Checkthread kit is a handy new set of tools designed to facilitate the monitoring of wheel stud quality and stud hole integrity, as well as to determine the correct nut type to be used with the wheel.  The product should be used when servicing wheels, to help raise awareness of the critical nature of wheel security, its fundamental correlation with the quality of studs/stud holes and to highlight problems to reduce the risk of accidents occurring.

It has been proven that poor quality, stretched, damaged or ill-fitting studs can be a cause of loose wheel nuts and/or a wheel detachment.  Likewise, if the quality of the wheel itself, particularly of one or more stud holes, is below the required standard, the security of the wheel can be heavily compromised.

It is highly recommended that a thread tester is used on every stud at the point of wheel servicing and/or at regular intervals in line with company vehicle service policy, however some companies choose to use the tread testers as a 'spot check' quality test for studs, or test a portion of the studs as standard such as two studs per wheel.

Used to highlight problems with the stud thread that are not necessarily obvious under initial visual inspection such as stud stretching, distortion, damage, dents, cracks and corrosion.
