NavPod wrench of key? Where do I get a replacement?

I have a NavPod that holds my GPS and stereo controls. I need to replace the stereo control but can't open up the back of the pod without a special wrench or key. I have done some internet searching, but haven't had any luck. Anyone have any ideas?

I had a similar need and called up the Ocean Equipment (NavPod) folks and ordered a "NavPod TamperPruff Wrench Set" for $25. I received a nice t handle allen wrench with a hole in the middle of the shaft to fit the special fasteners.

You might try the numbers off their website here.

Or, you can go to ACE Hardware and find a allen wrench set with holes in them. For about the same price you get a full set. That would be a good Ace Hardware or other tool store that stocks them. Found mine at Ace.

I gotta hang out at Ace more - have never seen Allens with the holes. $25 for one Allen is a bit steep, but I didn't think there were any other options. Thanks.

FWIW, here is a better link to the NavPod wrench set. I guess they are $12, not $25 as I stated earlier.

Put one in last year. Don't want to lose that little allen w a hole.

Do you know how to cut that stuff? It fuses w a sabre saw unless tape front and back first.

I have a spare allen wrench tool I got from the marine electrician that has done work for me, as he has plenty of spares from from NavPods he's put in. Ask a marine electrician, he might have a spare to give you.

The allen wrench with the hole in it is called a security hex wrench and commonly available at a lot of electronics shops. Microcenter Computer stores will have a bit set that has a lot of the security bits in it, including the torx and hex ones for less than $20.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

You wouldn't know how many bits of electronica have those damn security bits... When you're trying to modify or repair one, you need to have the right bits so you don't use your sledgehammer on it out of frustration.
