Default Tool for Ignition ring?

I am looking for a tool that will tighten the chrome ring on the ignition switch, the chrome ring has an indention at 3 o’clock and at 9 o’clock. Do you know where I could buy this tool?

Can do both the Lucas ignition bezel as well as the toggle switch bezels.

For a more local source try Moss Motors for that same tool.

Or, if you don’t want to spend the money, screw the nut on the front and then tighten it by turning the switch part from behind the dash while adjusting the nut so that the switch has the proper orientation.

Like jhv48 said, if you have leather on dash you won't put wrinkle's in the leather like you could turning outside bezel. FWIW
