    One tool I find useful at times in my photo gear is a small adjustable wrench.  Carrying several wrenches, one for each size hex nut on all my gear is clumsy and heavy.  The standard size for small wrenches seems to be 4" long, but I've had this 2.5" one for decades and it's very lightweight.  Fits just right in a small pouch with Allen wrenches.

    This tiny Sears Craftsman wrench may be a little difficult to come by.  It seems that Sears makes a batch of them every few years, then they disappear.  If I recall correctly, they cost about $2-3.  They are so rare that I haven't been able to find a reference to them anywhere on the net.

    But, if you find one when they are in a bin at Sears, or can find one in a yard sale or flea market, consider yourself lucky.
