      Any tire store should have that tool.

      I'll never understand how people manage to lose the keys to these things. I mean, you just put it in the glovebox and it stays there...

      A coworker bought a used car and didn't know what "that thing" was, so she threw it out.

      ive had some people tell me i could beat them off, will that damage anything?

      Only do it once they get the wheels off. As far as damage, I guess it really depends on how you were raised.

      ANY FIX-A-FLAT place can get wheel locks off. Wheel locks are very easy to remove for someone who knows how to do it...like the guys at any fix-a-flat or tir repair center.

      Those are the exact same lugs that were on my civic when I bought it. A 7/8 impact socket and a hammer fixed 'em good.

      Those look like you could probably get them off with a 12pt deep-well socket

      I'm telling you that that tool is common. Any tire store will have it!
