    I don't run tamper-resistant screws on any of my lights and have not had any problems (knocks on wood) But I should probably switch em all out to something a lil harder to remove.

    Look at McMaster Carr under Security Screws. Here's a few they have:

    Nah. $300 Baja’s on mine for 2.5 years and I don’t think anyone’s thought of stealing them.

    In CO, people steal catalytic converts at trailheads. I am not afraid of the common thief stealing them while I am at walmart. I am afraid of offroaders doing that.

    Steal my Nilights! They are on their third truck and still going strong. Lmao
    I frequently do business with McMaster-Carr. If they don’t have something listed as available in stainless, ask because they probably do, and if not they will make them. Great company.

    When you order your tamper proof screws don’t forget to order the matching tool!
