Another note on this type of bolt. Usually the recess for the wrench
isn't very deep - which is why they use the 12 point wrench ... to keep
the bolt head pretty small.
Make sure the hole in the bolt head is completely cleaned out.
A side effect of the recess being shallow, is that if there's any
dirt or old grease/undercoat/whatever in the recess, the wrench
won't go in deep enough and it'll strip right away! Also be sure
to hold the wrench *really* straight into the bolt head recess.
These things strip real easy, and if you do that you'll have even
more fun <!>
Don't ask me how I know these things :-)
