Craftsman 3pc flip socket set was a savior w/ broken wheel lock!

This craftsman 3pc flip socket set saved the day!!!!

My wife came home from work 1 day and says, "I think my brakes are bad". After taking it for a ride I realized she completely ignored the squeeking and waited to tell me when they were GRINDING! LOL! Needless to say I ran out at 7pm and got new pads and rotors, get home, jack the car up, take out the old four way with the wheel lock key, and CRAAAAACK! Mother loving, son of a gun, couch sitting, piece of shnitzel! Thats exactly how it came out... I swear! lol. The wheel lock key broke.

Next up, the old hammer a smaller socket on.... nope, just broke the outter ring on the lock and just turned and turned forever. Sooooooo, now what? Run to Sears, 10 minutes before closing time, just to see what my options are, and I just happen to spot this "stripped lug" socket set! Wow, genius! Get it home and (even though the directions say not to) gave it a few "love taps" while turning it on the lock, EUREKA! It's off. Run around the car and in under 10 minutes I had the other 3 wheel locks off....And then... run around the car for 10 minutes claiming personal inteligence and taking all the credit from Craftsman! lol.

Anyways, I highly recommend just having this set in the garage, or, even in the car, because there would be nothing worse than getting a flat somewhere and have your wheel lock key snap.

Note: When I said I gave the socket a few love taps, that was literally! The directions say not to hit it with a hammer but those locks were some high grade iron but DO NOT sit there and take your broken wheel lock/stripped lug anger out the socket because you will put yourself in a worse position.

Thanks for listening and I hope this helps someone someday!

Sincerely,

NOMO LOCKS

Worked well on McGard wheel locks

I saw some of the bad reviews but still took a chance and bought it, and I'm glad I did! (let's face it - if you're resorting to using anything outside of the supplied key for the wheel lock you know it's not going to be an easy job in front of you) This craftsman set was able to remove two stuck on wheel locks that a total of 4 replacement McGard keys couldn't budge without destroying the keys (which is what happens when an ignorant garage tech with an air impact wrench stupidly tightens wheel locks with it). Now it wasn't easy...my electric impact wrench with the craftsman tool couldn't loosen the wheel lock, but my 2 foot 1/2" breaker bar with A LOT of persistence did the job on both stuck wheel locks. Sure, using a 12pt. socket just smaller than the wheel lock would ultimately have worked also, but the craftsman set was much easier than going through the trouble with the smaller socket method.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Works great

I use these in the auto shop all the time when a wheel key breaks or a customer forgets their lock. Stick a 1/2" chrome extension in there(not impact, they are thicker and don't fit properly in the small size) Hit these on pretty firmly with a hammer, with a hammer then pop it off with a breaker bar. I've found that the vibrations of an impact tend to actually break the contact between these and the lug vs. breaking the lug off the car. Lifetime warranty too. Can't complain!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

A must have for a Mechanic

If you have a repair shop, you must have this tool. There's a lot of cars that come in without their wheel lug lock key. I highly recommend this tool.

Great tool, if you are smarter than you tool that is.

I have noticed a lot of people complaining about the use of this item.  It is only due to there incompetence on how to properly use the tool.  Working in the automotive field and having to remove over 100 wheel locks and lug nuts, I found the tool to work great.  The main problem they are having is that you have to tap it on to the lug nut/wheel lock to get the grooves to bite.  Yes, they will wear down, commonsense will tell you that, its like complaining that your hack saw blade went dull.  This tool is more for the professional, or some one that understands a smooth surface of a wheel lock won't provide a bite for this tool unless you tap it on with a hammer.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

just use a socket

dont waste your money on this item. the metal is not very good quality and on the first use the socket stripped out. there was more metal from the socket on the lug nut than metal from the lug nut on the socket. if you need to get a stripped lug nut off, or one you lost the key for like i did, then the BEST way to do this is take a 12pt socket that is almost large enough to fit over the lug and tap it on with a hammer. once its on use a breaker bar or impact to remove the lug nut. I spent over an hour with this product and could not even get 1 lug nut removed, out of the 4 i needed to remove. i went and got a 13/16 12pt deep well socket and tapped it on the lug. Just out of curiosity i even used a torque wrench to remove the lug, wanted to see if it was rusted on. not to my surprise it only took about 110ft lbs to remove, not much at all. had all 4 lugs removed in 30 mins, hardest part was tapping the lug out of the socket after it was removed from the car. spend your money on a socket set, and not this junk. if you need one of these buy a different brand, ive heard irwin/hansen makes a good quality lug remover.
