Roof rack track bolt size?

Anyone happen to know what size Allen wrench the bolts in the roof rack track are? I'm trying to install the RRO roof rails and none of my allens seem to fit quite right.

And are there supposed to be instructions included with the RRO rails and/or safari rack?

Torx with the little theft deterrent hole in the center.

Re: Roof rack track bolt size?

Yeah, D'Oh! When I first looked at them I thought they might be Torx, but the slits plus some poor lighting made an optical illusion that made it look more like a standard allen. Found the right Torx and and got the bolts out just fine.

I also found the instructions for the RRO rack and rails .... after I finished installing the whole thing. D'Oh! It was hidden under some packing material. Not that the installation was really rocket science, but there were a few things on the instructions that would've saved me a bit of time and also kept me from scratching the powder coating with the U-bolts. Oh and the instructions also mention that they're Torx ... Sigh.
