    zirk fittings for knuckle grease fill studs and other?

    looks to me like a 14mm 12 sided socket fits these square studs. my geometry is not kicking in but anyone know how wide these are of why they are square? also. does anyone sell a zirk fitting you can just leave in there? or one you can put in temporarily? it would be way easier to just hook it up.
