Because Bryce Fastener has been a security screw specialist for 25 years, we've been exposed to alarming stories where security screws have been compromised.
Below are a few examples;
- Prisoners were hiding drugs and knives behind wall plates. They had the security bits and the guards did not. Bryce Fastener sold security bits to the prison and now the guards have the bits and the prisoners do not.
- $20,000.00 worth of digital light projectors we're stolen over a long weekend from a university. The projectors were secured with traditional security screws. Bryce supplied Key-Rex® screws and no thefts have occurred in the last 7 years.
- Stereos secured with traditional security screws were taken from a retail store. The store sold the same security bits they used to secure their stereos with. All the theives had to do was steal the bits, unfasten the stereos and make their heist. Our high security screws were experimented with and finally used throughout the whole chain.
- $40,000.00 worth of computers were stolen from a hospital and important patient data was lost. Key-Rex® was implemented to halt future loss.
- White Sands nuclear facility was losing secrets. Our security screws now secure it.
- A cable TV company in South America began with a 2,000 piece screw order from us 8 years ago to secure problem boces placed on public sidewalks. They have ordered over 2,000,000 screws since for additional usages.
- Government license plates came up missing in Michigan after 9/11. Due to budget constraints, the government did not implement Key-Rex® and the thefts continue.
- A lottery company found out thier slot machines had been compromised after a number of extra large payouts. Our security screws have prevented no further compromises.
- ATM machines secured with standard security screws were taken. Our screws now secure them with no reported breaches since.
- One of the biggest internet companies ordered our products before they went public. They continue to order Bryce Fastener's.
The alarm is as big as the risk. When someone can walk into a small town hardware store and buy security bits, tamper-proof screw users should be alarmed.
