    Lost my locking lugnut key

    I have a set of gorilla lug nuts with one key(well now none). Needless to say I left the key on the lugnut and drove off, fucker just blends in with my wheels. I noticed my lugs have a serial number or something on them wondering if I can just contact gorilla and get a new key. Anyone ever have this problem. I know when I first got my car i did not have one that fit the factory lugs, but i did have the id card that had the the number to call to get a new one. Think it cost like $25 to get a new one. Anyone have this problem?

    i lost my lugnut key when i had my 95 firebird. i just took a pneumatic jackhammer to it(dont know hte proper name for it, its about the size of an impact gun, and hooks up to an airhose). but you have to be careful, if you slip you end up running it across your rim. i would recommend picking up a kit.

    If you have the ID card with the key number, they will be able to send you a new one. My BF had that problem and after several tire shops and various other people telling him there was no safe way to get them off that wouldnt damage the wheel, he found the key ID card and called Gorilla. They can't really help you without that number though. They make too many keys to know which one will fit and they don't keep that info in their computer system.

    Yep, find that card and call them up.. I think it was 10.50 for the key shipped.. unless you got 2 and overnight shipping like I did.. then its 51.. (gave one to my g/f ^ in case another tire shop forgets to give mine back again...) Good luck.
