DustiteLR® (long reach) combines a nut movement indicator and dust cap. The LR is designed specifically for use on vehicle wheels with trims.
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. The Dustite LR® is a core product from Checkpoint Safety and in very high demand globally. The Dustite LR® is offered in a range of sizes to cover a wide scope of applications throughout industrial, agricultural, military, mining and commercial vehicle sectors amongst others.
The primary functions of Dustite LR® are to:
￼✓ Provide a clear visual indication of nut movement, particularly useful / applicable for commerical vehicle wheels where an obstructive wheel trim exists
✓ Provide an indication of wheel overheating which is otherwise difficult to detect, usually as a result of brakes sticking or problems with the bearings
✓ Provide a clear visual commitment to roadworthiness and professionalism to other road users and transportation associations such as DFT, VOSA and FTA
✓ Prolong the service life of studs/nuts by protecting from corrosion/weathering
The primary benefits of fitting Dustite LR® are:
￼✓ Improved safety of fittings where nuts are a critical structural component, such as on vehicle wheels where an obstructive wheel trim exists
✓ Facilitates the ease of walk around and visual checks/audits to locate problems
✓ Reduced maintenance time/costs resulting from accurate locating of nut loosening or wheel overheating
✓ Reduction in vehicle downtime
✓ Improved safety and protection of nuts/bolts from corrosion & damage
✓ Improved professionalism, roadworthiness and company image/reputation
✓ Cost effective, quick and easy solution to implement
