Why? The inserts stay in place when removing the bolt. Remember, these are very low torque bolts.

No need for the much more expensive Timesers in this application.

As for the tool, yes, get the tool. Just go to Autozone, or similar, and pick it up. The kit can be gotten from HF, though I haven't used one yfrom them, they look the same.
