    6" long x 1" wide x 1/4" thick - there was one member who suggested taking a 6" long 1/2" socket extension and using to lock your primary. Tried it and works pretty good as well.

    ur welcome - the ends of the tool have a bevel on each side that taper down and give you just a tad under a 1/8" flat when looking at it from the end view perspective. I'd give it a 3/32" flat. FWIW

    I've used a piece of (soft) wood as well.
    In my quest for making things easy, however, last time I took the thing apart I just stuffed an old towel in there - worked fine...

    As in a piece of wood? I checked the price and HD wants about $50! Sheesh!

    I got this tip from somewhere on here.

    Sneak into your kitchen, grab one of your thick plastic cutting bords..........start cutting.
