Thin Wall Socket

Another pet peeve of ours is having to use a thin wall socket on the bead-lock bolts. The Beadlock Specialties versions we tested weren't too bad, and they come with standard six-point bolts, so we were sure to have the correct socket no matter where we went. One question we had is why no one uses tight-fitting alignment dowels to line up the bead-lock ring, instead of relying on the bolts to locate the ring.
