Yes, this is by far the dumbest security idea put on vehicles in the last few years. I've seen so many get replaced, and I've even had to go as far as torching the lug nuts off of wheels on cars I was going to junk. I would check everywhere inside the vehicle as these are often tossed into a small pocket or under a seat and forgotten.
