You can get a set of theses Sears: Online department store featuring appliances, tools, fitness equipment and more

Or if you have access to a welder weld an old socket or a longer bolt to the one that is rounded off.
The heat from welding will usually loosen up any binding caused by rust or galling

Seriously the tbar bolts suck nuts. They shoudl've used a stronger metal because mine are rounded also.

Let's just put it this way, next time i **** with tbars im gonna remove em permanently.
