    Thanks all, some excellent suggestions there! Hadn't thought about loosening off a casing to avoid having to take the plug out, nor fileing it down to fit the next size socket. Anyway, ended up using (as suggested) a 6 sided socket... Had no problem getting it out and shall be using on of these far more often! Once again.. Thanks all for the help Smile
