BAL Hide-A-Spare BOLT

During our walk-around before leaving our camp site this morning we found a flat tire on our camper. Our spare tire is on a BAL Hide-A-Spare storage mount. Great, I thought, until I went to get the spare off. The plastic handle on the device was damaged which made the removal from the camper storage much more difficult.



Has anyone else come across this sophomoric engineering plan? I need to replace this with something much more durable. Any suggestions?

Thank you.

Take the plastic handle off and weld a T bar handle on it.

Yes, thank you. When I "woke up" I did break the plastic thing off and found it takes a 9/16" socket which works just fine.
