UNITED KINGDOM, U.K. - July 15, 2013 - PRLog -- Detachment of wheels from vehicles, particularly heavy commercial vehicles, has been a cause of concern for many years. Detached wheels can just come to rest and cause little or no damage. However, in worst cases they can collide with other vehicles causing accidents and even fatalities.

Research from *VOSA/TRL has indicated that a simple cost effective solution is to fit wheel nut movement indicators and retainers to alert drivers and maintenance engineers of any wheel nut movements.

*Checkpoint Safety the leading global manufacturers, inventors and suppliers of the original wheel nut indicator have championed safety and protection for over 25 years.  According to *VOSA/TRL, this simple solution already popular in the industry could further benefit by helping to eliminate wheel detachment and generate a cost benefit of between £5.8m -£13.9m annually.
