    Apparently my hub nuts are really tight!

    Also don't use Halfords or Snap-On 3/8 to half inch converters to try & do the job!

    they don't work as you snown. doesn't take alot of force to snap them

    use 1/2" impact sockets.

    The 17mm allen socket we got for the hubs was 3/8 drive sadly so we had to give it a go!

    At least you can get the snap-on replaced for free.
