2.7L transmission drain plug tool

Time to change transmission fluid on my 2.7L. Anybody know where to get a 16mm anti-tamper triple square at a reasonable price? Found the Hazet 2567-16 online for $43 but surely there is a more economical solution. Or if you can loan me the bit for a week or two, I'll of course pay all shipping charges.

I did it with a vice grip then dremeled out the center and put it back in with a normal bit. Sorry to be shade tree but that is how I got it done. The right tool is better but this was free and didn't hut a thing.

I have the Hazet bit, brand new, I'll sell you for $25 shipped. I bought it for use on mine before I realized the 6-speed didn't need it.

For the benefit of future DIY weekend warriors, Paragon Products sells a transmission drain plug socket for $36.95. Still expensive but it saves a few dollars over Hazet.

Or take JAAY's approach and drill out that pesky pin.
