Triple square sockets - where available?

I’m looking for a triple square socket size M10. This is needed to undue a bolt on my car. Does anyone know which hardware shop/chain sells these? I’m based near Chur.

XZN, Aussen Vielzahn? Sometimes, with discretion, you can use a 12 sided socket or spanner made for the traditional 6-sided profile.

Weber in Chur does not have them in stock, neither has Zinsli in Illanz. Würth does seem to have them. Maybe Kohma has one?

Conrad has this set for order, and 2 for pickup in Emmenbrücke:

Tectake (can also be ordered through Galaxus):

But you know what they say: We are to poor that we can afford cheap tools.

I actually have this one here:

Usable for nearly anything but it takes a toll on the screw head in high torque application. For traditional 6-sided screw heads the Wera HexPlus nuts are still the best.

Any industrial supplier will have them, or can order them.

Thanks for the tips. Tried the listed shops in Chur but could not find the socket I needed. But the local garage in Flims had the socket and helped me out in 5 minutes. We are back on the road :-).
