Lug Nut Wheel Locks for 2006

Do lug nut wheel locks really work and stop wheel/tire theft? I am looking at a set of Gorilla lug nut locks that have an outer spinning sheath........anyone else have them?

Yeah, I figure it would slow them down...but wondering if they are easy to get off. Seems that the right lug nut wrench might be able to "forcibly turn them".?

I have the Gorilla Locks with the spline key adapter. Pretty good design. If you don't have the spline key adapter you won't be getting those lugs off.

Total waste on money IMO. If they don't just steal your truck, usually an impact socket and BFH will spin them off no problem.

Im not sure if I have the gorrilla locks or not, but I know we tried to get them off by pounding a socket on them, and it didnt work. We tried for an hour. AND, as frustrating the dam "Key" is to use to get them off, Im thinking they keep the wheels as safe as anything else.

Use a slightly larger impact socket and pound it onto the lug with a BFH (big f***ing hammer). Attach wrench and turn. Tightening the other lugs a bit helps too. As mentioned previously, worked EVERY time for me. I've used regular sockets too but as you might guess, they tend to crack.

Oh and again, as mentioned previously, don't waste your money. If a thief wants them that bad, they'll just steal your truck anyway.

Like, the gang bangers in Charlotte drive around with pneumatic air wrenchs and shit? Me thinks someone is simply a malcontent. C'mon BB609, get real with us here. This isn't a H.S. auto shop.........

R.I.F. - Impact SOCKET.....which can be used on a regular socket wrench, Sport. They won't crack like a regular socket will, hence an impact.

Do you guys live under a rock or something? No one here has heard of doing this before???? Serious.

FWIW, In the case of my wheels, the socket that fits the lug, is too large to fit into the holes in the wheels.
