About Locking Lug Nut Remover
Forgetting to ask for the key to the wheel locks on the car you bought several months ago was not your brightest moment, but the circumstances are not as dire as they seem. A locking lug nut remover allows you to solve this tricky problem. The tool typically features reverse-tapered internal threads that grip the lug nuts when you rotate counter-clockwise, and you can use it on both stripped and locked lug nuts. Locking lug nut removal tools are usually compatible with 1/2-inch drive sockets that allow you to use a standard impact wrench for removal. Most emergency locking lug nut remover kits include two or three different pieces to fit different size lug nuts. Tools typically taper down from 13/16 inches to 3/4 inches and from 15/16 inches down to 13/16 inches. They are also heavy-duty and typically made of hardened steel so you do not have to worry about the tools cracking during use. If you lose your key or never had it at all, you can still remove your wheel locks with the right tools found among the vast inventory on eBay.
