ARE LOCKING WHEEL NUT KEYS UNIVERSAL?

Are Locking Wheel Nut Keys The Universal? The short answer is 'No'.


Each vehicle manufacturer installs different locking wheel nuts for each vehicle model. They're not interchangeable between different brands, so, for instance, you can't use a Ford Locking Wheel Nut Key on a BMW and vice versa. This is to ensure that no one can steal the wheels/tyres. The ‘Locking Wheel Nut Key' is the special tool required in order to remove the locking wheel nuts. The individual ‘Locking Wheel Nut Key’ is inserted into each of the locking wheel nuts, which can then be turned and removed. Once your vehicle service work is complete, the ‘Locking Wheel Nut Key’ is then used again to re-install and tighten the locking wheel nuts back on the wheels.
