that tool doesnt seem adequate or necessary
youd need more torque to loosen those bolts than your clinched fist holding
a traditional screwdriver-like handle could supply. i also question wether a
straight allen key that long will be able to get in there.
but even still, its unnecessary, call it modgepodge, but i used an
extention or two with a u-joint, allen sockets, 1/4 inch, 3/8th drive when i
could... i also recall learning that a 1/2 inch extention fits perfectly
around the end of a 1/4in ratchet for added torque in tight spots.
the tools i used are all typical craftsman,, the most exclusive -for lack
of better word- i used were my reducers/adapters and u-joints. other than
that, all standard.
one thing to note.. i did snap one 1/4" u-joint in the process, that sears
happily replaced for free minus the cost of gas 2 miles down the road.
save your money for other tools you really need, and impress yourself with
how you can get it done with the ones you have.
