Does anyone have a kit to remove the locking wheel nuts off my 90?

I just used a chisel and a harmer
Then replaced the locking nuts with standard wheel nuts, didn't fancy fighting with the locking bit in the field

Will this work on the round ones with rotating sleeve and the 3 holes in? I might try it with a punch pointed into the holes. Maybe wait until the morning when I can see what I am doing too.

I would happily pay £20 for that set, but will it work on loose sleeves?

I just worked on the holes, came off pretty easy
I believe it is the method of choice of wheel thieves

My locking wheel nuts have 3 holes in. Dont remember if its got loose sleeves.

You're welcome to try my key if you're not keen on chiselling

There are a number of different types out there. It's basically a nut jam packed with pins which move back and forth. They will move to match the holes / cuts and it should work? Not sure what yours look like but I reckon it would work on a 120s

For the sake of £20 it is worth finding out if they work I guess. I'm not sure if someone else's key would work..? Again, might be worth a try before I go down the brute force and ignorance route.

I ended up driving round the back of the local Toyota dealership and got it sorted for £20 :)
