    wouldn't that sort of defeat the purpose?

    LOGIC? You seriously want to invoke logic in a conversation about fake hijackings, missiles hitting the pentagon, and bombs planted throughout the world trade center? I thought it was a given that logic was checked at the door when entering one of these threads.

    They make a special socket just for this. It will ruin the locks though. Most any wheel shop should have one and I believe Advanced sells them.

    I'd like to know what the point is of wheel locks if there is a device out there that you can use to remove them......

    If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it, does it really make a sound?

    there are a few different universal sets out there. the point is that its more of a pain in the ass to get them off (takes more time switching sockets) plus, the person would have to know which set you have to find the right socket....

    you can also get a lock set similar to your and hammer the lock on and take the lug off.
