Locking Wheel Nuts

Unfortunately many car owners end up damaging the wheel nuts or the keys by accidentally tightening them too much. Once the key becomes damaged you need a professional technician to remove it. Whether you have damaged, lost or misplaced your locking wheel nut, we can help. Most of the keys are made using thin mild steel, when put under extreme pressure the metal can start to distort and cause they key to do the same, in turn becoming unusable. In this case you will require a professional to carry out the removal for you.

You can often get a new locking wheel nut from the vehicle manufacturer if you have the unique code. However, in the case the locking wheel nuts were over tightened, the new key may not work. A new set of locking wheel nuts could be required, especially in cases where they have been over tightened, the threading on the bolt or nut can end up stretched making the wheel nuts unsafe for reuse.
