A locking wheel nut is designed to prevent alloy wheel theft. It’s a uniquely shaped fastener that can only be removed with a uniquely shaped key, or at least that is the principle behind it. What tends to happen, however, is the locking key gets lost or broken and the vehicle-owner only discovers this once they have a flat tyre and need the locker to put the spare wheel on.
