“I lost my key for my factory original wheel lock!”

March 25th, 2010

Don’t worry! We can do this; we can find a way to unlock those expensive Cadillac Escalade EXT rims, okay? You’re gonna need:

1. Crazy glue
2. 1/2” socket set (an inexpensive one)
3. A sledge hammer that’s approximately 5 lb.
4. 1/2” Breaker Bar
5. One replacement wheel lock with a key (don’t lose this one!)

So first, you’re going to put the socket over the wheel lock and kind of determine a size that’s a little smaller than your original wheel lock. Then, you’re gonna want to push the socket on so you can be positive that it’s going to fit tight.

Next, grab the crazy glue and apply it inside of the socket & place the socket on top of the wheel lock. You’re going to have to get the sledge hammer to hammer the socket into its place. Make sure you go tight over the wheel lock, then let the glue soak in for like 10-20 minutes.

Get the 1/2” bar, place it on the socket, & turn it counterclockwise to the wheel lock can “break free”. When it’s off, put it to the side and just take off the remains.

After all that is done, install the new wheel lock & make sure that you don’t lose it this time; okay? If you just want to buy a whole new wheel, be sure to call us at 1-800-896-7467 or visit our website at OriginalWheels.com
