Wheel lock key replacement

Hi guys I've had my brakes done today and my TPI*Lock Key*as split (not had the best of luck recently) and I'm not sure where I could get a replacement from. I've Googled it and found a shop and queried it but does anybody know anywhere else? Thanks in advance !!

I'm guessing TPI is a brand? If so, unless you can find a contact, you'd be best off just binning the lock nuts and getting four spare plain ones.

I ain't a clue myself mate. I will see what happens with the shop I've queried.

If the shop has stripped your but and your key surely its down to them to get an extractor out and put in new ones?
