    Watts 3/4 PRV strainer plug socket size or special tool?

    so what size exactly should a 1 1/4 1.250" socket be that it wont fit a 1.240 nut? I don't make a practice of measuring the wrenches or exact bolt head sizes. its too sloppy? the nut is 12 sided not 6? 32 mm is 1.260 inches so if 1 1/4 is too small try 32 mm
