Tightening the Lug Nuts on Your Trailer in Seattle WA

No Comments

545Tightening the lug nuts to the proper torque for the axle size on your trailer helps prevent the wheels from coming loose.

When you do this, make sure you use a torque wrench to tighten the fasteners.  It you do not have access to a torque wrench, you can tighten the fasteners with a lug wrench as tightly as possible.

If you go this route, make sure that you have our technicians at Trailer Boss tighten the lug nuts to the proper torque.

If you don’t know, over-tightening the lug nuts can lead to breaking the studs or permanently deforming the mounting stud holes.

Here are some tips for tightening the wheel lug nuts properly:

1. Wipe off each stud with a washcloth and air blow the inside of each lug nut to make sure they are clean.

2. Use your hand to tighten each lug nut onto their correlating stud.

3. If you have access to an impact wrench, you may use it to just barely tighten the lug nuts, but stop right away when you hear a few clicks.

4. Drop the vehicle to the floor.

5. Check the manufacturer recommended torque and set it on the torque wrench.

6. Tighten each lug nut according to to the recommended torque.

Make sure to follow these steps and take care of your trailer in Seattle WA!  If you do, it will take care of all of your bug jobs with less failure and have a longer lifespan.
