I have just encountered my 4th consecutive 88 Fiero with security lugnuts with the same key pattern.
I think there were two suppliers of these security lugs, and maybe they both were using the same patterns. The tag I have for this particular security key has registration number 3410588. If you are in need of a security lugnut socket, give it a try.
Division of Amcor Industries, Inc.
They are now doing business as
Gorilla Automotive Products
2011 East 49th Street Los Angeles, CA 90058 United States
Not sure where you get this and site has a few issues and no mention related to Amcor.
GM only had/has 1 vendor making Wheel Locks... Amcor
and is still at https://www.amcorlocks.com/
but moved to 6220 Commerce Drive Westland , Michigan 48185
One Link in my cave Tires
page is "dead" is just old w/ added part after .com IOW the /store2.asp?type=SETS gets 404 error on https://www.amcorlocks.com
Amcor only made a "few" patterns for lugs and others and not really a surprise same pattern on several to many cars.
Is why you could go to many GM dealers to use "Master Key" set to order new key w/o having key numbers from original doc's came w/ car.
Amcor now shows every key pattern available at https://www.amcorlocks.com/copy-of-complete-set
Plus also sells "Master Set" but isn't same used by GM because missing odd small keys that unlock "hubcaps" on some GM rims etc.
If you need a lock that works w/ GM lug covers this is only place I know of to get them. PN seems to change so "call" them before ordering.
No Locking lugs are really good, more so if rims allow a lot of room to hack them off by whatever tools, but still makes many thieves to find an easier target.
I use McGard
locks because don't have OE rims and can't use GM lugs w/ plastic covers.
McGard made a point that their design allows many more keys then most others including Amcor.
So you won't see same pattern and can't use other keys very easy.
McGard also makes locks for many other things for Govrmnt and more.
Been using McGard for many years... Unlike many, They won't rust in states w/ heavy salt on roads, near ocean, etc. Sells Lug Nuts/bolts w/ same level of manufacturing.
Dr. Ian Malcolm: Yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.
