Which hex wrench size to remove folding pedal from 20+ year old Dahon Boardwalk?

The model of the pedal is VP 117. It seems to need a hex wrench. 7/32 is too small and slips inside. 1/4" is too big and won't even fit inside.. Perhaps it needs some metric sized wrench?

From what I am reading, all U locks can be defeated with a chain saw/grinder in under an hour. So why bother with an expensive and heavy one? Hence, my reason for the cheaper lighter one.
