Door bolt size? - Help.

Hi there,
On my 2002 Boxster S driver's side door there is a hinge that keeps the door from overextending when opened. The hinge is attached to the car body by a triple square bolt. (I believe triple square is what it is called.) See pic. Well, the bolt has come loose. Does anyone know the triple square socket size for this bolt? I'd like to purchase the socket so I can tighten it. Sincerely, 100percent

I’ll go check, but why not just get a set? You’ll need them if you do much work on the car yourself.
I think I paid around $10 for mine.

Edit: they were $20.99 at Home Depot for a 10pc set.

The hinge thingy is called a door stop.
