Nose cone Dzus Removal- Wing Clearance

Recommended Posts

How do you all open the Dzus fasteners on the sides of the car? Seems they are extremely close to the wings. I've been using a screwdriver on the inside of the engine bay, but it seems there must be a better way.

Quarter coin works in a pinch. Otherwise a short flat head screwdriver.


If you're really fancy you can by a Dzus tool, although not sure how it fits.


Generally there is decently ample room to fit even relatively bigger screw drivers. Could be different on an SV

You need one of these.[END QUOTE]


Back when the F-4 Phantom II and other aircraft had multiple panels held on with Dzus Fasteners, Airmen called this a "Snoopy Tool" and before our legendary "tool control" programs, every flightline mechanic carried one in his pocket. Later, the Composite Tool Kit (CTK) program eliminated tools in the pockets, etc.
