They are actualy a 12-point pattern.  THe tool is referred to as a 12
point or a triple-square.  If your in a bind run down to the Auto parts
store and pick up a set of these.  I got mine from Carquest for something
like $13 for 4 different sizes.  I don't recommend buying these cheapies
since the tool may wreck the bolt.... Just be careful and obey the torque
(33 ft lb) spec...

Good luck!
