wheel bolt covers

This might be a silly question, but here goes..

i got some 17mm hex bolt covers for my wheel bolts, however what do you do about the locking wheel nut one as its a different shape than the others?

My old Audi A4 used to have hex bolt covers, but the locking one was hex on the outside and round on the inside.
Might be worth trying VAG to see if they do anything.
