TR launches new 5-Lobe pin to help prevent crime

TR has launched a new 5- Lobe pin security fastener with the aim of preventing businesses from becoming victims of crime.

Paul Standing, Products Manager at TR Fastenings, said: “Opportunist thieves and vandals are always on the look out for an easy target so it’s vital that businesses have the right level of security to defend themselves and their property.”

“Our new 5-lobe pin fasteners provide a low-cost, long-lasting line of defence against intruders that could cut the amount of money businesses lose in thefts, damages, disruption and increased insurance premiums because of crime.”

The new 5-Lobe pin from TR Fastenings is the first complete range of security fasteners made from corrosion-resistant A4-70 stainless steel meaning that is is perfect for both internal and external applications. The fastener’s five-sectioned screw head means that it can only be undone by someone with specialist tools, preventing its removal by an opportunist criminal. Additionally, it is the perfect product for outdoor use, in particular marine, health and medical sectors because of its non-reactive qualities.

A report by the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) in October 2019 suggested that there are 3.8 million traditional crimes against businesses in the UK each year, the vast majority of them robberies, burglaries, thefts and acts of vandalism – an average of more than seven every minute, with each costing businesses an average of £3,340.

The 5-Lobe pin is rated as a level 2 enhanced security product and can be supplied with button or countersunk heads in either machine screws or self tapping screws.
