So there is a half size? I know there is some kind of socket to fit the bolt I am trying to get out but everything I have is too big or too small. Trying to get the stock stereo out of my '89 full size Chevy truck and I ran into 4 of these nasty little things and I'm out of my mind.

5 mm = 0.1969"
5.5 mm = 0.2165"
6 mm = 0.2362"

7/32" = 0.2188"

A 7/32" socket may also work.

There are only a very few metric half sizes and only below 10mm. Most metric socket sets I know contain them but I have hardly ever used them even though I live in Europe where metric sizes are common. I think hose clamps sometimes have half sizes as well.

Martin

Well I bought one of each size and they both worked. So that problem is solved.

I will be back though when it comes time to wire this radio in... if I dont burn my truck up, and my house down.... I hate electrical!
