Other Comments or Concerns
Toyota/Lexus and VW/Audi locking wheel nut key master sets are widely available, but Honda/Acura sets are not available. I can understand not selling these tools to the general public, but I believe that registered Security Professionals should be able to purchase these tools.

OEM response: Honda utilizes McGard wheel locks. Upon purchase the buyer receives a key and key code in the kit. This key and key code are to be kept by the customer. Please see attached documentation that accompanies each wheel lock purchase. Otherwise, only Honda and Acura dealers have master keys which can remove the wheel lock. Please let us know if you have any other concerns. Thank you. (See attached file: McGard Wheel Lock.pdf)
