Ok so first I find this bag that has a large toe hook and two lug keys ( not the same key patterns) under the set.

then the next day I find a bag with 3 lug keys ( all the same key but different size lengths. ) the 3 allen wrenches and a small toe hook. This was located by the battery.

I guess what I'm wondering is, is this normal? Also looks like the small hook fits up front, but where does the large hook go.

Pictures please.

My gut is that you have two TOW hooks. One the standard cheapy Lotus part that came with the car and perhaps an aftermarket one.

Here's my original thread. This is my old car. My new Elise has it and I have the button on the light switch/starter button access panel.

It's simple. You need a $5 momentary switch from Radio Shack, some wire, an extra garage remote (the small keychain style) from Amazon and some basic soldering and drilling skills.

Easy mod, looks OEM and makes life easier.

The set on the right is definitely OEM. That's what I have with my Elise. I don't recognize any of that stuff on the left.

does your car still have the locking wheel nut on each wheel? If so - you wanna find that socket key also in those tools. If no lock on wheels, you are all set. If you have the locks and no keys - it's a problem.

Large hook looks like the size that goes on any other European car. Those threads are huge!

You only need one key. Sell the rest. People loose them all the time.

So this large hook is useless to me then? If I sell it, what is it called. Evora hook? Or is it too hard to tell.

Which is precisely why you shouldn't have one at all... with a resounding 60% saying they no longer have them in this poll: http://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f25...-still-have-them-installed-your-elige-213626/ I think it's a reflection of that.

If you're worried about your wheels being stolen, consider that your car can probably be moved by 3 large men. They don't necessarily need to remove your wheels if they can load the thing up on a trailer in 10 minutes.

I would also make a comment about where you park it, etc but I understand not everyone has the luxury of choosing where they get to park their car (downtown car parks, etc)

Technically its the towing eye but most call it a tow hook.
From your picture it looks like the set on the left is for an Evora? Did ulao get his car from a dealer? I thought I read him complaining about a check not clearing quickly enough so I'm guessing it was from an individual

yeah I got it from JimofOrlando. But he never knew it was there. I never park where it cant be seen, I just want to rid of this stuff I dont need. Jim got this from the Worldimports in Jacksonville.
