Protecting Wheels

I've heard stories of people trying to steal wheels and skewers, I was just wondering where I could find skewers that have like a lock/key.
I've seen them before, I just don't know where to look or where I can order them.

somebody at work has them on his multi-thousand $$ commuter. They do look nice. One problem is that Peter White doesn't recommend them for horizontal dropouts, which does make sense to me.
