Prolock Security Clamps
the simple answer to wheel loss in commercial vehicles
The problem of wheel detachment on trucks and buses has occupied fleet engineers and transport specialists for many years. Much has been written, many tests conducted and a number of products developed to combat the problem. Yet wheels STILL come off.
Some companies view the matter very seriously, others fit some sort of device to pacify VOSA and HSE, others again take the approach that ‘it’s never happened to us’. Nevertheless, wheels STILL come off – in some cases causing injuries and even fatalities.
Prolock security clamps solve the problem. Not just an indicator, not a complicated device, not an expensive technological wonder, simply a clamp that locks on to two adjacent wheel nuts to stop them coming off.
New Propoint for added peace of mind
At Eurobus Expo, November 2012 we introduced the Propoint visual marker – the perfect complement to the Prolock security clamp. Adding Propoint markers to a wheel fitted with Prolock security clamps gives the professional operator the vital reassurance that all is well. We call this the Complete Wheel Protection Programme.

THE COMPLETE WHEEL PROTECTION PROGRAMME
Here we have the solution to the wheel loss problem
Wheels become detached when the wheel nuts lose clamping force for some reason. To prevent this and the problems that arise, responsible operators need to take preventive action.
Prolock is an industry success story – these clamps will prevent wheel nuts coming off in the event of loss of clamping force.
Propoint visual markers give clear visual warning if any wheel nut has moved.
Prolock does the hard work – Propoint provides assurance
Either product can be fitted separately, but both together provide an unbeatable combination.
