How does this device work?
Squirrel minimizes the possibilities of road accidents by reducing wheel loss incidences. This device’s design is such that it applies a direct force against the wheel nut’s side. This means the nuts won’t vibrate even in the case of clamping force loss.

The nuts of a wheel typically vibrate due to lack of re-checking, incorrect initial tension, shock loading on studs, paint/dirt between dual wheels. These are some common reasons behind the vibration of nuts. The situations vary by where and how frequently you drive your vehicle.
