An ideal anode removal tool

Take a bolt that'll fit one of the sockets on your 4-way wrench, grind four sides to slip into a 1/2 drive socket (of course you've already got the 1-1/16" socket, right?.....oh:r ) and you've got it.

Stores easily, and you can really get the torque on that stubborn anode.

Larry, from the photo, in which I can't see any grade lines on the bolt top, I'd say it was a Grade 3. I don't think you want to be filing or grinding on a Grade 5 or 8 anyway:bh

I don't have an anode, but I would be using the socket with my 1/2 drive extension and my custom-bent pipe on my ratchet handle. I don't have one of those tire tools, preferring to use the tools I already have in my toolbox;)

Great idea!

Don ... great idea! I carry set of sockets with me (and purchased several of the 1 1/16 sockets, to always have one handy, at home and on the road.

Never thought of making one like yours ... and of course, we all travel down the road with a tire iron or spinner.

Good idea.

4-way wrench

As most buyers of Casitas know you're furnished a nice chrome 4-way wrench and anybody who has to change their own flats knows that a 4-way can't be beat (shall we mention Carlisle :o owners?!).

Sure makes a nice 'companion tool' for the anode.:wave
