People also ask, what does a hex socket look like?
A “hex” socket—short for “hexagonal”—is a socket that fits around a hexagonal (six sided) nut or bolt head. There are two types of hex sockets - six point and twelve point. The six-point hex socket has six points (angles) inside the bolt end, making a perfectly even hexagon.
How do you find the hex key?
Hex key standard sizes. Hex keys are measured across-flats (AF), which is the distance between two opposite (parallel) flat sides of the key. Damage to the fastener or the tool can result from using a hex wrench that is too small for the socket, for example a 5 mm tool used in a 5.5 mm socket.
