    Hi Joe,

    I have not seen these used on the brake caliper bolts or pinch bolts. I've only seen clips used in lieu of a cotter pin that would be used in securing the rear axle and crown nut. Looking at the video the brake caliper bolt clips look fairly loose for my liking. Safety wiring is way more simple, cheaper and also provides a tighter hold on bolts that may vibrate loose. Please see page 14 of our rule book for more details.

    Hope this helps,
    George

    Thanks man..

    I just thought it would be easier to change wheels but it's all good to use full safety wire.
