  • More specifically, the wheel lug cleaning tool 10 of the instant invention essentially comprises an elongate coaxially aligned handle 11 that includes a handle mounting shaft 12 coaxially directed through the handle extending forwardly thereof in a coaxially aligned relationship to permit selective securement within a square drive bore 15 coaxially directed through a floor of an associated lug receiving socket 13. The lug receiving socket 13 may define cylindrical or a truncated conical interior cavity to receive a wheel lug therewithin. The conical cavity is at times advantageous to accommodate various sizes of lug nuts and effect greater frictional interrelationship between the associated walls of the socket and a fibrous covering 16 that is mounted about interior and exterior surfaces of the side walls of the socket 13 to effect cleaning and polishing of the lug nut received within the cavity 14. The covering is positioned on exterior surfaces of the side walls of the socket 13 to provide for a cleaning surface that is readily manually manipulated about a lug nut to effect access to portions of a lug nut that may not be readily available when directed interiorly of the socket 13 within the cavity 14. The square drive bore 15 removably mounted relative to the shaft 12 permits selective securement of the socket 13 to various drive tools, such as socket wrenches and the like, should enhanced speed be desired in a cleaning procedure.

  • Love the lug cleaning tool I have taken it to the range in my bag and used it when I dumped powder in the action when had a cease fire reload. If not for this tool would have ended my day early. Would suggest a couple of extra nuts be supplied with it since I have lost one all ready.

    In view of the foregoing disadvantages inherent in the known types of cleaning apparatus now present in the prior art, the present invention provides a wheel lug cleaning tool wherein the same is arranged to define a conically configured socket to receive a lug nut therewithin for effecting enhanced cleaning of an associated lug nut relative to an automotive wheel. As such, the general purpose of the present invention, which will be described subsequently in greater detail, is to provide a new and improved wheel lug cleaning tool which has all the advantages of the prior art cleaning apparatus and none of the disadvantages.
