Wheel-Check

Wheel-Check® looks to improve highway safety by providing an easy way to spot a loose wheel nut with just a visual inspection.

The North American manufacturedWheel-Check® device is a small, brightly colored arrow-shaped indicator that is placed over an individual nut. The devices are placed on all of the wheel nuts in a uniform pattern. That way, if a nut becomes loose, the arrow-shaped indicator will be out of place and easy to spot during a walk around.

Wheel-Check® is also heat sensitive. If there are brake or bearing issues, the heat will transfer to the Wheel-Check® device. Temperatures above 248 degrees will cause the device to blister and distort, giving an easy visual indication that the truck requires attention.
