1/8 x 3/4 steel strip will work if you sharpen the end a little.

The auto parts store suggested an offset screwdriver. I have plenty of those.

Ok. I made a tool from a paint can opener. Now I can't remember which way to turn the adjuster. Would someone give me a clue? Is it different between right and left sides?

Ok. Just got my third one done. I stuck my home made tool in and pried down. That rotated the star up. I've said it many times, things are hard once.

Turn the star in a clock wise direction or pry down.

DONE. It took me longer to type in that last message that it did to adjust that last brake. I haven't adjusted brakes since my 72 beetle or my 68 Dodge Dart.

Thanks everyone!!

Pry the star wheel down is a better instruction. Clockwise would depend on which side of the tool you're on.
