A vibration-proof wheel nut, specifically designed to prevent wheel nut loosening.
The Disc-Lock™ works based on the angle of the cams on the wheel nut being greater than the angle of the thread on the stud.
In order to loosen under vibration, the locking nut would have to rise over the interlocking cams, however this is physically prevented due to the difference in pitch angles. This enables the Disc-Lock™ to prevent wheel nut loosening and help prevent wheel loss on commercial vehicles.
The Disc-Lock™ range is Greenkoted. This hard-wearing coating gives exceptional corrosion resistance and durability. This provides another advantage over standard wheel nuts which can be susceptible to corrosion and lead to further wheel fixing issues.
Directions for use
Disc-Lock™ Wheel nuts are easy to install and can be used as a direct replacement for standard wheel nuts. They are fitted in the same way as a standard wheel nut but require a larger socket size.
