Metric sockets unlikely to be to the 0.5mm. Metric will be either 32mm or 33mm. Could also be 1 5/16" or 1 1/4".


Probably find something like this will open wide enough.

I just went to towbar shop and they loosened with their rattlegun, now I just haul on it with a 12inch crescent. Did end up buying a socket but it was 38mm Koken, also needed 1/2 to 3/4 adapter. This was for a 50mm towbar with thicker shaft
