1"-8 ZAMAK 5 Zinc Alloy Trident Nut, Driver Size: 100TRI
Tanner Trident Nuts are suitable for providing tamper-resistant fastening
for a wide range of products using bolts, screws, or concrete and masonry
anchoring devices. Tanner Trident Nuts have been used extensively in
correctional institutions, hospitals, universities, universities, public
places, and retail stores to secure a variety of products including inmate
finitude, scaffolding electrical, and electronic equipment, computers, and
related equipment, traffic signs, park benches, outdoor play equipment and
consumer product displays. The Tanner Trident Nut is a tamper-resistant
internally threaded fastening device featuring a conical design that prevents
unauthorized removal. The nut has three indented slots of installation and
removal with the proper tool.
They are manufactured from ZAMAK 5 zinc alloy (AC41A). Zinc casting alloys
are durable and have good strength. They are lightweight, rust proof, and
corrosion resistant. Five year exposure trials showed no significant galvanic
corrosion attack on zinc alloys coupled to steel and other engineering metals.
No crevice corrosion is expected to occur in couples with polyethylene or
nylon. ZAMAK 5 has the highest impact strength of all the zinc based alloys.
Trident Nuts are tapped to strength of all the zinc based alloys. Trident Nuts
are tapped to standard bolt dimensions but can be tapped oversize to accept hot
dip galvanized fasteners. Their security can be enhanced by adding nylon
locking elements to the internal threads and/or by a full or partial recessing
of the nut below the surface of the work. Trident Nuts can be plated or color
dyed for a variety of applications.
Trident nuts consist of a one-piece unit made from ZAMAK 5 zinc alloy
featuring a tamper-resistant internally thread fastening device which features
a conical design that prevents unauthorized removal. The nut has three indented
slots for installation and removal by a proper tool.
