How about this for a different design? I found it in my 1840 Broadwood & Sons square piano last weekend while I was removing the strings. It was wedged between the (half) plate and the bridge, under the stringing braid, where I could not see it until I removed those strings. The pin on the right is from my "normal" square, and it's associated tuning hammer.

Even in a 168 year old pinblock, it was all I could do to turn most of the pins with this thing using one hand....some took both hands! Surprisingly, very few were loose enough to just turn them out easily.
