RBK 5K Skate Hardware

I just noticed today that my blades are a bit loose on my RBK 5K skates. It appears the hardware that holds the blades on the E-Pro holders needs to be tightened. Does anyone know the correct/average size of the head of the bolt? I cannot find my socket set and I need to make a trip to the hardware store to pick up a socket (that will fit) and a wrench. It looks like it could be 1/4" or possibly 5/16", but any help would be appreciated.

Can't tell you the size you need but you could always bring a skate with you to the hardware store.

I use 5/16".
8mm in metric also works.

Thanks one and all for the information regarding hardware for RBK 5K skates. I'm off to the hardware store tomorrow to pick up the necessary items.
