Wheel conflict

I bought new wheels today for my skates and when I got home, I tried looking for my skate wrench thingamajig, but I couldn't find it. I can't loosen/tighten up my wheels unless I have that wrench. So, my question is, can I find one online? Any help is much appreciated.

It's an Allen Key. Any hardware shop nearby should have some, but they do come in different sizes. So bring one skate along to make sure.

Absolutely, though your local sports store will have one. It's called an Allen Wrench, just so you know.

I own this one: $10, but it fits all sizes, including the standard for rollerblades (which I forget but it is something like 3/8") http://www.amazon.com/FULLER-130-772...5620137&sr=1-2

EDIT: Just looked at my tool, and the size I use for my skates is 5/32"
