    Looking for some help with these locking wheel bolts. Had some work done and looks like someone stuck them on with an impact wrench and has destroyed the clover shaped pattern on the socket used to remove the bolts. If anyone can identify these it would be a great help. Hopefully I can contact the manufacturer and get a new socket.

    Here is the Bolt heads:

    Hopefully you've got the original packaging that came with them, as this has the unique code number printed on with details on getting a new key/ socket. There will be thousands of combinations of pattern, so without this number, you wont get a replacement.

    No replacement numbers as the wheels were fitted with the lockers so never got any packaging. I assumed the Key would have a number stamped on it, but nothing.
