It's too long and I can cut it down which is no big deal assuming it's really threaded all the way to the head. The catch though is I'm seeing packs of 100 for about 25 pounds which is probably about $35 US... If I can get Jason to bring them with me I could EASILY sell them!!!! Or if I can get my Asian contact to source them even cheaper just more money in my pocket!!!

Now that I'm seeing how insanely difficult they are to find, I really think I could buy in packs of 100 and make a bit of pocket change off these things!!! I mean crap, if that dude above is getting $5 a bolt!!! You know it's cause he's the only game in town which actually seems to be the case!

These aren't for a bicycle seat either, they're for securing something much more valuable that's really easy to steal currently!

Oh... and....
Seeing as how they are so hard to find and the actual security socket to remove them is relatively easy to acquire, it sounds like you are making it more difficult on the owner/manufacturer than it would be on those with devious intentions. Perhaps an alternate fastening solution would be better?

If someone wants it, no matter what they're going to get it. I'm just wanting to stop the casual thief looking to jack $500-1500 worth of goods by removing 2 bolts. Nothing short of welding the bolts and even then I could still steal it if I really wanted to is going to work. These bolts would be the same as a bike lock... If I want your bike and it's locked up, I just need the right tool and it's still gonna be mine. But chances are, when I stumble on your bike, I probably won't have the right tool on me. That's all I'm trying to do...

I completely understood where you were going with it Khris, but I guess it just seems to me that the cost vs benefit isn't there in this case. There had got to be a cheaper and just as effective way to keep honest people honest.

I don't think it's the keeping the honest people honest, it's about keeping the dishonest people at bay!

Maybe if we had the slightest clue what you wanted to use them for we would agree on it.
