Locking Lug Nuts & removal tool STC8843AA

Would anyone know if the tool for these nuts are the same in every set?

I bought a set from a lady, sight unseen, and what I received was 4 standard nuts & a tool. Once the sheet metal cover is placed over top the locking lug nut, they appear to be a standard lug nut. She got them from an estate sale and has no idea who has a set of locking nuts (5) on their rig & now has no removal tool.
She's in Virginia and I assume the rig with the locked up lug nuts are also.

I went through this with a friend a few years ago when we were trying to figure out how to get his nuts off...ahem

I couldn't find any keys, but you may have better luck. You can at least see if the pattern is the same, which I highly highly doubt they are.

I had this exact same thing happen to me when I purchased a set off ebay for my Audi. I contacted them, and they had another set they sent me at no charge.

But to answer your question, they "tool" (or lug key) is different for various sets...they essentially have a variety of these with various key configs (but they are not all different). I'd say there are probably half-dozen or so different configs, this is to deter thieves from just buying the locking lug set for the vehicle brand and having a field day.
