Auto-Torq streamlines wheel end installation by eliminating the need for complex processes and specialty tools. With no need for washers, clips, snap rings, screws, or keepers, Auto-Torq makes installation simple and efficient. Plus, by applying the optimum clamp load on the bearings, bearing wear is minimized, resulting in the longest bearing service life.

The Auto-Torq is an all-in-one solution that is compatible with any industry hub manufacturer. Also, when combined with STEMCO's industry-leading seals, bearings, and hubcaps, customers can benefit from extended warranties on their wheel ends.
