With the cost of an installed road sign in the area of $100 or more, you cannot afford the loss of even one more sign. The added risk of injuries and lawsuits makes it necessary to use reasonable care and judgement to protect both yourself and the public. Secure problem signs and important STOP signs now, before you have a problem.

Here's How It Works

Tufnut security nuts should be used with a standard CARRIAGE BOLT - or our special round headed TUFBOLT ™ security bolt, which can be used on drilled metal surfaces.

  1. Install TUFNUT® 2 finger tight
  2. Install TUFNUT® 2 so it's a half turn (1/2 turn) from 1 and tighten or loosen by inserting wrench or vicegrip between TUFNUTS® then turning both nuts.
  3. Remove TUFNUT® 2 leaving property secured

The angular sides of the TUFNUT make it impossible to grasp, while its case-hardened surface stops all other hand tools. By increasing the risk of discovery, TUFNUT forces the thief to leave your property where it belongs.

TUFBOLT SECURITY BOLTS - V-TB25 - The TUFNUT should be used with either our TUFBOLT security bolt or a standard CARRIAGE BOLT. The TUFBOLT is designed for use with drilled metal signs, and has no square neck beneath its round head, so it won't damage the sign face upon fastening. 5/16" x 2 1/2" length.

TUFBOLT WASHERS - V-TBW31 - Protect the sign face from abrasion, while also resisting the turning of the TUFBOLT. 5/16" ID x 1" OD - White Nylon.

TUFNUT WASHERS - V-TW31 - are designed to fit beneath the broad base of the TUFNUT to protect surfaces from abrasion. 5/16" ID x 1 1/2" OD - White Nylon.

Originally developed for mounting signs and reflector/delineators on round or "U"-shaped posts as illustrated above, the unique Cherry-Mates are readily adaptable to many other difficult applications.

Intended primarily as a replacement for nuts and bolts, Cherry-Mates offer the following very distinct advantages:

VIBRATION PROOF - won't shake loose.
TAMPER PROOF - smooth, low profile heads on both ends.
CONTROLLED CLAMP-UP - clamps tightly, without crushing.
NON CRITICAL HOLES - no close tolerance drilling necessary.
LABOR SAVING - installed by one man with a simple squeeze of a hand riveter.
