Comes in bags of 100 pieces!
Wheel-Checks are a loose wheel nut indicator that can identify a loose wheel nut with a simple visual inspection. When the wheel nuts are properly torqued to specs, the Wheel-Checks are then placed on the wheel nuts in a uniform pattern. If a wheel nut has loosened, the Wheel-Check will become out of sequence. It will be visible when the driver does his walk around check. The wheel can then be serviced.
10 Reasons to Use Wheel-Checks
. Provides a simple, visual means of confirming proper wheel torque in seconds.
. Reduce your risk of wheel detachment accidents (protect the public, help prevent property and load damage).
. Lower your maintenance costs by eliminating unnecessary re-torquing.
. Quickly identify a hot wheel possibly caused by bearing failure or brake drag.
. Decrease equipment downtime.
. Facilitates official roadside inspections.
. Clearly visible at night and in bad weather (rain, snow, muddy conditions).
. Easy to install.
. Costs only a few dollars per wheel.
. Pays for itself in just one avoided re-torque procedure.
Wheel-Checks are plastic with a temperature sensitive polymer finish. They come in bags of 100 pieces in High Visibility Green or High Visibility Red. They are also heat sensitive. If there is a binding brake or seized bearing, the heat is transferred through the stud and nut. If this temperature exceeds 248 deg., the Wheel-Check will start to blister around the circumference and eventually start to distort. for accuracy, please check nut size with a socket wrench. Wheel-Checks are reusable.
