Chainring bolt behind crank arm

I have a pair of Sugino RD3000 triple crankset and I'm trying to remove the chainrings. It's a 5 bolt but one of the chainring bolts is behind the crank arm. Anyone have suggestions on removing the last bolt? Thanks.

I do have a chainring bolt tool but it doesn't fit behind the crank arm. The crank arm is directly over the bolt.

My Park Tool CNW-1 fits under my TA crank arm. The hex wrench may need to be used to orient the bolt to let CNW-1 engage. Before I had the the chainring nut tool, I pushed a screwdriver under the arm to prevent the nut from turning, and threw in lots of swearing.

I like the Shimano version of the tool because the other end fits the dust caps with the two tiny holes and the Shimano self extractors.
