It might help to say what engine is in your spider as there are different locking tools for different engines.

EB Spares were hiring tools previously, not sure if they are still doing so & shipping each might make it cheaper to buy them & try to sell them on ?

Probably too late now, but I have a set of locks.
Used them on my 156 previously.
Don't know if they would suit you or not.

The 1.6 cam locks are different to the 1.8 and 2.0.
So if the cam locks are from a 1.8 or 2.0 they'll be fine if they're from a 1.6/2.5/3.2 they're different.

To be honest, I'm not sure which I have.
I used them on a 1.8 TS.
From what I can remember, they didn't seem to be a 100% perfect fit but did the job.
Longer bolts are a must!
