    Wall clock that can be securely screwed to wall 3rd Dec 17 at 11:00 PM
    Where I work our wall clocks seem to keep go "missing" (ie. being nicked).

    I'm having trouble finding one that can be securely screwed to a wall rather than just hung on a hook. Any ideas?

    Have to be at least 30cm diameter, preferably one of those ones that is kept accurate by a radio signal. Nothing fancy, black numbers on white preferably.

    Dont know of any to be honest.
    If you used a bit ingenuity you could bodge something up though.
    Get a piece of flat metal with hole in it like this
    https://www.toolstation.com/shop/Construction+Materials/d210/Builders+Metalwork/sd2797/Mending+Plate/p30606

    Fasten it to the 'hook' behind the clock with a small nut & bolt so that the rest of the flat strip shows above the clock.
    Then screw the flat strip to the wall.
    Might not look pretty but will stop somebody nicking your clock.
    Unless of course they have a screwdriver !!!!

    At the risk of stating the blindingly obvious...would hanging it much higher up solve the problem?
