    Its hardly rocket science. I know of 3 very commonly used places for locking wheel nuts. And simple fact of it is, everyone will keep them in the car because u never know when ull need it. Furthermore, id like to think ur alarm would be going berzerk by the time someones tried to get the locking wheel nut out the car

    Every car manufacturer I've come across, the locker is in the boot, either in a side compartment or under the matt.
