I got some clay from an arts and craft store ( my wifes suggestion), made an impression, heated it to harden , and sent it to McGard. Worked perfectly.

This might sound to easy, but why not weld a nut to it and then use a normal wrench?

The stainless collar will spin, The nut is brass, I would think the collar would have to be off to get to the nut to weld a nut on it. On mine once I got the collar off I tried channel locks but the nut was to tight. Once I got the collar off I cut grooves in the nut ,beat a socket on it ,it came right off then.Thats if its a Mcguard.My 2 cents

I drove a couple of smal chisels in between the collar and the nut and used a pair of big channel locks. Took about 15 minutes.

Judging by all the successful methods described here, I guess we can assume those prop locks are worthless, now can't we???
