Default how to stake axle nut

just curious-

how do you stake your axle nut? I tried a flathead but it ended up going right through the metal on the nut. Im thinking a blunt tool would be more efficient.

How do you stake your nuts?

A reasonable big sears screwdriver, and a little persuasion from a hammer. It does not take much.

i just give it a few taps with the hammer so it dents in alittle. i hate when people hammer the **** out of them. it makes it a total bitch to take off later.

awesome thanks for the replies! I am not near my car, nor have I seen it in the past few months.... but I dont recall my axles having holes for a cotter pin.

do certain axles have holes while others do not?

Use a punch that is the width of the indent on the axle and hammer it in
