Locking wheel nuts


Recommended Posts

Hi all.

Just bought my wheels and tyres along with locking wheel nuts.

Not at all impressed with the nut design as I could have them off in seconds with a Stilson.

Has anyone seen a really good design anywhere?

I've had a search which found a couple of threads on the subject but with the general acceptance that nothing worked.

It must be possible to design something with a conical head which you can't get a wrench on. I accept that you will not stop someone with a welder.

Who was it who wanted to know what they should make in their new engineering business?

Yes they look fine in there but I'm using steel wheels so have no nice cast hole to hide them in.


makes you wonder why there aren't steel wheels out there with a protuding tube or tubes around the holes (no jokes now) to give this advantage. Maybe you could weld your own on? i'm not going to patent this idea so if anyone wants to...
