Locking Wheel Nut


 Share

Recommended Posts


Need some ideas fellas gone to take a wheel off and the garage has rounded off the holes for the key so ideas please

Having spent some time working in different garages and seeing this problem several times I can only tell u what i tried and had success with.

Depending on the type of locking nut, u have a few options. The first one i would try is to find an old double hex socket that is smaller than the size of the locking nut and batter it on with a hammer and then try turning it.

Other methods i have tried involved a hammer and chisel to make a flat screw type slot and then use an impact driver to try to slacken it off. Finally its down to drilling and a small chisel until u can get the wheel off which can be messy and time intensive.
