Pretty sure he's asking about Trail Gear Creeper locks. I've seen them in person and they seem to work well and are built like a brick shit house. Only complaint the driver had was the weight of them.

Trail gear wheels are good wheels but on the heavy side. Personally I would recommend method and save around 15 pounds per wheel.
