It is common for wheel nuts to work their way loose and require tightening immediately.

A simple remedy is to check the nuts every morning or, better still, insert wheel indicator tags for increased safety.

These tags quickly identify even a slight loosening of the wheel nuts.

Wheel tag indicators provide an easy visual inspection method to ensure fleet safety.
