Please excuse my language, but I want to make the thread as blunt as possible.

Where the f*ck can I buy a tool for these c*nts?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

a tool?

 

its the same that you use for a standard hex fella, spanner, socket, whatever.

 

thats just a castle nut, which was the prefered method of securing a nut before the creation of nylon locking nuts.

 

castle nuts are used in conjunction with spilt pins, thats what the slots are for. :thumb:

It's not, this is sunken. You cannot get a normal hex round it, no way.

 

You could get it off with a screwdriver and hammer, but you won't get it back on that way.

 

I've seen castle nuts and split pins on hub nuts before, but there's no pin on this, (because) it's sunken, and it's on a strut. There's a tool for this, for sure.

The purpose of those nuts is to use them with split pins. Unless you've provided us with the wrong image. If a nut is sunken so that a spanner or socket wont fit on it then there will be a special tool for it, but it's not a special tool just for castle nuts, it'd be a tool for sunken hex nuts, if such a thing exists. Do you have a pic of it? Would a shaven socket fit? (walls ground down so it fits inside the recess
