Is the special valve tool a 5 mm /12 mm combination? I've seen in other posts that it may be a 6 mm. Which is it?

Here is the tool I am referring to: http://www.handsonto...nch_p_6518.html

It would be nice to get one of these if its the right size.

i woulda thought its a 5mm on the smaller one, ive got a 6mm spanner, and it seems a bit sloppy on there, dont have a 5 lol! i do mine the old fashioned way, seems alright but for the price and if your doing them maybe regularly, on a few cars, then probs worth it
