NAPA part # NB95 is a large 3/8 drive screwdriver bit ,11/16 or so,  
(drag link socket)  It is popular due to low cost since you will not be 
wanting a full set of drag link sockets to go with the tool this 
"socket" fits into  --  a drag link.  This is an impact tool you hit 
with a hammer to transfer the impact to the socket  to hopefully turn 
the x-plug with the least damage and corresponding best chance of 
success without air tools and an impact driver, still using the same 
screwdriver bit since few folks have an x-drive socket.  Sears and 
other tool sellers should have the drag link impact tool (and hammer ) 
Have fun.
