I am considering buying a Lamassu Bitcoin ATM machine.

The small machine is apparently "grab resistant". Does anyone know how the grab resistant mechanism works? Are there hooks on the back?

  • The page you linked to says "Internal steel vault is securely bolted to wall, stand, or countertop". Is that what you're looking for? Jan 8, 2014 at 19:20
  • That's getting there, yes! A picture showing the bolting would be useful.

According to the website:

The machine will be smash and grab resistant. It is not meant for unattended or outdoor use, but it will have thick metal mounting plates, a dual locking system and an internal strong box for the cash.

According to this site:

The outer casing is a custom steel case made in Portugal. There’s a Protec cylinder lock holding it closed. Inside, there’s yet another steel case and another Protec lock. The tablet that runs the software has no open ports, and all outgoing connections are via https.


For either machine securely attach them to the surface they are sitting on. Bolt to the counter in a manner that can not be disassembled without opening the machine. For flow mounted machines secure to a concrete floor with large anchor bolts into the floor.
