I'd tell you to find a tiny little lock, but that'd be mean, haha. Use this.

its takes a 3/8" ratchet to tighten and loosen it. most likely the same you use to remove your wheels.

its possible just make sure you order the proper thread pattern for your forks. Tree sells all the sizes and can tell you what most forks take.

It'll definitely be more convenient to buy a top cap with a hex head so you can carry the tools around easier.

I think you can also use an Allen key, if you stick it farther down the hole lol. But I love the ratchet slot. Works perfectly on my cult sects.

Yeah Allen key slots will always strip, it's really just a matter of time. They are only made out of aluminum. They really should make some chromoly caps.
