“Righty tighty, lefty loosey.”

Choolwe Sitemba Mwitangeti commented:

“There's a thin line between truck drivers and truckers.”

Tinashe Mazai replied:

“Rule number 1, clockwise tightening, anti-clockwise loosening, unless otherwise indicated.”

“He is loosening the correct direction. If you check on the studs you will see an L on the left side for the left-hand thread and R on the right side for the right-hand thread. But the pipe is too far out, causing spring load and no torque to loosen.”

Hans Hartmann shared:

“I am very surprised by the comments, and understand why truck owners have contracts with tyre companies. On the left, most trucks have reverse thread, so he is doing it right to loosen the nut. But the pipe should be supported because that will slip off the nut like that.”
