    I believe they should have a female square drive hole that a 3/8" ratchet will fit into.

    An adjustable wrench should do the trick ;)

    Yeah

    I guess you're right, just stuck in there pretty good and the adjustable keeps slipping off.

    on the pipe style I have found that you can take them off with a 12 point socket. If its rounded form using a crecent you might not get it to work. Specialty tool place or plumbing suply place will proably be able to get you the Square drive if you need it.
