LOCK AND WHEEL NUT

What is a Lock and Wheel Nut?

Lock and Wheel Nut is the tool required to remove the security locking nuts fitted to your vehicle's wheels. The term 'Lock and Wheel Nut' is actually incorrect but used widely (this term is a malapropism; incorrect wording which sounds like the correct words). The correct term is 'Locking Wheel Nut' or, more precisely, 'Locking Wheel Nut Key'.


The Lock and Wheel Nut comes in various styles, but most look similar in exterior design. They're often made from Steel and Cylindrical in shape, generally approx. 4 cm in length and 2 1/2 cm wide. One end of the Lock and Wheel Nut is hexagonal in shape (six-sided) and
