We have created a new type of lug nut, designed with a locking mechanism, and a miniature tubular cam lock built in. The Hexagonal side of the lug nut is designed to free spin when the cam lock key is at the "locked" position and stops spinning when the portable key is turned 90 degrees allowing for the lug nut itself to be taken off the vehicle. A new type of Wheel locking security system for after market wheels!
Why we do it
It is a wheel lock concept designed to slow down any nefarious individuals as much as possible. That is the problem with the current wheel lock industry. It requires a bulky key that 9 times out of 10 sits inside the vehicle at all times. WHY? The CONVENIENCE to the owner of having it readily available if it is needed.
Anyone looking to steal your wheels already knows what to look for and where to find it. This CEMA LOCKS system allows you to always have the key on you. It is small and portable enough to keep on a key chain and away from the vehicle at all times. Hopefully, leading to less broken windows or doors. Tires and wheels are getting more expensive as time goes by, It is time for a new, and real solution to protect your heart-earned investment.
3d printing rules! 3d printing is building an object one layer at a time. The beauty of 3d printing is that it is generally cheaper to make than if you go straight to a manufacturer for building. 3d printing allowed us to learn from every single one of our flawed designs. Countless prints, endless hours of design, and plenty of effort has been spent to provide the best possible product. We printed prototypes in both plastic and metal.
Once we narrowed down our design we went with investment casting as our manufacturing process.
Will our nuts fit your needs?
Regardless of what you've heard, it is not a one size fits all. We have to make sure we have the proper clearance. So long as your current lug nuts are not longer than 2 inches in length there should be no issues. This system works best with OPEN ENDED WHEELS. (wheels without center caps sitting flushed). Width wise, as long as you can slide a 21mm socket in the lugnut hole, our system will work for you!
