In the fastening industry, it can sometimes be difficult to find a solution that stands alone above the rest of the competition. But Securex® Wheel Nuts have become the first choice of virtually all hub, drum, and wheel original equipment manufacturers in the United States.
How was Securex® able to achieve this? By offering a fastening solution with 3 to 5 times more clamping force than you’d find in conventional ball-seat fasteners. This helps ensure an extended wheel life, reduces maintenance, and also improves the overall safety.
Each nut body of the Securex® Wheel Fastener is forged with through-hardened carbon steel, and each free spinning washer is also comprised of through-hardened and tempered chrome-moly steel. Why? Because this particular design feature generates a bearing-type action that allows for a greater amount of torque to be transmitted into clamping force.
In addition to that advantage, this bearing action also delivers a more exact torque-to-clamp force relationship. In turn, that then opens the door for the entire fastening system to be used at the optimum end of the load range.
There are a few other features to mention here. Each fastener is complete with a heat lot traceability code, along with the name forged into the washer. This is done to ensure the integrity of the product. To reduce friction and increase protection against corrosion, it has also been coated with PTFE.
This solution also meets the stringent requirements of SAE J1965 for torque tension requirements.
