Case Study

April 2016 - Overtightened Nuts

A customer contacted Tuffnut explaining that he was unable to remove the overtightened locking wheel nuts from his Mitsubishi Shogun which he had purchased around a month previously.

His local garage had already tried a number of methods without success and had actually damaged one of the nuts quite badly and caused some minor damage to the vehicles alloy wheel.

All of our industry standard techniques, although able to securely 'grip' the undamaged nuts, were not successful due to the the excessive overtightening.

After explaining the situation to our customer, we offered our specialist 'overtightened and damaged' nut/bolt service. This is a bespoke solution and was 100% successful and caused no further damage to any of the wheels.
