I just replaced the silly locking lug bolts with regular bolts and am wondering if there's a better tool to pull the bolt covers.

Anyone found a hand tool with a properly sized hook that works on the bolt covers?

Thanks!

Yes, the "chrome" wheel bolt / wheel lug covers.

Never thought about it before but as arthritis takes hold in my hands, then pulling the covers off with one finger using the bent wire thingummy would now be bloody painful!

I'm looking for a better tool than the one in the boot, something with a decent handle. I also keep a complete tire changing kit in the garage -- floor jack, cordless impact wrench, torque sticks, etc., (mostly for autocross) and I like to have everything I need in that kit...so I don't have to start popping trunks, removing all the stuff SWMBO keeps in the trunk, etc. :)
