Each locking wheel bolt has a keyed pattern on the head of the bolt which the matching locking wheel nut key fits into. As a secondary security measure, these later designed BMW locking wheel bolts also have a rotating collar/washer which prevents a thief from gripping the locking wheel bolt. This ensures that the locking wheel bolt can only be removed with the correct matching BMW locking wheel nut key. We require the image to be taken close-up and straight-on, similar to the image below, so that we can see the security pattern on the face of the bolt clearly. The locking wheel bolt key engages into this security pattern.
