Why use SKF spanners and sockets for mounting and dismounting bearings?

A wide range of SKF spanners and sockets are available to suit all shapes and sizes of bearing lock nuts. Whether the bearing is mounted directly on the shaft or onto a sleeve, there is an SKF spanner or socket available. 

Using a correctly fitted spanner or socket helps to reduce the risk of nut damage, as well as reducing the risk of damage to the bearing and surrounding equipment. 

The use of an SKF spanner and socket can also reduce the manual effort required, along with reducing the risk of injury during mounting and dismounting.
