Lee Enfield front sight screw tool?

Put several boxes of 303 through my no4 today, at some point mid way through, I noticed it looked like my front sight had shifted. Chalked it up to my eyes and cried on. Fast forward to this evening, I'm cleaning said rifle and the front sight blade just slid right out of the base. Would anyone here happen to have a tool to tighten down the screw in the front of the front sight base?


Now I know why I couldn't hit the broad side of a barn, lol

A good, not cheap, "Schrader valve tool" from the local "car stuff" store.

It you have a dremel and an old screwdriver, you can make your own.

Both of these are good suggestions. I made my own tool a la the moto-tool and screwdriver way. Wish I was smart enough to think of the Schrader valve tool, never occurred to me.
