Doing loads of kms in our family four wheel drive, we have personally experienced both Wheel Loss and Bearing Collapse while travelling and towing - It's dangerous, stressful, scary, expensive and also a huge waste of time, especially when you're away on precious holidays, or trying to get out to a job.
We came across some yellow Loose Wheel Nut Indicators on a work vehicle and educated ourselves about their safety applications. Now, we would not consider going anywhere without them.
As well as the obvious safety benefits, we also loved the look of them… the only problem was, we couldn't find anywhere to buy a set! After searching high and low, checking all the major (and minor) 4wd accessory suppliers, we eventually found an Aussie Made Wheel Nut Indicator...
The traditional Safety Yellow looked OK, but we wanted something a bit different ... but, again, these were literally impossible to find on the retail market - as in, they did not exist! ... So, we took a gamble and had Green, Black, Red, and Orange made for us in Melbourne, Australia, by major Aussie Wheel Safety Expert and Manufacturer Redcat Industries. In March 2016, NutWare opened for business- on selling this great product in a retail format for the everyday driver.
OUR AIM is to provide everyday drivers, tradies, families and travelers like us, with an affordable and reliable device that works hard 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We are a family business, located on the rugged west coast of South Australia's Eyre Peninsula. Tim is a Locomotive Engineer and Amy is an Anthropological Research Assistant and Genealogist. Three rowdy, messy boys and a big dog tag a long where ever we go... Clocking up the kms in our family bus - the Landcruiser 70 Series, V8 Workmate wagon.
In our spare time, we are all about 4wd adventures, exploring, hiking, MX, fishing, surf & being outdoors. We tow a 16ft Viscount Pop Top for camping; boat trailer and tinny - loaded with boards and kayak for fishing and surfing our local beaches; a 7x5 trailer for motorbikes, and a 6x4 for general work.
We do a lot of kms and we tow A LOT. And we love it.
