Dustite LR® Wheel Nut Cover / Indicator

  • Provides a clear visual indication of nut movement, particularly useful and applicable for commercial vehicle wheels even where an obstructive wheel trim exists
  • Provides an indication of wheel overheating which is otherwise difficult to detect, usually as a result of brakes sticking or problems with the bearings, through the use of specific product material melting points (Standard and High Temperature options available)
  • Provides a clear visual commitment to roadworthiness and professionalism to other road users, customers, health and safety, road and transportation associations such as DFT, HMRC Customs and Excise, VOSA, HSE, FTA and RHA
  • Prolongs the service life of studs & nuts, through protection from corrosion, weathering and damage.

The Dustite LR® combines a loose wheel nut Indicator, with a standard dust cap for use on wheels with trims. Like the Checkpoint®, Dustites LR® indicate loosening of safety critical nuts and includes a wheel overheating function, but offers the additional benefits that come with a wheel nut cap for protecting the nut from weathering, corrosion and general road damage.

Dustites LR® is designed to be fitted on wheels with trims/step rings since the pointer, located at the tip of the product, allows for it to fit through the access hole on a trim/step ring. Where a trim/step ring is not fitted to the wheel, Dustite® or Checkpoint® indicators must be used. Dustite LR® is fitted onto the wheel nuts in a recognisable pattern once the nuts have been tightened to the manufacturers recommendations using a suitable torque wrench. This must be monitored closely through routine walk around checks, so that if any of the indicators move from the initial pattern appropriate action can be taken.

Dustite LR® Standard/High Temp (HT) are manufactured in the highest quality virgin polymers and are resistant to moisture/water, road salt, oil, detergents and most other common solvents/contaminants.

The integrated design of the Dustite LR® fully encloses wheel nuts manufactured to ISO, DIN, or the BS standards that cover Spigot, Captive Washer, Conical, or Spherical seating wheel nuts.

Dustite LR® is sized by the corresponding measurement (in millimetres) across the flats of the hexagonal nut fitting. Current sizes available* include (in mm):

28, 30, 32, 33- Standard model Dustite LR®

The standard colour for Dustite LR® is FluoroYellow 

Dustite LRs® are manufactured in the highest quality virgin polymers and are resistant to moisture/water, road salt, oil, detergents and most other common solvents/contaminants.

Dustite LR® is made from the same material as Checkpoint® and is available in standard material which has a melting temperature of 125°C. Subject to minimum quantity orders, High Temperature (HT) is also available, which melts at 165°C. The independent material testing results of the standard and HT are available from the downloads tab.
