    Having to blank off several socket outlets in rented property. To discourage tenants from opening up and reconnecting sockets I want to use security screws to fix the blanking plates. Any ideas where I can get some security type M3.5 accessory screws?

    I did have a look at RS but could only find 12mm long threads - bound to be too short for some backboxes.

    Maybe tap them out to M4, you'll have a much wider range of tamperproof machine screw options at that size.
