Both uses make sense.
We seem to have another terminology difference. What you guys seem to
refer to as a "box wrench" is what I would call a "ring spanner".
A "box spanner", to me, is a tubular affair that fits over a nut or
bolt head like a deep socket, but you drive it with a bar pushed
through it. The thing is hollow, and the other end fits another size
of nut. No American tool catalogue I've ever seen has had them.
I could achieve your strut manipulations simply by using a 22mm "box
spanner" and driving it from the outside of the other end with an
adjustable, inserting a 6mm Allen driver on a medium length
extension straight through the middle. No need to manufacture anything.
