wheel lock nut remover

I've lost the special nut to open my wheel nuts.
Does anyone know the easy way to open it? or is there any special tool to do the job?
I have asked the dealer and they'll charge me $160 for labor only!!!

Re: wheel lock nut remover

Use large (king) size or (if that doesn't fit) the sumo size gator grip socket does it easy with no damage see http://gator-grip.com/ and http://gator-grip.com/sumo_gator_images.htm

Re: wheel lock nut remover

Get a multi hex socket the same size as the wheel nut, be prepared to destroy the socket and smack it on with a hammer then undo.

Re: wheel lock nut remover

Futura,
whilst i echo your sentiment, lets face it, security devices are only there to deter the reasonably honest.
