    $25 bucks though... Ouch!

    I need to chain the next lug nut key I get to my truck.

    I will go with this @tomwil if there are no other ideas.

    Thanks!

    How about a pair of vice grips and steel post like from a floor jack that's hollow? It will be slow but it will get it off. Or just go to a tire shop and have them remove that one nut, they usually keep a spare of every key.

    Grind in two flat spots and use some good locking vice-grips.

    You could try vice grips, or hammering a socket onto the lug nut and twist it off.

    Go to a local big name tire store. Tell them you need the locks removed and want to buy new ones.
    Most tire shops have a selection of keys they can try.

    If you have a welder, weld a nut or bolt to it. Preferably TIG.
