AME International Offers ‘Wheel-Off’ Solution
At the world renowned SEMA show in Las Vegas last November, AME International recently introduced its Rollock wheel loss prevention device. Rollock is a patented clamp which is placed over two truck wheel nuts. Once in place, the product does not allow the nuts to loosen. Loosened wheel nuts can cause a serious accident in which the wheel assembly actually comes off of the vehicle while driving at highway speeds, an accident commonly referred to as a ‘wheel-off’.
“We’re excited about the prospects of this product,” said Keith Jarman, president of AME. “The industry is aware of the serious problems that loosened lug nuts can cause and this product is an extra layer of protection”. “Rollock is an inexpensive added layer of safety for the companies who use this.” Rollock is manufactured in Sweden, and currently sold throughout Europe.
AME International is based in Brooksville, Florida where all the company’s marketing, design and engineering activities are situated. AME International has global warehousing facilities in Florida, Canada, Holland and Australia from where it distributes tools and equipment across all major markets.
