    If you buy the Tesla Wheel Locks, here is what you need to install them...

    Shop Tesla Gear Wheel Lock Set

    * 1/2" Torque wrench that can deliver 129 pounds of torque
    * 21mm Deep Socket (1/2" drive)
    * 22mm Deep Socket (1/2" drive)
    * 1/2" Socket Extension (4-8")

    One existing lug nut on each wheel will need to be removed using the 21mm socket and the extension.

    The new lug nuts will need to be installed using the 22mm socket and the extension, using the proper amount of torque (129 pounds).

    Don't forget to leave the wheel key in your glove box or somewhere in the car so you'll have it if / when you need it...
