I picked up 14mm and 17mm hex head sockets. I can't remember which is fill and which is drain, but those are the two sizes I bought when I changed my trans fluid.

You can also get a 14 and 17 mm bolt and nut, tighten them up together, and use that if you have to.

Slightly off-camber:

If you have come to this thread looking for the info for a Rubi Xfer case. My plugs were 10MM hex. I bought a 7 peice 3/8" drive hex socket set from Wal-Mart.

My np 231 takes a 10mm hex head. I know this size well cause i had to keep checking on the fluid due to the big crack in the casing.

How are you able to keep the nuts from loosen up when turning anticlockwise?

Use two nuts and lock them against eachother, use the bolt head as the key in the plug and turn it all using a wrench on the "middle" nut.

Thanks! I could have saved $15 for the hex key
