I put a liberal coat of copper grease over the outside of the stud and nut. Once it gets warm and cools again it creates a good skin on the outside that stops moisture entry. I've never had a wheel come loose this way.

Love the shelves Dave, I used to visit a Hardware store in Pershore run by an old guy call Mr Brown, the shop looked rather like your shelves and he would lay his hands on the most obscure item in seconds, sometimes, resorting to a shovel to move stuff out the way first. I think its called organised chaos!

Hi

for all bolts, axles etc , we use LanoShield that have had made and now provide it with our our trailers but any lanolin grease product will work:

Lanolin is used in most countries apart from Europe and is bi product when they wash wool ie 100% eco freindly.

Key Feature Summary

Water resistant
Power wash resistant up to 3000 psi
Non-leaching
Non-evaporating
Acid and Alkaline resistant
Non-conductive to 70w
Does not evaporate
Salt resistant
Rated as non-hazardous

It is also safe to put on the RIB tubes but to date I have not found a need for doing that!!

In summary, this natural wool bi-product has a lot of uses but is the best trailer protection we have found.

Welsh lads swear by a nice soft hand smelling of sheep.

My brother used to use it with a Corbin press for swaging lead bullets for use with .455 Webleys. No other grease/lubricant could touch it.
These were of the 'Manstopper' and 'Naval Target' variety which didn't lend themselves to casting. Very popular with the more serious Classic Revolver shooters & he always had plenty of orders.

Depending on the Grease spec will actually make the bolt less likely to come out. I work for one of the formula one teams and we used gripcot grease on our wheel nut cones and thread. Yes totally different but the principle still stands

well just read fourpages of total crap about wheel nuts and studs ,of course everywhere you go you see dead boat trailers laying by the roadside having shed their wheel nuts /studs because there owners were not quite so engineeringly qualified to make the decision which grease or otherwise to use , as saiad before buy a rollerbunk system and keep your nuts out of the water ,save you a fortune on brakes ,bearings and even nuts
