Locking Wheel Nut Removal
Locking wheel nuts, they are a fantastic idea to prevent wheel theft, but they can also be a right pain if you lose the key.
Unfortunately, it’s quite common nowadays for garages to over-tighten, break, or lose your locking wheel nut socket during a tyre change. So when the time comes for you to take your wheel off, you might be horribly disappointed to find that your lock nut key is damaged beyond use, or missing.
Due to the nature of their design, locking wheel nuts can be difficult to remove; and if you don’t have much experience with mechanical work, then you could end up causing more damage if you try to remove them yourself.
Fortunately, there is an easy and convenient solution! We provide a mobile locking wheel nut removal service across many areas of Dorset. Our expert technicians can come to you and remove your old locking wheel nuts with our specialist equipment.
For many years, we’ve been recommended by breakdown companies such as the AA and RAC to remove locking wheel nuts for customers that are stranded at home or roadside.
We stock a wide variety of replacement nuts and bolts, as well as various master key sets for car makes such as Volkswagen, Audi, BMW, Mercedes, and Volvo.
Why Choose Us
What Are Locking Wheel Nuts?
Many years ago, when alloy wheels were first put on cars, wheel theft used to be a common issue for car owners. People would wake up in the morning to find their pride and joy left on a pile of bricks with the wheels missing.
Car manufacturers heard these complaints from their customers and decided to design a tool that would make it as difficult as possible for thieves to steal their customer’s wheels.
So, locking wheel nuts were invented as a cost-effective and practical solution. Locking wheel nuts are uniquely designed fasteners than require a specific type of key to remove them.
Where Can I Find My Lock Nut Key?
There are many different locations you can find your locking wheel nut key, including:
- In the glove box
- In the centre console
- Underneath the front passenger seat
- In the boot
- Underneath the spare wheel
If you’ve searched high and low but still can’t find the key, then you may need a locking wheel nut removal service.
My Wheel Nut Key Is Broken. What Do I Do?
A wheel nut key can break for a number of reasons, the most common being using a power tool to fasten them.
A locking wheel nut key is quite delicate and can easily snap when over-tightened. And even if the tool doesn’t snap, it can become distorted and no longer fit properly.
If you find yourself with a broken wheel nut key, we have a wide range of removal tools and master keys to get your wheel nuts off.
How To Remove Locking Wheel Nuts
It is possible to remove locking wheel nuts with basic tools such as left-hand thread sockets, a hammer, and a sharp chisel; but most types of modern locking wheel nuts are designed to prevent these forms of removal.
We personally use a wide range of specialist locking nut removal tools such as master key sets, specially designed sockets, and a universal locker removal tool. These tools are not readily available to the public, so you may struggle to source them yourself.
Besides, it takes considerable experience to be able to use some of these tools effectively, so we would advise against trying to remove them on your own.
