    E8 torx socket, or a 12 point 1/4" socket or wrench

    ... at my house I'm the only tool that does that! (sorry - could't pass that up!) ...

    Bigdaddy nailed it - E8 torx socket and/or 12 point 1/4" socket for my 4-techs. - and busted knuckles ...

    I, too, have used my share of 1/4" 12 point wrenches... and have spent many evenings pulling fiberglass slivers from my knuckles. Actually, I found a good 1/4" 6 point will "square up" and grab much better... only 1 or 2 slivers per night.

    But an E8 torx can't be beat (except for that one SC bolt)
