Locking Wheel Nut Removal

Locking wheel nuts prevent theft of vehicle wheels and are therefore a very useful device for vehicle owners. If you have unfortunately lost your locking wheel nut, don’t panic! Give us a call and we will advise of next steps.

What are locking wheel nuts

A locking wheel nut is crucial to keep in your car at all times as you will need this special key to remove your wheel. Each set of locking wheel nuts has a unique indent with a key that matches up with the pattern. If you have a flat tyre or you just need a tyre replacement and you don’t have the locking wheel nut, this can cause further issues and delay the process as you will need to have the locking wheel nut mechanically removed.

The best place to keep your locking wheel nut key is in your vehicle because you never know when you may need it! You could experience a tyre puncture anywhere and at any time, and in the first instance, the locking wheel nut is always required in order to remove or repair the tyre. If you have unfortunately lost your locking wheel nut, don’t panic! Give us a call and we will advise of next steps.
