|zx5fanatic||There was a review on amazon that said the exact same thing. Maybe I'll just stick to the nuts without locks.|

|jinstall||I have both on different vehicles. Both work fine, McGuard are generally used for OEM locks.|

|Ox-y-GenIII||McGaurd and Gorilla lugs are both great, but in my opinion McGuard locks suck big time. At least the designs.ive tried in the past. The ones with the odd shaped star for a key/lock combo. Way too shallow that it stripped out when torquing to 100lbs and it was only at about 80 lbs when each one twisted and stripped. Just too shallow or it would be fine|

|Geezer||Gorilla, as did some other companies, had issues with the hex drive tuner lug design. The design is such that applying too much torque to this style nut could twist the top of the nut off. This was quite some time ago and my guess is that they have changed the design of this type of nut to prevent the problem. I've also heard that's its hard to properly torque this kind of nut. That said, they have several dozen (or more) conventional designs that work fine.|

|Geezer||McGard are a little better quaility than Gorilla but also tend to cost more. Gorilla's are just fine especially for the budget conscience.|

I had Gorilla set of 20 locking on my previous car for 13 years..
And bought a new set right away for my 2012 Focus.
I bought the black ones, and after polishing them before putting them on, they have stayed nice and are great, one year now.
Sometimes filks disparage another product just to 'cut' it for no reason.
Gorilla is a great product IMO.

|SkyPilot||I have no exprience with Gorilla. However I have with McGuard. They are tob notch best quality out there.|

|zx5fanatic||That's interesting because I've heard nothing but bad things about Gorilla. Everyone always says that the caps fall off the nuts, etc.|
