Rainbird 5000-What tool do you use

Just bought some Rainbird 5000's and have a question as to what type of tool you insert in the top to install the nozzle. The Rainbird directions say "Insert Tool into pull-up slot, turn 90 degrees and lift up stem". I see no reference as to what type of tool, I did not get any tool with the rotor heads and see no tool at the Rainbird.com site or Sprinkler Warehouse site.

A small flat-blade screwdriver will work for those nozzles. That's all that really matters. As for lifting the rotor, you need the tool.

I just installed my spinkler system and order all my parts through spinklerwarehouse but there was no tool included. Can I order the tool?
