Lug nuts socket

I just bought a 13/16 6 point socket to use with my torque wrench . I have a 2109s mini-lite and when I try to torque the lug it just slips off . Any ideas??

You either have the wrong size socket or the chromium plated shell on the lugs are stripped out. If so expect a battle royal.
You might see how a 3/4" fits or a 17, 18 or 19 mm socket works.

I am guessing it is a sae size. Mine is 3/4 inch. BTW, 19mm = 0.748 inches.

Yep, as you have discovered you had the wrong size socket. A 19 mm is real close to a 3/4.... but your original 13/16 socket is close to a 21 mm.


Most OE lug nuts on trailers are going to be SAE as mjf55 pointed out.

Those sleeves on the lug nuts can become a real problem. I was using a torque wrench on my wheels and one of the sleeves rounded off. Pain to get that lug nut then. I purchased regular nuts at my tire dealer and replaced them all.
Could have just removed the sleeves but the chrome nuts I got look better.
