    I had wheel locks on another truck. They just took the truck. Then figured it out later. Guess they wanted them bad enough.

    They beat the crap out mine and got frustrated or scared off. It looks like they tried to hammer an undersized socket on the locks. Luckily, the dealer tightened the snot out of them. End result two new studs and new lock set.

    The other way is to tighten the non locking lugnuts and the lock will able to remove the lock. :(

    Or not hiding the key.. Leaving it in the vehicle (console or glove box) , its easy to pop the lock and get the key without alarm sounding.

    this is why i go for splined lugs. it would be a bitch to get all of them off with a regular socket.

    Has anyone ordered these wheel locks from SDHQ? Wondering what the black finish consists of and how scratch-resistant it is.
