Name this locked lug

Does anyone know what kind of Lug Lock this is, and does anyone have the key? Or is it one of those kinds that you'd need a serial number in order to be able to provide the right key?

The lug has a tin cap that looks just like a regular alloy capped lug nut, but it is removable, then it has these outer teeth that I'm assuming the key would link up with? You basically have to tap them to know which one is the locking one.

Let me know if you'd be willing to sell it.

Thanks!

I used to have the fake cap wheel locks but it didn't look anything like that. Mine looked like all the others people have. This is weird for sure!

Yeah, trying to help out a fellow Hoboken-ite. He has a slow-ish air leak but the lug key didn't come with the truck.

I doubt you'll find a key for it as all the lug keys are unique. I've had several sets of these and they have all been unique to each set:

That looks more like the standard locking lug (similar to what I had without the cap). The one Horsey posted looks different.

That's an odd one. Chances are you will need to pound a large torx bit or tripple-square in there and get them off that way.

Sorry.

Why would anybody sell a truck without the key for that. I bet it is in one of the seat pockets or somewhere in the truck. If it came from a dealer I would be pissed. Maybe you could track down the previous owner.....

Yeah, right? I forgot to look in his seat boxes, but I'm assuming he has looked in there, as he knew an amp wasn't in there (we were comparing trucks). When he saw my lug lock set/box, he was surprsed what it looked like, so I'm assuming he has not seen it around before.

We get a lot of new purchase 90s with wheel locks and no "key". Major PITA, but you'd be surprised how many people have no idea where their wheel lock keys are.

Excellent suggestion to search the entire car though. Hopefully you will be lucky. Over the years I have collected a lot of the "keys", but I don't have anything that looks like that.

Each wheel had one.

Man, I was really hoping that'd be it, but I was looking around on there, and none appear to be what he has, but I appreciate the effort!

I know what I posted was different but it was just to illustrate that these things are uniquely keyed, so I assume finding a key for it would be nearly impossible unless he had a serial number for them. I think he'll have to check out one of those vids above or talk to a locksmith.

If you have enough clearance beat an old long reach socket over the end and remove like wheel thieves do!

It's hard to tell exactly what it looks like, but you might just be able to run an east-out extractor down the center and back it out. I did one once where I had to get a large easy-out and cut the end off to get it to go far enough into the locking nut to get bite.

Can you just drill it out? then replace the stud when the wheel is off? Also they make some MASSIVE reverse threaded stud removers..or just just a hammered in torx.

I might be in the same boat as the above mention member. No key in removing these wheel locks.

Find a tight fitting socket, pound it on with a hammer and twist it off with a ratchet. That is what Husky brand sockets are good for.
or
Weld a nut to the top and use a good socket and remove it. You don't need to destroy the stud or the wheel removing it.
