At this point, I need to slide the box end of my 14MM wrench over the lever and use it to swing the lever to the locked position. It takes a lot more effort to pull a wheel off that way (and I have no worries about ever having a wheel coming off trying to make it on it's own).
That's good advice. but it's more for going into the store or some other place and not having to worry about someone loosening your wheels. like I said most people don't carry wire cutters. And it's hard as f to unwind a tightly wound paper clip with bare fingers.
