DISC-LOCK announced that its patented Safety Wheel Nut and improved Locking Lug Nut for Trucks would be tested live in front of all attendees at the mid America Trucking show March 22-24 2007 truckingshow.com at Booth 7702
Demonstrations on the Disc-Lock stand using a Junker Vibration machine shows how a standard two-piece wheel nut (Lug Nut) can be shaken loose in less than one minute by means of a Junker vibration test machine, while the Disc-Lock Safety Wheel Nut remains secure.
The improved 2007 safety wheel nut version Disc-Lock Safety Wheel Nut has been strengthened considerably to overcome excessive over-torquing caused by air-gun abuse on wheel nuts. In addition, the height of the middle hexagon-flanged washer on the wheel nut has been increased to give better socket engagement.
Since 2006 the Safety wheel nut has been RoHS compliant with an environmentally friendly anti corrosion coating. The coating used is from GEOMET®, which is water based and VOC compliant compromised of overlapping zinc and aluminum in an organic binder. The new environmentally safe coated Wheel lock nut can then withstand salt spray tests of 720 hours.
The vibration and shockproof wheel nut is used for commercial trucks, trailers and buses. It is a very affordable solution designed to eliminate wheel loss that cause severe accidents that are often fatal which are very expensive to owner and operators.
This is the first of two shows to exhibit the live Safety Wheel nut testing with the Junkers Machine, the second show will be in Europe at The Commercial Vehicle Show 2007, The NEC (National Exhibition Center) Birmingham, England April 24-27th 2007 www.cvshow.com
