clutch slave nipple tool

What sort of special 11 mm tool has everyone made to bleed the clutch slave cylinder? I have a garage full of tools, but nothing that will work.

A short box wrench is ideal, Sears used to have one that was about 3 1/2 inches or so in length.

If you googled "clutch slave nipple tool" I bet you would get a lot of results that you couldn't open at work!

Wow! I just don't recall having a real issue when I bled mine. I did have the car on a lift.
