Angry How do you take off locks for the rims without the key???

I am totally pissed. F*ckin idiots at Texaco Express lube broke my lock key for my rims inside one of my locks(passenger side rear) I live in a sh*t hole place with a bunch of idiotic people working at tire shops. I have gone to many different tire places and they said the only way to get it off is to chisel it off. I went to PEPBOYS and they said they have a tool for removing the locks but they wouldnt be able to take it off because of how the lugs and locks set in deep within the rim. Need help.......

hey thanks for the reply, got the key out of my back rim, I will just probably order a new key for my locks, but I did get them to pay for a new set of locks, so I did get that out of them. Hopefully I wont get a flat until I get my new key.
