I just used a chisel and a harmer
Then replaced the locking nuts with standard wheel nuts, didn't fancy fighting with the locking bit in the field

Will this work on the round ones with rotating sleeve and the 3 holes in? I might try it with a punch pointed into the holes. Maybe wait until the morning when I can see what I am doing too.

I just worked on the holes, came off pretty easy
I believe it is the method of choice of wheel thieves

There are a number of different types out there. It's basically a nut jam packed with pins which move back and forth. They will move to match the holes / cuts and it should work? Not sure what yours look like but I reckon it would work on a 120s

For the sake of £20 it is worth finding out if they work I guess. I'm not sure if someone else's key would work..? Again, might be worth a try before I go down the brute force and ignorance route.
