    If anything, having one more variation of this on the market means that a potential thief is that much less likely to have the tool needed to remove it. You wouldn't want everyone using the same security bolts because it would make life too easy. Diversity in the market confers security to everyone.

    I assumed he wanted the opinion of bike mechanics, given that they probably deal with people who have lost wheels a lot.

    I guarantee you I can get that off with a vice grip, or a tool they sell for removing locking bolts on auto wheels, in less than 5 seconds.

    Not saying its worthless, it will definitely deter a thief, like gluing a ball bearing in an allen head bolt, but it will not prevent the theft of a wheel.
