What kind of tool is required to remove this nut on rear wheel?

Hello,

would anyone here please know how to remove the nut in the picture link provided below to remove the rear wheel?

https://www.mrmartinweb.com/images/bi...derailleur.jpg


the bicycle is an old schwinn but the rear nut appears to have some kind of "space" or "gap" so the nut would "lock" into the thread of the bolt?

any suggestions?

You shouldn't need a special wrench to remove the nut. I suspect that a 15mm wrench will do. The slot is probably for a keyed washer so that the washer doesn't turn.

+1,
A standard open end, box or adjustable wrench is all that's needed.

The keyed washer mentioned is between the locknut and bearing cone on each side, and not anything that will affect you unless you want to open the hub to service the bearing.

You really should clean the chain and freewheel/cassette, the chain is hanging up just above the jockey pulley.
