IRVINE, Calif. — Wheel-Checks debuted today new custom colored loose wheel nut indicators that can quickly identify a loose wheel nut with a simple visual inspection.

wheel checksWhen the 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. It will then be visible when the drivers conduct their walk-around checks. It is then the driver’s responsibility to call maintenance and have the wheel thoroughly serviced.

Wheel-Checks are also heat sensitive. If there is a binding brake or seized bearing, the heat is transferred through the stud and nut. Once the temperature exceeds 120 degrees C (248º F), the Wheel-Check will start to blister around the circumference and eventually start to distort. A wheel bearing failure can have grave consequences if it occurs while driving at highway speeds and the vehicle loses a wheel. This is why the wheel bearings should always be inspected.

The Wheel-Checks:

  • Provide a simple, visual means of confirming proper wheel torque in seconds
  • Decrease equipment down-time
  • Cost only a few dollars per wheel
  • Are easy to Install
  • Feature custom sizes and color upon request

For almost two centuries, Wheel-Check’s mission has been to create a commitment to safety which means safer roads for the public, drivers and environment. Truck wheel detachment is a growing problem causing a large number of very serious accidents, with some resulting in the unfortunate and tragic loss of life.
