Default Tool to adjust wing angle

Does anyone know what tool is required to remove the bolts that hold the wing to the top of the stanchion on the ZTK wing? You need to remove these bolts to adjust the wing angle and none of the various security bits I have seem to fit. Bonus points if someone can point me to the right tool to buy. Thanks.

Can you share a picture? Is it by chance a triple square?

My dealer bought theirs from the Snap-On guy who was at the dealership the day they were doing my PDI. That’s all I know.

I am quite sure it is a 5-Point Tamper Proof Security Bit Socket, but am not sure of the size.

So this is how the rare wings won't get stolen.

I believe that it is a TT30...tamper-proof T30 Torx. I could only find it in 1/4 drive

I tried my Torx security bits today and they DO NOT WORK. No idea why. It does appear to be a Torx 30 security bit. I have an excellent set of security bits including the various Torx 5 star (center hole) in numerous sizes, but they DO NOT work.

I borrowed the one my dealer's tech (thanks Brandon ) bought to do my PDI at the dealership. Honestly I can't see the difference but they are different. His fits perfectly... mine won't fully seat no matter what I do.

So... the part is from Snap-On. The size is: 30IPR and part # on the bit is FTXR30TPE

Yes... but slightly different shape than my other Security Torx set... not as "pointed"... flatter and wider on the stars. Don't know if you can see it in the pictures.

Yeah, my normal T30 security bit didn't work either. I just ordered this set which says it includes 30IPR so hopefully it will work.

Standard TORX 5 point security bit.
TORX PLUS will not work. Ears are shaped different with the plus version.

Fortunately I already had one of those on order too and then ordered the IPR set after seeing the most recent post. I guess we'll see when they show up.

$145,000 for the car and they didn't add a less than $2.00 bit to adjust the wing! They should have spec'd it to the vender who makes the wings to include it in the foam carton the wings come in. Am I missing something?

For those asking this is what I bought and used to adjust my wing but the original price was only $6 prime shipping at the time.

Still much better than the ridiculous $50 the vendor is trying to get for a single socket....with all the comments deleted.

You can get a full set on Amazon for around $25 when I checked earlier.

Agreed...I have a new Wrangler and it comes with a tool kit to take off the roof, doors etc...if the wing is adjustable Chevy should include a tool to do so...
