Brooks Pro Wrench (This is prolly easy)

this is probably simple, but i bought a brooks pro saddle a while ago, and after 7 months, i need to add some tension to the bolt. the standard brooks wrench isn't working for me. is there a specific wrench for this seat?? i looked on google but didnt find one.

are you sure you have the correct wrench for your seat? Because the standard wrench fits my pro saddle perfectly. Maybe you have the wrench for the swallow.

Strange you have to add tension to a Brooks Pro after only seven months.

They're nomally good for years before they need adjustment, if any at all.
