GBMUD Posted March 8, 2006 Share Posted March 8, 2006 The Freelander from hell came fitted with locking wheel nuts when I bought it. Trouble is, it did not come with a key. They were the cylindrical type with two semi-cylindrical grooves cut into them. The key being female with bits sticking out of the inside to locate and turn the nuts. I will not say how I did it (Although I can not imagine I would be able to teach a theif anything) but it took about 10 seconds to remove each nut using only the tools that I usually carry. Not so secure were they? I have fitted the cheapest ones I could buy as replacements but, assuming you wanted to secure your wheels (Simex on Matt Lees are not cheap!), what would you reccomend - short of chainging them on when you leave the car?
