Segments for wheels - choose the best - magazine driving

Protect the car from the stealing the wheels is called fastener under the non-standard key. And how to choose the right one? And will it be sense from him? In our examination, eight different types of secrets (bolts and nuts) on any wallet. More expensive - it means better? Check!

We naively thought that the times when "undressed" parked cars were forever remained in the past. No, history is repeated. Only rates grew up: not the wipers, but the headlights and wheels are removed. And if not everything with the headlights, then the "shoe" can save the wheeled secrets. At the very least, the thieves will add exactly. And there is a chance that they will go to seek prey easier.

We will understand which of the "secret" fasteners sold in the market is better than others to cope with their task.

Where to hide the key?

When buying a set of secrets, it is better to take the one in which a pair of keys. You can keep one or in the garage, and the second to carry with you. At the same time, it is extremely desirable not to store it in sight. There are cases when the wheel kidnappers first beat the glass in the hope that the key lies in the glove box. Do not store the key next to the cartoon: this is the second place where the thieves look. Sometimes they just pierce one of the wheels and watch from the side where the angry owner climbs to get the key and put the spare tire.

Simpler or styling?

When choosing wheeled secrets, many are wondering: what to do if the key is lost? Maybe buy something simple, succumbed to the usual screwdriver? But it's like locking the door and watch the key on the carnation! Secret fasteners should most resist hacking attempts - this is his main task. And the owner does not need to scatter the keys where it fell.

We decided to buy everything that the Moscow market offers. The restrictions were entered only for the sizes of the secret. Stopped on a popular group of cars on the platform in 0 - here include Logan, Sandero, Duster, Almera, Largus, Xray. The choice was not well: there were only eight suitable sets. Moreover, if six of them are bolts, then two other nuts. Why did you need nuts? Consider this optional proposal, and details - in the "Stilege" section.

The most expensive kit justified the price: it is the best for all items. The ring does not allow the secret of the gas key, the chisel also saved. Such fasteners are usually overwhelmed with welding or using an extractor inserted into the drilled hole. The low protrusions of the rings will not allow reliably to score a special puller - when trying to unscrew the secret, the tool turns out to be turned out.

Sellers of the secrets talk about the dominant of inexpensive Chinese products and about the almost complete absence of exclusive, difficult to open the secrets made by domestic crafts. Of the eight purchased sets, only six had packaging - two were sold simply in cellophane bags.

Zhuliki often use the so-called climbing method - they are lurpping with a hammer in the secrets, trying to weaken their tightening. Check if the method works. Tightening torque - 100 N · m. Knock the hammer in secret. After climbing, we measure the moment of unscrewing. It really decreased - up to 80 N · m.

We, as usual, expressed your opinion about each product. An explicit winner was the set of McGard Ultra High Security: it is much better than others resist hacking. And some secrets can be unscrewed almost a screwdriver.

By the way, the results of a survey conducted by us during the preparation of the material showed that most readers do not use the secret, because "still steal"! And only a third of the respondents said they always use the branded "secret" fasteners. Apparently, while the thunder is not bored - the man will not cross.

Tips Novikom

  • Having gathered to the store, take a native wheelbolt with you. If you use different wheels in winter and summer, then the bolts may vary - grab both. This will help to navigate not only with the size of the fastener, but also with the type of pairing with a specific wheel disc (cone or sphere).
  • The presence of deep code elements on the "secret" fasteners is, as a rule, about low quality metal. That is, the manufacturer fears that small elements will not stand the proper tightening. But deeply easily falls away with an autopsy.
  • Protect steel discs is usually more complicated than cast. Access to fasteners is not difficult, so attackers silently twist the secrets with a gas key. But, on the other hand, the "steel" hunters are much smaller.
  • If you install two secrets to each disk, it will not allow the Warmer to use the method of having adjacent bolts to weaken the tightening force of the secret.
  • Often advise to tighten the "secret" fastener by incomplete. If the task is to facilitate the life of rises, then the meaning of this advice, of course, is. But the good-quality secrets, as our tests showed, are calmly drawn by a regular moment, allowing several dozen cycles of curing and wraping.
  • Stiletto's secret nuts have a greater height than bolts, and on the steel disk will hang hard. Therefore, it is better to install alloy wheels on the hubs with studs (from the point of view of protection).
  • The most advanced thieves make the cast with the "secret" wheel fastener. Track that it happened on your car will help the simplest nozzles from the threaded part of the plastic bottle and tube neck. Did you find that the plug disappeared? It is not excluded that your wheels are interested. Among other things, such caps will help to contain secrets clean.
  • The real influence on the wheel balancing of the secret does not have, as they are located near the center of rotation. For reference: the mass of a regular wheelbolt in our case was 69 g, and the mass of each of the secrets is indicated in the description.
  • The operation of the car at least without one wheel bolt (nut) is prohibited. Do not be lazy before the trip to take a quick look fasteners.

HAIRPIN

If the wheels are fastened with nuts, not bolts, it is more convenient to mount them: sticking studs help quickly install the wheel in a right place, since it is much easier to orient. Therefore, when replacing regular bolts, many people prefer to screw into the hub with a pin, putting it on the threaded anaerobic adhesive sealant.

Information for reflection. On the editorial machine, the secret served for more than eight years. During this time, the standard nuts have a deformation of the conical part, and she is still a mustache. Moral: Do not believe the fairy tales that all the secrets are "disposable".

Friends, hello to everyone. Working with automotive accessories, and hearing the same questions day after day, the idea came to publish small reviews on some types of accessories.

For the first review, it was decided to choose the wheeled secrets, because There are their huge number, then understand the nomenclature of an unprepared person is hard enough. In the network, of course, there is a large number of reviews and discussions, but most often they are sharpened under some particular manufacturer or store, which, that is quite natural, make the focus on their assortment.

It was often necessary to hear that the times when the cars were "delivered" in the past. In fact, today this kind of "business" is flourishing. Usually thieves remove the wheels from cars with the purpose of their further sale. And with the development of the Internet, everything has become even easier - thieves are postponed on the sale announcement of selling at rushing prices, often even with photographs. Sometimes they steal "to order" - under the specific car model.

At the same time, the standard VAZ "stamping" on 13 "and 14" radius steal only if, the money is very necessary and the car is essentially thrown in an affordable place. And the professional stealing of the wheels begins with 16 "and above the diameter. Because Even the simplest new casting in the 16th "diameter will cost at least 20,000-25 000 rubles. For the kit. Sell ​​stolen of course very cheaper, but the loss of the owner does not decrease from it.

According to statistics, the main victims of the wheeled thieves are the owners of the Middle Price segment, which decided to acquire new discs and tires and not affecting the means of their protection. Because Remove the wheels without a secret very simple: thieves put under the thresholds of the spacer machine and descend the tires, as a result - the wheels are moving to the new owner.

If the secrets are available, then there are also options for removing. Thieves evaluate the secret: whether there is a rotating ring, is there a good protective drawing, whether the steel is normal, if not, the extractor with a screw-like cutting is taken, it is taken on a secret bolt or nut, after which it is simply unscrewed. If the steel is good and there is a ring, then the task is more difficult, the ring is trying to split. Here the Warr has already been concerned.

Often you can hear the view that if your wheels want to remove, then no secrets will prevent. But this is not entirely true, because In order to unscrew even one secret bolt on each wheel, the attackers will need significantly more time and effort, while the account goes for seconds. Accordingly, choosing between a car with secrets and without them, the usual thief is guaranteed to choose the second one. Thus, by installing the secret, we switch the attention of the thief from our car to the neighbor's car.

Before buying, the main thing is to correctly navigate in the diversity of the consumer market. After all, various models of the secrets have different properties, in addition, despite a certain reputation of the brands present in the market, it is necessary to pay attention not only to it, but also on a specific model series.

To begin with, we give a list of the most popular in the Russian Federation of secret fasteners (for the world, USA, Asia and Europe, the picture is different, but we are primarily interested in the Russian Federation and the CIS):

• McGard - founded in 1964. Auto-producers provider: Aston Martin, Chevrolet, Datsun, Ford, Honda, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lexus, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Smart, Suzuki, Toyota, Volkswagen, Volvo. Production: USA / Germany • Farad - founded in 1978. Supplier of automotive conveyor: Fiat, Maserati, Volkswagen, Skoda, Audi. Manufacture: Italy • Heyner - founded in 2001. Head manufacturer Farad and Alca.production: Italy / Germany • FEBI - Founded in 1880. Production: Germany • BIMECC - founded in 1987. Production: Italy • Anmax - based in 2001.Production: PRC • Bantaj - based in 2010 year. Manufacture: PRC • Matrix - Production: PRC • SafeCar - Production: PRC (mimicry under Europe, trying to model Farad and McGard model) • Starleks - Production: PRC • Vector - Production: PRC

Next, consider the various designs of secret bolts and nuts of various manufacturers: from the simplest, to the most secure and methods of their unauthorized removal:

1. Simple secrets with the original pattern on the head of the bolt or nut and low quality steel.

You can buy such secrets on any market. The most fiscal option with a minimum level of protection. Category: from 200 to 1000r.Producers and series: Farad GalaxyLock / SiCukosmos, Heyner, Matrix, Bimecc, Starleks, Vector, Alca, Anmax, Bantaj, FEBI, Safecar

For unauthorized removal:

In the case of external installation on steel disks - a regular gas key is suitable, because The protrusions on the head of the secret will allow the key to firmly clinging. In the case if the wheels are cast, have planting wells for fasteners - a recreational head is used, which strikes a sledgehammer on the head of the secret.

2. More secure secrets with a pattern inside the head of the bolt or nut and medium quality steel.

An inexpensive option, with a slightly higher level of protection. Category: from 800 to 1500r.Producers and series: Farad Stil-Bull, Heyner Stilbull, Matrix Drinty

For unauthorized removal:

Thieves can use several different tools for hacking: in the case of external installation on steel disks - a gas key is suitable. In case the disks have planting wells for fasteners - a navel head is used, or an extractor (key of steel fingers are hidden inside, the remaining repeat patterns on Head of the Secret).

3. Secret tags with a narrow pattern in the head and high-quality steel.

A good option for disks that have in-depth seats for bolts and nuts. Sent category: from 1500 to 2500r.Producers and series: McGard Su / Sub, Sicutune (MicroLock)

For unauthorized removal:

In the case of external installation on steel disks - a conventional gas key is used to remove.

In case the wheels are cast, have planting wells for fasteners - unauthorized removal will be extremely difficult. • The narrow pattern of the secret will not allow the use of the extractor, because The fingers have a larger diameter and do not fall into the deepening. • High-quality steel of the secret will not allow the head of the nabber to crash into the metal. • Small gap between the wall of the well and the secret of the secret will not allow the Warmer to cling and the gas key.

4. Secret with a narrow pattern in the head, high-quality steel and a protective ring.

Fairly advanced secret

For unauthorized removal:

In the case of external installation on steel disks, the Wargo will have to tinker. A protective ring from high-quality steel revolves around the head. Even capturing the head, the gas key will simply rotate around it. In order to take a secret, first need to destroy the protective ring. For this, the bog is drilled between the head and the protective ring, and the high-quality steel drill is very difficult. Then the chisel is finally destroyed and the protective ring is removed. Next, the secret bolts and nuts are unscrewed by a gas key.

In case the wheels are cast, have planting wells for fasteners - it will be almost impossible to remove the secret.

5. Secretary of high-quality steel with a narrow pattern in the head, a protective ring hidden under the top of the secret head.

The most secure design is ideal for both cast drives with deepening for fasteners and for steel discs. Category: from 3000 to 4000r.Producers and series: McGard SL

For unauthorized removal:

Since the junction between the ring and the head is on the side and does not have external access. Trying to drill the head from above to get to the ring - meaningless because Make it is extremely difficult due to durable steel and special coating.

Such secrets are usually removed only in car services. The head is welded under the ordinary balloon key and then unscrew.

Intermediate conclusions. In order for the secret to really perform its functions, it must comply with certain requirements:

1. The key of the secret of the secret should approach standard balloon keys (in the perfect case turnkey for your usual fastener) Thanks to this, you will not experience difficulties in the selection of tools. Secret nuts and secret bolts on cast discs are in fastening wells. The gap between the head of the secret and the wall of the well is trying to make the minimum that does not allow to hook the head of the secret to the gas key. Therefore, the side walls of the key must be thin and very durable. A narrow slot of the head pattern, with a large number of combinations options. Protected from the use of the extractor, and the simple selection will become almost impossible. Even if there are all options, the bust takes a volatile amount of time. 4. The protective rotating ring, in the case of the gripping with a gas key, turns around the axis without allowing you to unscrew the secret. A rim on the head of the secret (only McGard) in the form of a fungus covering the rotating ring. Proteces from hacking in the joint area and dirt. High-strength steel construction. Settings from hardened alloy steel 46 - 54 HRC will reliably secure your wheels to the hubs, withstand large mechanical loads and resist the tools of the hacker. 7. The high-precision step of the thread of secret bolts and nuts according to the manufacturer standards will provide a uniform distribution of the clamp load when the wheel is installed.

TOTAL: The leader in the category of secret fasteners, without any doubt, can be considered a series of MCGARD SL. Remove such a secret without a key can only be on the equipped service - your wheels will definitely stay on your car!

Next (depending on the type and view of your disks) are located: Farad Sicustar / Starlock, McGard SU / Sub, Farad MicroLock and Heyner Stilblockpro. In the event that your discs have planting wells, you can safely put the secret fasteners of the series and sleep well at night, the chances of the fact that in the morning you will see your car on bricks, strive for zero.

As a rule, manufacturers of inexpensive secrets as defensive measures are used only by the complex form of profile. Unscrew most of them, even with the help of a standard tool. At the attackers, this is not bad with the help of end heads, "torks" and other keys in combination with a sledgehammer. So, all series: Farad Stil-Bull, Heyner Stilbull, Matrix Drinty, Farad GalaxyLock / SiCukosmos, Heyner, Matrix, Bimecc, Starleks, Vector, Alca, Anmax, Bantaj, FEBI and SAFECAR - It is a secretion of homeopathic, they only save them from Addicts with a balloon key.

P.S. The most frequent problem with the secret fastener: Lost the key or broken key / secret, what to do? In case of loss or breakage, the key can be restored from most brand secrets if there is a secret code (usually there is on the package) or prudently purchase a set with 2 keys (from There are no top manufacturers of such sets only at HEYNER.

But when damaging or losing the secret itself - it will not be able to restore it, because No manufacturer's plant has such a service, in theory you can try to choose a set with a similar secret code (the chance is extremely small, but sometimes the secrets of one batch have only 10-20 secret variations (manufacturers are really denying, but by experience, it can be said that This is not very frequent, but not very rare phenomenon, there are several videos on the network, where buyers say that when they purchase a secret with the same code).

And in order for neither the keys, nor the secret to break - there are rules of exploitation of secret bolts and nuts:

• twist the secret nuts and bolts are needed by a torque wrench, with a strengthem - 60-75nm. • Certically cannot be used a pneumatic tool. • When you remove the wheel, unscrew the secret fastener, then the bolts or nuts. • When installing the wheel, you first spin bolts or nuts, then - secret Fasteners • 20 minutes before the removal of the wheel disk - fasteners and secrets are recommended to wet the penetrating fluid WD-40. • After visiting a car service or tire, check the presence of a key from the secret. • Keep a special code from the packing liner of secret bolts. At the factory for this code, you can order a key duplicate; • If you operate your car on all-season rubber and do not change it for a long time, then at least once every six months should be unscrewed and twisted fasteners to avoid its "bipigation" to the wheel of the wheel .

Car thieves appeared not so long ago, but already delivered the hassle to motorists. If the radio tape recorders were pulled out and everything is valuable, now, when the inner part is protected, other parts of the vehicle are subjected to attacks. When gasoline is drained not so sad, of course, it is unpleasant, but much worse if the owner of the transport does not detect tires. That this does not happen, it is recommended to install only the best wheel bolts that cannot be unscrewed by the standard way.

The editors of the site "Yanashla" prepared for you the ranking of the best wheel bolts and the secrets for 2021.

Varieties of fasteners and features

The secret itself is an ordinary bolt or nut, the difference is only in the head, which has a unique shape. The mount is easily installed on various wheels instead of a regular bolt. In the set there are not only these elements, but also a special key that is capable of unscrewed them. Each size of the secret is unique, so it will not be possible to unscrew the product with a standard tool, even if it will have a small similarity.

Today there are 5 popular options:

  • Eccentric are a special recess in appearance resembling a hole. Also selling models of a more complex shape, while relative to the center of rotation, the hole is shifted.
  • Pershot - a popular variety, one or more special holes are located on the head. The special key with cylindrical protrusions is inserted into the inside, after which the product can be unscrewed.
  • Figure models are recess bolts. At the same time, the shape of such holes is unusual and often it is incorrect, as well as asymmetric, which is why it is not possible to choose the right key at the attackers.
  • Models are also sold, where additional slots are present, they are called accordingly. The element can be eaten out and embed into the fastener. In the latter case, it is difficult to guess that a person uses a similar design.
  • The latest models are combined. The peculiarity of this performance is that they combine several varieties of previous options, which makes them reliable and unique.

Some may think that such products are useless, as they can be captured by a powerful pipe key. However, not everything is so easy. Because high-quality products are equipped with protective sleeves that prevent it. After the fastener is twisted, the sleeve will start freely rotate, which will make access to the head difficult for those who have no appropriate key.

The reliability of the secrets themselves is repeatedly confirmed by various tests. Especially, if we talk about quality models. For their manufacture, a particularly durable steel or titanium alloy is used. The latter is rarely applied, as it has a high cost. In the basic configuration there are 4 secrets and the key, there is nothing superfluous.

Designations on the package

To find the desired detail without any problems, you should read a type marking. However, not all novice motorists are capable of it. In the manufacturer code there are 6 digits and several Latin characters. Deciphering all these readings is quite simple, you should only know:

  • The first digit indicates the model of the secret profile, as well as the working part of the key;
  • In the second digit, either 7 or 8 is indicated, they indicate the form of the bolt planting place, which may be conical (denoted by a seven) or hemispherical (indicated by eight);
  • The third digit indicates the main thread parameters;
  • The last three digits are the length of the thread. It is important to know that this parameter is indicated in inches;
  • Latin characters indicate the type of secret used.

To unmistakably determine the length of the thread, the person should multiply the three last numbers on 25.4. After that, he will receive an accurate result. Also during the selection it is impossible to forget about the shape of the planting wheel, it plays a key role during the choice of fasteners. It is important to understand that the models that are made with the hemispherical sphere or have a conical landing will be suitable for casting disks. But for stamped wheels, only products in the form of a cone are used, no other options are suitable here.

It should be mentioned about Latin characters that are decoded as follows:

  • SM - denotes a model with a universal landing place;
  • X - the key capture occurs only outside, and the product itself has a spinning sleeve;
  • KK - To unscrew the fasteners, the key with internal capture is used, the protective sleeve is not provided here;
  • SX - indicates the height of the head in 23 mm, the capture method is external;
  • EX - internal grip, but there is a protective sleeve.

If you plan to use similar fasteners on alloy discs, then no sleeve is needed here. Because the bolts are recessed without it in the rim and just do not get to them. If a person meets a model where there are no similar designations, then it is worth selecting those models that fully correspond to the original fastener, for this it is enough to unscrew it from the car and show the seller.

What are the methods for twisting wheels without a key

For greater efficiency, person should explore the principles of the work of attackers. Due to this, he will be able to unmistakably choose a qualitative option. There are only 5 main ways:

  • The first and most common - by force capture. To carry out this, you only need to use a powerful pipe key.
  • If it is found that the owner applies a non-standard nut, it is enough to fill the precipitated head, which is best suited in size. After the process was accomplished, the knob is inserted with a lever and a slight force tight connection is unscrewed.
  • When using curly slots, the attacker can score a fairly powerful screwdriver with a flat slot and simply turn it with the most common key. If the screwdriver is not, a sharpened hexagon is used, the result will be the same.
  • The easiest way is to tighten all the standard bolts as much as possible, after which the secret element weakens and unscrew it will not be much difficulty, since almost any tool is suitable for this purpose. The attackers often prefer this to theft exactly, as it allows everything without noise to remove.
  • The last method is rarely used in a crowded place, as it attracts users' attention. The principle of operation is that the tightening of the bolt is weakened due to the application of strong blows with a hammer or a small sledge hammer. In this case, the mechanical impact falls through the head itself.

Even if the outer ring is made in the form of a sleeve with small walls, it will not save the owner of the car. Because the outer part is easily broken up with a chisel. After that, the attacker gets access to the edges of the secret bolt, and it is possible to grasp them with a standard gas key.

What to pay attention to when choosing

To avoid the above problems, the element choose with maximum responsibility and know the correct criteria:

  • If you plan to make an order via the online store, it is important to pay attention to only verified details that have dozens of reviews. It is impossible to trust any dubious sites, since it will not lead to anything good.
  • When buying models for steel stamped discs, the best solution will be models having thick metal walls. No other products are better not acquired, as they are less efficient and easily wedged.
  • In order not to understand all the symbols, when buying in the store it is better to take the original bolt with you, this will allow you to compare the length and threads of fasteners. In cases where the machine uses two sets of wheels, but with different rims, it is recommended to buy elements for each set.
  • No less important criterion - manufacturing material. It is not recommended to buy products that are made of soft metal, since it is not difficult to break it. It is better to pay attention to solid options, even though they will cost more, but guarantee a person complete safety.
  • When buying in the store it is recommended to check whether to capture the fastener head with a standard or gas key. If it is easy to do, then it is better to refuse this option.
  • It is not necessary to acquire a product with a curly pattern, where a screwdriver is included without problems. Because it talks about zero reliability.
  • Products with incomprehensible symbols and unknown brands will not bring any benefit. It is important to trust only to proven companies that confirmed their favor.

All the described criteria protect only from 4 ways out of 5. After all, even if you choose a qualitative option, an attacker will be able to unscrew the bolt with a simple blink. But so that there is no such situation, it is recommended to use two secret fasteners on the wheel, or simply tighten all the bolts with the same force. Because it is not so convenient to move in the trunk for several keys, and if one of them rushes in the garage, additional problems will arise.

And the sellers' contingent is very specific - this is 90%, all sorts of declassified elements, like local, cutting homeless and drug addicts.

How to choose the best secrets for wheels

How to choose a secretFastening the automotive wheels, to the hubs, is carried out by bolts or nuts through studs. In the event that, the standard keys are not suitable for such bolts or nuts, they become secret and anti-theft. And most importantly, their purpose is not to prevent the car's hijacking, and it makes it difficult to make an illegal choice of wheels in an ordinary taxpayer.

The secrets are put only for them with a key, often licenseable, one product on the wheel, with minimally possible fasteners.

By configuration heads, they can be:

  • eccentric;
    • Internal and outer contours are shifted relative to each other;
  • asymmetric;
    • versatile, irregular polygons;
  • figured;
    • complex contours of arbitrary lines;
  • holes;
    • Several holes in the inner contour for the retaliatory protrusions at the key;
  • Combined.

To eliminate the possibility of using horn or gas keys, chisel and sledgehammer, the best samples of wheel secrets are completed with special shells. Which, with a tightened bolt or nut, has the ability to rotate freely, preventing power capture from the outside.

Secretakes on the wheels

Secret - Special devices in the form of a bolt with a unique shape of the head or non-standard nuts that help protect your car from what the wheels will remove from it without your knowledge.

It is incorrect to believe that those times, when often the thieves "destroyed" cars passed. Not. Until now, many car owners become victims of intruders. The wheels are removed to resell them. The fact that with the Zhiguli 13 "and 14" remove less frequently, and mostly, if much urgently need money. Models on casting diameter 16 "and more, more often steal" to order "for certain models.

How to protect yourself?

In order not to buy a new set of wheels, you can just put on discs Secret . If we compare the price of the secrets and the new set of tires with disks, then it is cheaper to immediately install the first.

But with the secrets, you can also remove the wheels, but it will be much more difficult. It will take much more time and strength, and if you break the items, then they will not be installed.

Before installing them, you will have to choose some model from the widest range in the current market.

Let's get acquainted with the species of secret:

one. Simple secrets, with the original pattern on the head of the nut from the steel of poor quality.

The level of protection of such models is minimal, but also the minimum price. Remove the wheels with such a secret fairly easy to gas key. If the casting is installed, then a navel head is used, hitting a sledgehammer, it hits the head of the secret.

2. The secret, the pattern of which is located on the inside of steel a little better quality.

Secretakes on the wheels. How to make the right choice?!
Secretakes on the wheels. How to make the right choice?!

To dismantle such models, a gas key may need (if external installation occurs); The naid head will only be needed if there are landing wells.

3. Secret tags having a narrow pattern made of good material.

It is best forces for tires with discs with a depression for heads. To remove the wheels on steel disks, it may only be necessary for the gas key. If you have fasteners' wells on casting, then it will be difficult to dismantle them. The drawing is narrow- Therefore, it will not be used to use an extractor, high quality steel does not allow crossing into the metal.

four. Secret tags with a narrow pattern, from reliable steel and a protective ring.

Secretakes on the wheels. How to make the right choice?!

To remove such a design will have to tinker. You will first need to remove the ring, otherwise when operating a gas key, it will simply rotate it. To remove the ring, it will need to be drilled, but it is quite difficult to do it with high-quality material. After removing the ring, the nuts can be unscrewed. BUT! If landing wells are present, remove the tires will be almost unreal!

five. The secret, made of reliable steel, with narrow patterns inside the head, a protective ring, which is pumped under the head of the secret.

Secretakes on the wheels. How to make the right choice?!
Secretakes on the wheels. How to make the right choice?!

Very reliable model. It will suit both all kinds of discs (steel, casting). Reliable steel does not allow drilling the head to "demolish" the ring. There is no external access, because the shake of the head and the ring is located on the side.

You can only remove the tires with such protection only in the service, welding such a nozzle so that it fit under the balcony.

What types of sets exist?

  • 4 bolts / nuts with a key;
  • 4 bolts / nuts with two keys (for forgetful car owners);
  • 5 bolts and key (additional bolt is designed for spare parts);
  • 8 nuts and a key (for those who want to put 2 secrets for each wheel).

If suddenly you lost the key From the secret, it can be restored, brand grades, it will be enough to know the code of his secret ( Keep the packaging from the details ); It is also recommended to immediately buy a set with Two keys.

If you want to protect your car with a secret, then Do not take the cheapest option, Because his degree of protection is minimal. Better spend a little more Money for a quality kit and be sure about tire safety.
