    Diawa Saltist

    I have some Saltist 6000 series. I like to open them up once a year and give them a good cleaning and lube. I can't figure out what size or type of tool to remove the side covers. I looks like a regular hex wrench should work, but i can't find a size that fits it. even tried metric. How is everyone else removing those screws?

    I looked at mine and do not think it is a hex wrench. It looks like a special wrench.

    You can buy a selection of "security bits" sold at the box stores and one will fit that screw head....

    I can't read the size as the printing is too small, but one of those style bits will fit them.

    It is a star bit, and metric of course...

    The size of the allen head is 2.5.mm for the 4500h series. I got that direct from daiwa. Might be the same for the 6k
