As advised by all major rim manufacturers and adopted as best industry
practice, to reduce the wheel loosening effects of stud fatigue stretch
and hub/wheel settling it is recommended that a retorque of the
changed wheel or wheels be conducted after 50-60KLMS travelled.
REDCAT WHEEL RETORQUE WARNING HANGERS provide a highly
visible reminder to operators and maintenance staff of the need to
perform this task.
A simple tick box interface provides details of the wheels affected as well as a sign off provision for each required step, maintaining a clearly documented safety procedure.
Simply hung over the indicator stalk, gear lever, mirror etc.
FACT: HUMAN ERROR – STUD FATIGUE STRETCH – HUB / WHEEL SETTLING
These issues are the FUNDAMENTAL reasons for loosening wheels.
If not detected early, due to high cyclical loads these common problems
will quickly result in expensive wheel end repairs, excessive vehicle
downtime, or at worst, disasterous wheel detachment.
