Need help finding special headed screws

I need some screws with some sort of special head to mount my amp and sub with. Right now I'm just using phillips head screws but I start school wednesday and don't want to have to worry about them getting stolen. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Try some self-tapping screws that don't have a Phillips or flat head on them. They should have them at your hardware store where it's just a hex head. Or if you can drop some money on this, try some security fasteners.

Self tappers just allow you to drill into metal using only the screw instead of having to 'tap' a smaller hole with a drill bit before drilling the screw in.

Oh. That's what I'm using right now. But I want something more secure than that.

Go to K&K Hardware in Bettendort and ask for screws that take a square head or go on only one way. They have them. May need driver for them.

You can get security fasteners in many types ,torx,allen,and either of the two with a center raised pin which requires a special bit to install and remove (all of which are available in stainless as well) .Try McMaster-Carr I use them at work for all of my hardware needs.

Self tappers are usually 5/16, Spax screws have a head that is like the torx but does not match. If someone wants it that bad they will have the tools.... Use some JBweld and call it done.
