All my customers get Gorillas on their vehicles. I use # 91187bc fpr the lugs and 71681nbc for the locks.

I just opened a package and walked out in the shop... they do not come off without the key.

Yea, you don't have the "locks" but rather lugs that have a key. Gorilla locks are not going to come off with a socket.

I know mine certainly wouldn't. I didn't purchase my Jeep with Gorilla locks, but when they swapped the chrome out for black like I'd asked, the Sidebiters wouldn't accept the stock lugs. So they threw the gorilla set on instead, but forgot to tell me, and forgot to put the key in the Jeep.

I figured it out a week or two later when I went to pull the spare off to install the bump stop extensions. That was fun trying to figure out which key I needed. The service manager wasn't very happy with the tech that did the wheel swap, but we finally found the right one after a few tries.

Or an air hammer! I have had to do that for so many customers over the years that buy a used vehicle, and look no key.

I guess lol I always put the one of the stickers in the glove box with the serno and the other one on my tool box so if I lose the key or anything I can get a spare one

I can get them off in under a minute now. They are the biggest waste of money, and the only person they will stop is you...by breaking when you least need them to. Remove them ASAP and either put on a regular lug or a gorilla lock. Thieves don't even bother breaking them off like I can, they have the master key aka dealer key.

I bought the smaller diameter Gorilla lock nuts to fit my Rugged Ridge wheels. I bought the set of 20 and a set of 5 so that all of my lug nuts are locking. I bought through Summit Racing after first calling Gorilla to get their dealers list. You have to order through one of their dealers to get them to set it up with Gorilla to match the sets. I wanted the special socket and lug nuts to match for all 25 so that I can carry one socket in the Jeep and keep one in my shop. That also leaves me with two spare lug nuts, as I only need three for the spare. They must have a mistake in their catalog, as the set of 5 with the socket was way cheaper than it should have been. I could have ordered 5 sets of 5 with 5 sockets for way cheaper than the set of 20 with one socket, but I didn't want to cheat them.

I just put my stock wheels/tires on for the winter. I use one locking Mopar lug nut on each wheel for these, along with the stock lug nuts.

Yep. Vise grips will do it. Hammer & chisel will do it. 12 pt socket will do it.

I've done it.

Put those pieces of junk in a zip lock bag & use them as a shot put.

Before I just have two sets of the Mopar wheel locks(two different lock heads) and I just recently got the Gorilla 23 piece acorn set. Basically I'm going to put 3 different locks on my tires. I'm gonna paint the Mopar one's to match the Gorilla's lol.
