Default HELP! : Anyone Recognize this wheel lock?!

This wheel lock is on some ls mesh wheels from a car i just got recently. The guy doesn't have the lock for it and he doesn't know where it's from. Can anyone tell what this is and where i can get a key for it or just how to get it off?

if you cant find the wheel lock you can use an air chisel to get the lock off...

Its a GATOR, wheel lock. Rim shops don't usually sell just the lock key, then try and make you buy the whole lug set. I don't know how much the set costs, but it does come with that key.

If you can't fiind one. I wouldn't use a chisel. I would use a impact socket that is too small, beat it on there, then take it off.

A slightly smaller 12 pt chrome socket or stripped bolt/nut socket will work well also. Looks like you have enough room to get any of the mentioned tools on the lock. Definately stay away from the chisel if you don't want to mess up the rims.

Also don't waste you time with ratchets if you have access to an impact gun.

well yeah, definitely don't wanna scratch up the rims, don't really care bout the lock though, i might check out some shops and take a look a GATOR wheel locks mentioned above and see if they're the same one.. . if not then i'll probably use the smaller socket and see if i can get it off.. . would prefer findin the lock key though.. .

As stated above, get yourself a cheap socket that is just too small and hammer it on, then impact it off. Don't use a good impact socket, just get a cheapo from the parts store.
