Locking wheel nut

Missing locking wheel nut key

If you lose your locking wheel nut key, you will not be able to remove the wheel from your car. This is important in the case of a flat tyre and a need to replace it with a spare on the road or at home. A specialised recovery operator might have a right key for your car but it is not guaranteed.
