Al-ko Wheel Locks

Bill Garner

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else had the problem of paint chipping off the wheel locks? The paint on mine had started to disintegrate


before I had started to use it. I spoke with Al-Ko who said that the paint was not covered by their warranty. I have


resprayed the lock twice in the last 12 months but the peeling persists and creates a "tatty" appearance. Possibly the


only remedy is to completely strip the lock back to the aluminium and start priming from scratch.


I would be interested to hear if anybody else has had this problem and their solution.

Hi Bill,

I have two Alko wheel locks. They were new in November last year. No signs of paint coming off. How long have you had the locks before you started to use them.
