Occasionally we want to make sure a screw will not work loose or can’t be removed for security reasons. Here are a
few options available to the average woodworker.
screws are available with heads that can only be used to insert
the screw. The reverse side of the socket on the head has been removed
to prevent a screwdriver’s head from grabbing on anything.
– Special two-part wood/metal epoxies are available that can be used
in a pilot hole to firmly lock a screw in place.
Teeth – Special screws with barbed or serrated teeth are
available to prevent a screw from backing out of a hole.
Head – After the screw is properly seated used a drill bit to
remove the sockets from the screws head.
