Raptor™ button heads replace the need for a washer and will grip 15-20% better than a standard security screw. These solve a security flaw most aren’t aware of found in regular button head security screws. Button heads, (being smaller in diameter) encourage the use of a washer to “spread the load.” Unfortunately, a washer raises the side wall of the head, allowing wrenches to grip. As a result, washers and lock washers should never be used with security screws. Raptor™ button head security screws solve this problem by both spreading the load and locking the fastener. The bigger Raptor™ head also allows the use of a bigger diameter driver for higher torque. These three advantages make the Raptor™ button head the best holding security screw on the market.
The button Raptor™ head works well on high tensile applications such as bridges. It’s also exceptional for hurricane protection, fencing, security bars, and metal buildings.
