Bulletin: REDCAT always advise the removal of ANY wheel safety product before wheel nut torque checking, insuffcient engagement between the socket and nut
caused by the proximity of ANY product whilst forquing can result in sudden detachment and possible injury due to the decreased leverage resistance at the
socket nut interface. This leverage is exacebated with the introduction of extension bars primarily on dual rear wheels.
It is critical to remove wheel safety products whilst performing torque checks.
For over 14 years Redcat® have manufactured and supplied high quality wheel safety to transport mining and military operations throughout the world.
Our international patent pending indicator lockers are a natural progression to customer requirements and are based on well documented loosening wheel fundamentals, namely the crucial need for early detection of loosening wheels due to stud fatigue strength, hub and wheel settling and human error, Redcat™ address the basic shortfalls of simple locking products which blind the operator from this necessary early identification and resolution.
By providing critical clear visual indication of the initial loosening process combined with locking ability, our unique indicator locker design provides unmatched performance in the detection of loosening wheels and prevention of total detachment.
Redact are the additionally designed to provide indication of excessive brake temperature in a simple visual walk round, dramatically reducing problem brake identification and substantially reducing maintenance turnaround time.
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, REDCAT do not take responsibility for incorrect use or failure to adhere to advised manufacturers maintenance procedures.
