Default rear rotor issue

When i take the wheel off there are i believe 5 additional lugs, no problem except one. It's almost like a wheel lock but on the hub, and i don't have the key for it, does anyone know a trick to getting one of these off without having the key?

Pound a large 12 point socket on to the lug (i can't remember the size, 22mm or so, and then use a long breaker bar to slowly break it loose.
