HOW MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF LOCKING WHEEL NUTS ARE THERE?

Updated: Nov 23, 2022

Locking wheel nuts come in various designs. Although there are three main manufacturing styles of locking wheel nuts, there are literally thousands of different locking wheel nut combinations available. Each different locking wheel nut combination requires a special locking wheel nut key to ensure that without this special key the wheels cannot be simply removed and stolen.


We're specialists in the identification of Locking Wheel Nuts and are APPROVED suppliers of Genuine Locking Wheel Nut Keys. Unlike main dealers, we DO NOT require the locking wheel nut security code! Click here to order your replacement locking wheel nut key


Our guide below explains the three main types of locking wheel nuts fitted to vehicles.


Type 1 | Keyed Head Locking Wheel Nuts/Bolts

Keyed Head Locking Wheel Nut

The majority of locking wheel nuts have a keyed head to the locking wheel nut. The locking wheel nut key shares this same keyed security pattern which slots into the keyed head of the locking wheel nut



Type 2 | Rotating Collar Locking Wheel Nuts/Bolts

Rotating Collar Locking Wheel Nut

This type of locking wheel nut has a rotating collar which is designed to spin around the wheel nut preventing its removal with any other tool other that the correct matching locking wheel nut key



Type 3 | Sheer Head Locking Wheel Bolts

Shear Head Locking Wheel Bolt

Sheer head bolts are found typically on Peugeot and Citroen vehicles. This type of bolt is designed to “sheer-off” if any tool other than the matching locking wheel nut key is used in an attempt to remove it.



We can identify your locking wheel nut for you, simply follow our Step by Step guide below:
