What is the wheel check indicator?
Wheel Check Indicator/Wheel Nut indicator/Wheel check collar
is a loose wheel nut indicator that is used extensively by the
transport industry as an enhancement and development of fleet safety roadworthiness
procedures, daily walk-round inspection and defect reporting and scheduled
maintenance requirements. Its use allows accurate monitoring for loose wheel nuts and helps
prevent wheel hub damage or the loss of a road wheel should a wheel nut loosen.
An additional safety feature of the Wheel Check Indicator is its heat sensitivity, when
higher than normal operational temperature are reached, the Wheel Check Indicator is designed
to melt indicating an imminent bearing failure or braking issues.
Where to use the wheel check indicator?
The Wheel Check Indicator is fixed to the wheel nut by gripping the six corners of the hexagon
of the wheel nut. When the wheel is being fitted out the Wheel Check Indicator pointers should
be aligned and set in a recognizable pattern. Should a wheel nut loosen off, the Wheel Check
Indicator has no option but to move with the nut and so break the recognizable pattern that was
set, thus indicating the wheel nut has begun to rotate and therefore to loosen.
This is universal type which fitted for various trucks/trailers/tank truck etc.,
Suitable Truck models: Heavy truck/ Trailer/Bus/Dangerous goods transport
How does wheel check indicator works?
What size, range and color of wheel check indicator?
Wheel Check Indicator is manufactured from Polyethylene. This special grade is suitable for
heavy-duty applications such as high load urban duty cycle service or where full axle loading
is the norm.Wheel Check Indicator is designed to distort and melt at a vehicle hub/stud
temperature of 125 degrees centigrade.
The material used is a virgin polymer and is UV stabilized. It is therefore dimensionally stable.
The polymer does not degrade in sunlight. Wheel Check Indicator can be cleaned using any of the
available vehicle cleaning agents, detergent solutions or paraffin.
Wheel Check Indicator is not attacked by road salts or petrochemicals. The pointer being large,
it is highly visible even when coated with road or operational grime.
It is recommended that the initial fitting out of the vehicle is done in the course of scheduled
maintenance or during a roadworthiness inspection or when a wheel nut torque check is
*The wheel nuts must be torqued to the recommended value before the Wheel Check Indicators
The Wheel Check Indicator should be a tight slide fit onto the wheel nut without the need for tools
or any other assistance. This is also the case when there is a need to remove them.
Fit the Wheel-check collar so that the raised rim of the collar is outermost from the wheel nut
washer, or the profile of the wheel. This eases removal by giving a finger purchase on the collar
rim of the Wheel Check Indicator without damage.
••• 3 Steps to Install Wheel Check Indicator•••
1. Torque wheel nuts to proper specifications (recommended ft/lb).
2. Ensure correct size by measuring unit from flat to flat
3. Place one Wheel Check Indicator over each nut with the raised collar resting against the wheel.
Push with both thumbs or a socket flush to the wheel (see below picture).
The layout pattern used for the Wheel Check Indicator on the wheel is of personal choice; it is
often dictated by the wheel rim size and profile, and/or the PCD of the stud.
What is the most commonly used patterns of wheel check indicator?
***Any patterned configuration may be used so long as the movement away from the set pattern
of one or more of the Wheel Check Indicator will be clearly visible on inspection.
•• It is important to remember, when arranging the pattern you will use as the layout for the
Wheel Check Indicator on the wheel, that should a wheel nut loosen off, the Wheel Check Indicator
pointer needs room to move to indicate that the wheel nut has moved; this is normally anti
clockwise. The length of the pointer should not therefore be aligned against the wheel rim profile,
which could restrict movement.
1. Provides a simple, visual means of confirming proper wheel torque in seconds.
2. Reduce your risk of wheel detachment accidents.
(Protect the public, help prevent property and load damage.)
3. Lower your maintenance costs by eliminating unnecessary re-torquing.
4. Quickly identify a hot wheel possibly caused by bearing failure or brake drag.
5. Decrease equipment downtime.
6. Facilitates official roadside inspections.
7. Clearly visible at night and in bad weather (rain, snow, muddy conditions).
8. Easy to install.
9. Cost is only a few dollars per wheel.
10. Pays for itself in just one unnecessary re-torque procedure.
