You need to have a look at your pics again. The nuts in your pics aren't the same.
Note the difference between the three.
The staked one in the youtube video has a thinner section above the hex to enable staking into the slot on the threaded end of the stub axle. It has a larger flat area at the bearing end, effectively a built in washer.
The fieldfare 'alko style' one is the oneshot type & not staked.
But if you actually have the nut pictured in your link to TrailerTek then that is a staked hub nut. I wouldn't be surprised to find a washer between that nut & the bearing.

Staked hub nuts of the video type/TrailerTek type aren't unusual on cars - our Pug 306s had them on the rears.
To remove them it helps to use a pointed punch to ease the staked in part out which makes them easier to remove OR a breaker bar on a socket & brute force which will push the staked part out.
I have reused staked ones of that type providing the metal in the staked area hasn't broken away during removal but it is preferable to use new.
Use a flat ended tool & a hammer - or suitable piece of steel - to stake. Punch or big screwdriver works for me.

Thanks Paintman, I picked up the stake nut from Trailertek yesterday, you are right there is a washer that goes underneath it.

Thanks for the pointer about removing and reinstalling. It’s good to know people do this with a hand tool and hammer. I wasn’t sure I could put enough force to deform the nut in to the slot, but now I know it just needs to be hit really firmly!

I used a 3/4" drive torque wrench with a standard 24mm?. socket, and a piece of scaffold pole.
It took some force to undo it.
The nut is supposedly single use, however i have reused it a few times.
A standard 1/2" drive bar is not strong enough. I managed to shear off the square end and thus ruin a 1/2" torque wrench.
