12 point tool


Recommended Posts

I think my father got ours from the snap on guy. I have heard these can be had some pep boys. 8mm triple square. Don't do it without the tool as it will just strip the bolts and cause you pain.

Snap on offers the correct tool in a socket, 3/8's drive. It's also called a cheesehead.

You can go to Napa or Pep Boys and get the tool shaft only, but then you have to stick the base of that into a 8mm? socket to use it. .......which it keeps falling out of.

I've considered converting my CV bolts to normal allen heads so I don't need a special tool.

The 12 points do give more surface area than a regular allen head for applying a higher torque, though.

Micheal, if you have trouble finding one, and just need it for a week or so, call me and I will put it in the mail...... It's just one socket..... Snap-om truck, about $25. Those bastards.......
