trouble aiming headlights

hey all, i just replaced my headlight housing on my 99 Ranger and am having trouble aiming the headlight. I can't seem to find a wrench or socket that fits on the end of the screws that adjust the vertical and horizontal of the lights. Any suggestions?

A socket will work, but I don't remember what size. I do know that it's metric.

i've been around to a few hardware stores and the closest thing that i found was a 4mm socket but didn't buy it as it was to long and wouldn't fit in the tight space

Hmm, I used a 1/4" drive shallow socket and ratchet.
