Where to find tool?

I am in need of a lug nut extraction tool to get off my security lugs. I somehow lost the key for it and now I am stuck without access to remove my wheels. The tool I am looking for is a socket with reverse self tapping threads inside it. Thanks in advance for any input.

Jeff

Take a 3/4 in deep socket with a extension on it and hammer it onto the security lug. Then remove, no need for a special tool

BTW you owe me 22.50

Or stop by the local tire shop...most tire specialty stores/installers have several keys.

Next best thing that you should always have- the bolt extractor kit. Mine is a irwin I believe. It is made for removing bolts that are rounded. They will not strip and have saved me a few times.

Snap On has them. Check their website item # TSR600. I dont know if that's the exact size you need but I'm sure they have it. Good luck.

My spare had a security lug on it and ofcourse the key was no where to be found.I took my grinder and flatsided the lug in 2 spots and took it off with a crescent wrench.

You might give "spline" lugs nuts a thought, instead of key/locknuts

They take a special tool to install/remove and you can keep that with your onboard tools !!

Got the problem solved. Went to the local Sears and got a kit that is designed for removing rounded lug nuts. Works great. Now I have a new tool to carry around. Woohoo!!

Glad you got the problem solved Jeff. You do realize that since you bought a cool new tool the key will show up tommorrow don't you? But like you said, now you have a new tool to carry around!

That happened to me. I lost the key for my wheels looked for days and couldn't find it. I went to a tire shop and they removed the locks with some kind of tool. Cost me $60 to get it done. Went home and found the key under the drive seat under the carpet.
