SafeLugNuts is pleased to announce the American launch of Safetytrim, a revolutionary new British and precision engineered wheel nut management system for commercial vehicles. Full details are available at stand 5356 in Hall B.
What makes Safetytrim unique is that it is the only wheel nut management system in the world which both visibly indicates there is a loose wheel nut and more importantly holds that nut in place until re-torque when the vehicle returns to the workshop.
Each Safetytrim is moulded from high performance automotive polymers developed with Dupont which is highly resistant to heat and chemicals. With a chemical “memory” that allows it to revert back to its original shape, Safetytrim fits tightly once pushed over the nuts on each of a vehicle’s wheels. It is easy to fit and remove in a workshop.
It is a low-cost, quick fit solution to the chance of a wheel off. Once fitted, one for every wheel, it will help eradicate the problem of wheel nuts backing off. A single wheel loss will always be expensive for any business or organisation and not just in terms of load loss and delays or damage to the axle, but a fast rolling wheel can also cause damage to buildings and serious injury or death should it hit a person.
David Leeks for the company said: “Wheel safety is rightly acknowledged to be immensely important and everyone will be familiar with the fluorescent point tags seen on many trucks, but Safetytrim is far superior. It is easy to fit, looks good and is highly resilient to the demands asked of it. Not only does it clearly point out when a nut has begun to work itself loose, but more importantly it also stops the problem from getting worse.”
