Proper lock ring tool for Shimano SM RT-AD05 disc rotor adapter?

Anyone happen to know what the proper tool is to tighten the lock ring (see red arrow in pics below) on the RT-AD05 6-bolt to centerlock disc rotor adapter? I've read on various product descriptions to use either the Shimano TL-LR15 or TL-LR10 lock ring tool, but this particular lock ring does not even have splines and its diameter is much larger than the the recommended lock ring tools (actually, I've only tried using the Park FR-5 lock ring tool, but from what I understand this is equivalent to the recommended Shimano ones). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Do you happen to have a pic of it? The Park FR-5 I have is a standard Shimano cassette lock ring tool, but it does not fit the RT-AD05 lock ring.
