Tamper “proof” screws pool on Flickr

Selection of images from tamper-'proof' screws Flickr pool.
I have a little box in the top drawer of my workbench that I think of as a kind of miniature trophy room. Every time I successfully remove a tamper-resistant, “security,” or other PITA fastener, I toss it in the box. Last week it occurred to me that this might be a fun habit to share with the rest of the web. To that end, and with the gracious assistance of Flickr user Tom Magliery, I present the Tamper ‘proof’ screws and fasteners pool. If you’re Flickr-friendly and have trophies of your own to share, please join us!
