Tool for front blinkers

Mc Guiver Here:
HOT Tip:To help mount your front blinkers in the blinker well.
Take a 12mm or size you need,deep socket,& drill a 5/16"-3/8"hole in the side about 5/8" from where the ratchet goes in.I used an #4 high speed steel center drill. I Put it in a vise,Center punched it,Drilled it
Instant blinker tool!
Now just feed your wires through and tighten er up!
Sorry no pictures.I spend my money on my bikes not camera's.I'll see if I can get one soon.

That's a great Idea, but I don't think my dinky drill and bits can hack it. Anyone have a drill press I can borrow?

Deepwell socket, wires through where the ratchet would insert, and vise grips to turn the socket.
But it's easier to just let the locknut do the work. Did mine about 10K miles ago and they haven't loosened up once.

You feed the wires through the front of the socket and out the hole in the side. If your happy with how you installed yours then I'd say stick with that technique.
I'm into trick tools that make life easy, and knowing things are tight.
