The  REDCAT 1 Loose Wheel Indicators provide real time, between service constant visual indication of LOOSENING wheels and OVERHEATING brakes.

For cost-efficient, effective and proactive fleet maintenance and increased safety, your wheel safety product must, at the very least, provide an indication of these issues between scheduled maintenance checks. This allows for timely scheduled intervention, minimising expensive part replacement and unscheduled downtime.

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 down time, or at worst disastrous wheel detachment

Please Note: The REDCAT Visual Loose Wheel Nut Indicator can be cleaned using any of available detergent solutions, or kerosene, and are unaffected by road salts or petrochemicals. The REDCAT Visual Loose Wheel Nut Indicator default colour is safety yellow.

NB – The use of REDCAT indicators assist in the pre-emptive identification of loosening wheels, they are not intended to replace or compromise recommended vehicle, wheel or hub manufacturer’s maintenance procedures, or operator maintenance structures. Redcat indicator/restrainers provide an increased safety window to allow for identification and resolution of pending wheel detachment. Redcat do not take responsibility for incorrect use or failure to adhere to advised manufacturers or operators maintenance procedures. Indicator restrainers temporarily extend the wheel safety window to allow for timely visual identification of pending damage or detachment. Indicator restrainers or other wheel safety products will not restrain a loose wheel indefinitely. Standard operator awareness of excessive wheel vibration, wobble or noise is still required to be acted upon. Overlooked or compromised inspections and or responses can ultimately result in wheel failure and or detachment.
