I doubt it's THAT non-standard a size... btw you might try using a Torx bit if you have one that's close - sometimes they'll bite when an allen key is rounded or not the right size.. These are the GM "six point star" type tool.

Something else to think about is getting one of those inexpensive "multi-bit" driver kits for drills and hex shaft quick change screwdrivers.. you'll end up with a whole range of types and sizes.. comes in real handy and is usually sold in a nice case that stows well on board.
