There’s a misunderstanding here.......the Center-Lok is the Nut.........because it locks the wheel against the Hub......

The SS loop welded on to the Center-Lok Nut exactly in the same place on each nut is to tie the Cobra down in the trailer......we hook our straps to the loops on the Center-Lok Nuts and ratchet the car in position in the trailer......because the car is to low to strap anything underneath the bottom and because we have the Torsional plate and panels covering up all of the under side of KMP259.....

The reason you have to weld the loops on the Nuts in the same place on each nut is so you can buy a impact socket and machine out the slot for the loop and still slide the socket over the loop to engage the faces of the nut.....to install or remove the traveling nuts and install the racing nut that don’t have the loop mounted on them.....look at one of the first photo’s and you’ll see two different sockets to remove the nuts .....
