About Quick Release Skewers
Quick release skewers are rods which are threaded at one end, with a cam assembly on the other. This combines to make a lever operated cam system. The quick release mechanism was invented in 1927 by Tullio Campagnolo, who was an Italian bicycle racer. He was frustrated when he needed to repair a flat tyre during a race, the weather had turned cold, and his hands were numb, so he could not operate the wingnuts which retained the wheel. He had been well-placed prior to the puncture, but lost valuable time, so decided to develop a quick release skewer system which enables simple wheel removal in seconds.

Magazine reviews for Hope Steel Rod MTB Quick Release Skewer Set
Review from What MTB
Hope's quick releases fall firmly into the bling camp. The cam and bush are both made from resilient brass, but care must be taken that these stay lubricated as they do tend to bind if left dry. We had problems getting several wheels in tight enough - in both rigid and suspension forks - and weren't helped by the knurled nut which was sharp to grip. The handle is also pretty uncomfortable and a bit too narrow to fget purchase on when wet. The shaft is stainless, so they shouyld last ages, though.
Great looking pair which are strong but need a little tlc occasionally
Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
I'm looking for a skewer with a harder material (steel) at least on the nut side that will hopefully solve the problem.
You can, however, convert the hub to QR very easily by buying the adapters. They are just alternate end caps for the hub.
