I think you are correct on the allen key size, John. The problem was - the metal within the fitting was fairly soft - and the threads on the fitting were very tight to turn. So the allen socket simply rounded out the inside. Probably would have worked if it wasn't so tight to turn. Even once I was able to get a 9/16 socket on the outside of the fitting - it took considerable force to remove it (thread dope?)

I appreciate all the help I have received from TLC and this forum (I think I might have read every thread on this topic). Love the product - and can't say enough good things about it.
