ARE WHEEL LOCK KEYS UNIVERSAL?

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


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


WHAT DOES A 'WHEEL LOCK KEY' LOOK LIKE?


There are literally thousands of different wheel lock keys. They come in various styles, but look similar in exterior design. They're often made from Steel and Cylindrical in shape - most are approx. 4 cm long and 2 1/2 cm wide. One end of the key is hexagonal in shape (six-sided) and
