    Hi all,

    Just a question : are the hex screws in inches or metric ?

    I got some tight and my allen key seem a bit loose in the screws.

    The hex tool should be 2.0 mm.

    I had the opposite problem. My cheap 2mm hex key was too tight and I ended up having to file it down a bit to get it to seat properly.

    The standard torx bit T7 will fit too.
    I know this because my eyes thought the screws are of torx type and I'd been using the T7 for a while until a member told me. :oops:
    The long reach 2mm hex works best.
