customer has ordered multiple times and reports our fasteners are working.
