Default Any idea what this wheel lock kit is worth?

I've been searching and I cant come up with anything. I don't know if these are even "legal" to sell. Seeing that I cant find any other kits for sale it makes me think there might be a reason why.

Searched around a little at the dealership this morning and came across these again and decided to take them home and see if they're worth anything.

I'd imagine a thief would love to get his hands on this kit.

Either a thief or an auto technician. Those were probably used as a "master set" for cusromers who lost their wheel lock keys. What dealership did you get it from? I might be interested in buying em, i hate when customers come in with their lock keys.

Its a GM dealership (Buick, Cadillac, Pontiac, GMC, Chevy, Hummer).

There's 10 different locks and 2 spares in the kit.

This was in the rack with all the other tools and general maintenance stuff they have lying around (tire stems, battery terminals, solder, wires, etc).

What kind of business/shop do you have?

I think you should put a different lock on each lug on your car for the ultimate in wheel theft deterrence. and hassle.

I think you should weld your hub studs to the wheel itself for the ultimate in theft deterrence.

Does it bother you that most of the rims you'll be stealing selling were rent-to-own. Some bro is gonna lose his WIC money.

Please don't text me again until after you develop a conscience.

25% is pretty tempting. Let me think about that.

Honestly I'm thinking $200 for the set. I'm not sure if anyone here is looking to pay that much, so they might be better off on sleazebay. This way I can get the attention of all the crooks and hood rats. On second thought, maybe this would be better off on CL. lol

CL is a great idea but you'd better be packing heat when you meet your buyer

Did you steal these? That's how this reads.

After the ordeal with buying the Taurus off CL, I'll never trust another soul off there. No matter what story they feed me or how normal they look.

The dealership I'm liquidating is closed and besides the owner I'm the only one with access. I take boxes of parts at random and this is just something else I grabbed when I was up there last. Picture 2 rooms filled with all brand new in the box parts, sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming. I usually just grab and go, then find out if it was a hit or a miss once I'm home.

Your kind of new here, but the backstory is Vash is ebaying all the stuff from a dealership that went out of business last year. So he is going through everything and trying to sell it.
