Anyone know where I can get a 5 point socket used to open transformer cabinets? I think it's like a 13/16". I had a guy show me a trick with a piece of 3/4" EMT and hammer and a channel-locks. A socket looks much easier.

Known to lineman sometimes by the slang term "Penta Wrench". I got mine from the Snap-On man, but they're a regular item on eBay. Transformer vault wrench, penta wrench, and so fourth are some search terms. It also fits some curb stop covers for water and gas.

our local hardware store carries them. we used them a lot. Electrical supply houses usually have them. They also come on handles with the penta on one side and ratching allen on the other which are handy
