Theft-proof lug nut location

Post by mraitch » Sun Mar 25, 2018 2:30 pm

I frequently drive Eliza, forgetting that the theft-proof lug nut 'fastener' is at home. And of course, if I get a flat, I am screwed. And in any case, rummaging through a bunch of tools is a pain.

So, I just attached it to the battery using a hose clamp, so I always know where it is, i.e. always with me.
