    which BB socket for 15mm center lock lockring?

    Hello..
    Im looking for a BB hollowtech2 socket that is deep enough to lock the ring on a Dt Swiss 15mm front centerlock hub..
    I have a BB socket that is too thin and the 15mm adapters on the hub will not allow the socket to engage on the lockring teeth
    This Pedros BB socket looks like it is deep enough..
    PEDRO'S NA | Innovative Bicycle Maintenance | External BB Socket
    or even this one from Birzman..
    Bottom Bracket Wrench - BM09-ST-ABB-01-K
    what do you think?
    Thanks a lot

    p.s. I know, I could use a BB open spanner..but I would like to use my torque wrench to lock at 40nm as suggested ...

    I know the FSA steel version is super deep and would work fine. It's also a shop grade tool and isn't cheap. But I know it will work.
