So, I lost my thing to pop the lugnuts off, since I'm trying to take my wheels off. What the hell do I do? Thanks! :cowsmile:

Well, I'm not sure what your "thing to pop the lug nuts off" is, but if you're referring to the wheel locks, get a craftsman (so you can return it for a new one) socket that is just over sized and hammer it onto the lug nut. You'll ruin both the wheel lock and the socket (which is why I suggest a Craftsman) but you'll then be able to get onto it with a big ol' ratchet and go to town. Just make sure you don't hit your rims with the hammer in the process.

Then again this may be a useless reply if I'm totally wrong about what you need to do.

Use a Craftsman because it's cheap. I don't recommend trying to warranty it because it will be abused. This is why many companies, Craftsman included is getting so strict on their warranty/exchange policies.

There are sockets made just for removing locks. There is a downside. If they are recessed into the wheel, the removal socket might be too thick.

If they are exposed, go to the hardware store & get some 9/16 or 5.8 head nuts. Go to a muffler shop & weld them to the locks. Use the nut to spin them off.

Yo Elvis, glad you figured your dilema out. Are you going to be at the BBQ on Sat?

I don't know. I work at 6 on Saturday, so if I get out on time I might swing by for a bit! :)
