I installed the wheel locks today. Took me about 10 minutes with the pauses for pics. It's fairly simple and straightforward, but this is mainly for those that don't know what the wheel locks look like and may want to decide whether it's for them or not.

Anyway here are the pics.

First pic, in the package. I purchased it as part of the protection package with cargo tray, wheel locks, and rear mud flaps for $135.

The key and the special lug nut, note the special pattern in both of them.

Note how the special lug nut on the left fits into the key on the right.

The factory wrench used for changing flats is all that's needed.

Unscrew one of the nuts with the wrench, then attach the key to the wrench and attach the nut to the key and tighten.

Close up. Notice how the outside of the lock is round compares with the hex shape of the factory lug nut. A regular wrench without the special key will not work on it.

Do it for all four wheels and hopefully it will buy some peace of mind and make it more difficult for someone to steal those wheels;)
