The Wheelsafe Loose Nut Indicator provides a simple, visual means of confirming proper wheel torque in seconds. It reduces the risk of wheel detachment accidents and resulting load damage and can reduce insurance costs.

The WHEELSAFE Visual Loose Wheel Nut Indicator is brightly coloured pointer shaped device that fits tightly over the wheel nut and is positioned in a uniform pattern. It is designed to visually identify any movement of the nut, and/or excessive heating of the hub, due to dragging brakes, braking over use or tight bearings.

If the nut loosens, the WHEELSAFE Visual Loose Wheel Nut Indicator will move with it and out of the original uniform pattern, clearly indicating to the operator the need for intervention. In the event of brake drag, over use, or tight bearings, the WHEELSAFE Visual Loose Wheel Nut Indicator, at a temperature of approximately 123 degrees C [248 degrees F], will deform and change colour around the perimeter. Indicating excessive heat build up.

The WHEELSAFE Visual Loose Wheel Nut Indicator is manufactured from Heavy Duty Service Grade Polyethylene.

UV stabilised polymer provides dimensional stability and stops sunlight degradation.

The WHEELSAFE Visual Loose Wheel Nut Indicator can be cleaned using any of the available detergent solutions, or kerosene, and are

unaffected by road salts or petrochemicals.

The WHEELSAFE Visual Loose Wheel Nut Indicator default colour is safety yellow, although other colours can be provided to match
