Loosening wheels

Conventional wheel nuts used on heavy vehicles loosen. This unfortunate and long-standing truth has resulted in wheels dislodging which can cause traffic accidents involving property damage, personal injuries and, in the worst case, fatalities. Although many drivers have not experienced wheel detachment, the problem may be more common and serious than most people realize, see statistics.

Even when loose wheel nuts do not lead to dislodged wheels, they are still costly for the owner of the vehicle. Everyday operations are negatively affected by loose wheel nuts through increased operating costs as well as decreased overall delivery efficiency and productivity levels.

The new Nord-Lock wheel nut offers a simple and cost effective solution for wheel nut loosening.
