Nightmare.... HELP!

I've lost the cursed tool for the locking wheel nuts.
I can't determine if this is a genuine Suzuki locking-nut or an aftermarket one - perhaps someone here can? (The outer part spins)

So, Im looking for a replacement tool OR four alloy wheel nuts (19mm) to replace those I'm about to destroy removing them.

Can anyone here help please?

How I would get that off. Find a socket that just fits over it. With a drill bit that fits inside the drive square nicely so 12mm for half inch or 9.5mm for 3/8 use the socket as a guide to put a decent sized dimple in the centre of the lock nut. Now you have two options. Either drill a hole sufficient to use a large screw extractor if you have some. Alternatively drill and tap a thread into the end then use a suitable nut and bolt to lock the bolt to the wheel nut and undo. Both require patience and some slightly involved tools but both will get the locks off without ripping the wheels to bits with slipping drills or grinding.

I looked at that Riccy, if you count the points on mine it has 7, that one has only 6

I also found this - darned pricey but even from this I couldnt see one that was exact...
various tool patterns



7048 looks like it would be the one BUT the outer parts are square, not round like mine :(

The other way is to weld a nut on top of the locking wheel but, I.e. weld through the centre of the added nut...

Wandered off for a bit... ;)

The problem with these is that the Suzuki locks outer is able to rotate so the socket type removers have nothing to bite into. I found that out the expensive way.

I see what you're saying Lambert. Screw extractors arent great and if I snap one of those off inside the nut Im down to grinding out even harder metal - I know because a friend of mine did this on a Jet engine out in Bahrain. I spent a day out in the heat and sun grinding the extractor away.

My thoughts were that if I could get the spinning outer part off which I think I can do with a Dremel, then smack a socket or an Irwin bolt extractor over the rest of it and undo it that way. I've got some of the Irwin extractors one of which might just go on with the outer spinning bit removed

Irwin tool

I could try welding a nut on - Good idea!

However if I can't get the correct tool to save the locking nuts, I need new nuts to replace the four that get trashed...

Which brings me back to my original question..... Can anyone help out with the four standard pattern alloy-wheel nuts (19mm) please?
