    Flat tube - need help - Wheel lock pattern?

    Hey guys.

    Its finally came to the day I need to replace a tire on my Novara Buzz (pulled out a 3 inch nail..). As I'm (un)happily dismantling the screws and such, I notice that on the wheel lug pattern I don't have this tool.

    I did search here, and googled, it appears I need a proper terminology before finding the exact thing.
    I tried stuff like Novara lock pattern, bicycle wheel lock, bicycle wheel lug nut, hexa circle screw.. no dice.

    I need help knowing the name, or whatever it is called. Apparently I have no method of removing the screw..

    It's locked up with a pattern like this:
    Crappy pictures, but hopefully you get the idea..





    Thanks in advance.

    Ya, figured it out. Thanks for tip guys. I don't have a bike shop because I bought the bike online through REI with no membership

    For anyone in the future, apparently it's a #6 allen wrench:


    Don't ask me why, I have no clue why the design says otherwise. But it works.
