1-1/2” Torque-Tight™ loose lug nut indicators is one of our top selling product line. The 1-1/2” lug nut is used on most late model class 6,7,and 8 trucks. Torque-Tight™ indicators provides one of the easiest way to increase the awareness of the driver during the DOT required walkaround.
Torque-Tight™ indicators are a small plastic piece that is cut to a teardrop shape, then a 24 point section of teeth are cut to in the shape of a circle that create an interference fit on a standard Hex Nut. Torque-Tight™ indicators are designed to be much larger (more than 2x in fact) than our competitors, this allows for a blatant visual reference when performing a walkaround. Our Torque-Tight™ indicators come in 3 standard colors, Green, Orange, and Black, however they are available in any color you can imagine (with a minimum order). For less than $25 you can reduce the risk of wheel off accidents, and heck, you may even save a few lives in the process.

We have implemented the use of torque-tight loose lug nut indicators on all trailers at our company. It allows our drivers a quick and easy, visual pre-trip inspection to assure all lug nuts are tight. They have paid for themselves MANY times over! Just 1 DOT violation is $ and CSA points we cannot afford to waste. Thanks for a great product.
