Stabilizer socket

I have never liked the stock stabilizer wrench that came with the trailer. I used a power drill until my drill broke. Left with the stock wrench, it soon unwieldy and uncomfortable. Bought one of these and used it last week on Prairie Schooner's last trip leaving York to it's new home in Minnesota. The wrench works so much nicer and easier than the stock wrench, which I happily left in the trailer for the new owner. I'm keeping this one for the new one next year.

My 5.0 TA is in storage so I can’t take a look at it, so can you tell me what size socket is needed? I have several speed wrenches in the tool box and one of them will make the job easier. Good idea. Thanks

Yes, 3/4 socket and I also put on a 6" extension bar to help use when leaning over....

The same as yours, they are all the same from the factory, a welded on socket and a plastic handle cover that is too thin...
