Keeping your wheels on

Being overtaken by events, or, in the case of a truck, being overtaken by one of your own wheels isn’t just disturbing – it can be life threatening.

To eliminate the problem, Wheelsafe, working in conjunction with BIP, has come up with the Mk II Squirrel. In place, moulded-in ribs on the ten faces of the Squirrel prevent the wheel nuts from vibrating loose, or even moving from their ‘torqued up’ position. A special grade of BIP’s Beetle nylon 6 was developed for the application, to ensure that a high degree of flexibility and toughness is maintained.
