Go to hardware/plumbing store and but a ring spanner. Same size as the bottom nuts (9 or 10mm??)

A 10mm deep socket does the trick for the top 4 nuts. Might also need a small extension bar so you have enough clearance to swing the ratchet :wink:

10mm tube spanners are cheap too and do the job fine
