Loose Mounting Bolts

Jul 2nd, 2018 | By | Category: Tow Tip

When performing a visual maintenance check of towing equipment, carefully check along weld lines, brackets and mounting bolts for signs of movement such as cracks, galling or “broken” paint around bolts and brackets. Check for loose mounting bolts. Many towing operators replace loose bolts. However, if you decide it’s acceptable to tighten a loose bolt, mark or paint the bolt and check it periodically. If it loosens again, replace it.
