I got the Moose wrench. Your conventional box wrench has a bevel on on each side, to guide the box onto the nut faster. Unfortunately, the shallow height of the aluminum caps hex makes that box lead unusable as it only engages a very small amount. I considered grinding flush the box, but it's still a 12 point, no good for the task, and, I didn't want to tear up a Snap-On for this shite

Only problem with the one in your link, it's aluminum, which is an asset when you're carrying it, but a bit weaker than steel.
