I put blue lock-tite on my threads and just tapped the nuts snug with a small punch on the notches. Has worked great and shows no signs of loosening after 500+ rounds,

I took an open end wrench of the appropriate size and cut teeth in it with dremel to match the crenulations

If you have the type of Stock Wrench with the removeable rod, the handle fits great, with the rod removed, as long as you pay attention.

Used the mill ... made a four toothed tool. Some of my bipod nuts were rather stubborn to remove - this was the only way to go.

For putting them back on, the punch method would work just fine with a bit of lock tight if you don't have a custom tool.

Best of luck!

Turn to the right?

OK- I notched a screwdriver (big blade) and turned. For final tightening, tap w/ a brass drift.

The vertical foliation in the rock is a crenulation cleavage, and developed after the horizonal foliation.
