Stemco has released the new Zip-Torq single-piece axle fastener. According to Stemco, Zip-Torq simplifies and streamlines the wheel end bearing adjustment with its single-piece, unitized design. The Zip-Torq eliminates special tooling and loose components like clips, keepers, snap rings or screws, the company added.
The patented Zip-Torq heavy-duty self-locking mechanism also delivers increased simplicity and safety by preventing inadvertent back-off, the company said. Consistent locking force is maintained by the high-strength wave spring, further eliminating unwanted back-off.
