Solar Security, Westminster: giant screws

Solar Security

“Solar Security” burglar alarm, City of Westminster • Nice bold old-school type plus giant screws, and it looks like the bulb has fallen off (as I doubt that’s a vintage solar cell). • Spotted: Henrietta Street, City of Westminster, London, WC2, England, 2011 • Politics: In the Conservative constituency of Cities of London and Westminster

  1. 2nd generation of this type. They’re not giant screws, they’re rubber blanking grommets to cover the holes there is a nut right at the back of the box, so you would need a very long box spanner to undo the nuts, Solar and Enright Security had special spanners made. Strobes were not used in Solar Security days so it must have been added on later.
