Locking wheel nut cover removal tool

Something you don’t want to discover on a dark, wet windy night when you’re trying to change a wheel by the roadside is that you can’t remove the push-on cover on the security locking wheel nut. Thankfully I discovered mine removal tool was past it’s best while I was on the drive in the warm sunshine. The inner ridges that grip the nut cover either wear or break off completely which render the tool useless but luckily replacements are cheap enough, I paid £2.00 for a genuine one online.
The part number is – KBP10001

Not easy to see but the old tool is on the right, you can just about make out the missing ridges/barbs at the end
