Me to and I have several of the half moon wrenches. Even with the wrench it's a real pain trying to get the bolt installed.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Those are available at NAPA, as well as most real auto parts stores, though may require ordering.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

For the occasional need you can get a similar set of S-shaped wrenches at Harbor Freight for $16.

I have those "S" shaped wrenches, Matt, they're useless! In order for a curved wrench to be of any value, both ends need to curve the same way. The ultimate effect of "S" shape is pretty much the same as a straight wrench but less useful.
