    vent knob

    How is it removed ! There looks like an allen head keeper on the side of the knob but of all the tools in my garage I do not have that size allen wrench.*#! The parts blowup don't show jack and I've tried different nail tips,making my own wrench,nada.
    Now I'm going to go to the garage and take a sledge and beat the mofo off and make my own knob

    Well I pried and beat the knob off.wonderful.it looks like a pitbull got a hold of it.With the knob off,I tried everything I could find to loosen that allen head,forget it.Put the new vent rod in pounded on the old knob AND it still doesn't work/vent.I have tried blowing hpa everywhere except up my arse.Next will be a partial strip down with ,you guessed it, lost or extra parts.
    Tom,I will pay for the correct allen key for every kit you send out.Send me a guesstament on price for the key and I WILL send you the money, guaranteed.

    The allen size for the knob screw is 050 its the smallest size in a real allen set. The next one smaller then 1/16.

    Before you destroyed it you could have just got a new one for 99 cents at home depot or radio shack.

    Even a $2 set from a local hardware store bargain bin will have this size.
