    Default is there such a thing as a master locking wheel nut socket?

    Car was in stealers today for service (now theres another story) anyway, left locking wheel nut socket on passenger seat, when i got home wne to put said socket back in little box it lives in and there was another one already in there
    managed to get them mixed up , so tried them both and they both fit.
    All i can asume is they did not see my one and got another then placed it back in the wheel nut box in the boot?
    it there such an animal??

    Vauxhall dealers have a master set which contains 1 example of all the different numbers of locking wheel nut socket. My local dealer has helped me on a few occasions with cars at work where they've lost theirs and I need to get wheels off for servicing. I just take the car down, they give me the kit and I nip outside to the car and try each one til I find the right one. I then remove all the locking wheel nuts, take the kit back in, order the specific numbered socket at the parts counter and recharge the cars user
