LONGVIEW, Tex. – Stemco has released its new Zip-Torq single-piece axle fastener, which aims to simplify the wheel end bearing adjustment with its unitized design.
The Zip-Torq eliminates special tooling and loose components like clips, keepers, snap rings and screws, while also delivering increased simplicity and safety by preventing inadvertent back-off and consistent locking force with high-strength wave spring.
“Zip-Torq is the natural result of our safety culture and decades of progress developing wheel end systems,” said Chip Stuhr, director of Stemco wheel end products. “The Stemco Pro-Torq nut revolutionized the way a wheel end was adjusted and set, and Zip-Torq is the next step in our mission of making the roadways safer.”
