LOCK NUTS, lost key

Post by vanner065 on 3/10/2011, 1:58 pm

I have lock nuts on my dragways and have lost the key, they have 3 offset holes in them that the key fits into, i have tried vice grips but no luck, anyone got any suggestions?

Heard a story YEARSsss ago that if you grind a slot in them (across the centre) and use a hammer & chisel, they could break.
BUT i've never tried it myself. Not game enough to.

I've seen the Wreckers, sorry Recyclers, weld a nut onto them.

Just have to be careful not to get Splatter all over your good Alloy or Chrome rims.

Good Luck!
