Wheel-nut indicator

Posted on July 29, 2015

Wheel-Check is a loose wheel-nut indicator that can help operators identify a loose wheel nut with a simple visual inspection, according to the company.

When wheel nuts are properly torqued to specs, the Wheel-Checks are then placed on the wheel nuts in a uniformed pattern. Once a wheel nut has loosened, the Wheel-Check will become out of sequence and will be visible when the driver does his or her walk-around check.  

Wheel-Check is engineered to reduce the risk of wheel detachment accidents, lower maintenance costs by eliminating unnecessary re-torquing, and quickly identify a hot wheel possibly caused by bearing failure or brake drag, according to the company.
