personally i wouldn't re-use the one shot nuts because they are elliptical when new and stretch to form the lock nut onced used they stay stretched so not as effective im sure alko recommend single use and for the price of them piece of mind IMO

It was when I used the pattern bearings. After that I used the genuine kits that came with a new nut.

yep not condemning anyone dave bit old school me if it ain't got a split pin i'm cautious even had to buy a torque wrench that went up to the required torque just thought i'd mention it just in case someone not familiar wasn't aware
thats why i mentioned non waterproof bearings mine sometimes rumble after 3 months not what the OP asked but it's there for comparison ive found the back seals let them down more that the caps.

I found grease nipples were the culprit with this.
Once they've been "topped up" a few times there's no compressible air space left and the next squeeze on the grease gun pops the seal out of the back of the hub.

Run 2 trailers with Al-Ko waterproof braked hubs on the one with the 7m RIB and Knott waterproof braked on the trailer with the 6.5m RIB . Guess which one has had the most bearing failures .. the last one being on M5 at Easter ...

No play at last check a week before trip. Hubs not warm after 100 miles ... just a major bearing collapse

A shade under 12 months . They had done over 3000 miles and were running smooth with no play at all.
