Here's a pic. I have a 72 piece socket set. I bought it JUST for these kegs, too. My deepest sockets spin free. Oh, and my kegs have two of these star things on top of each other on the "In" side/cO2 side.

It may look like two but its not. There is a small notch along it that makes it look like two but it doesn't go all the way through. If you get a 7/8" long double hex socket or a 7/8" double hex wrench it will work.
