The bash guard is 5 mm thick, and the screws are flush. The screws we use are hollow drilled so they can shear off in case of an overload. These bolts prevent damage to the frame. Order your spare bolts here: M6x11 SS Hollow Bolts two spare bolts are already included.

Most of the bike frames nowadays are designed to take the loads introduced by a Taco Bashguard or Crash Plate; nevertheless, you should consider with your frame manufacturer whether your frame is approved for our Crashplate or not.
