i agree a socket piece is by far the best choice in many cases, just not for mine it seems.
Have you tried the 'shorty' version plug? I had to use it on a 24" bike I built for my nephew because of clearance issues with the cantilever bars.
It is an Autolite #2976. It has performed well for me in a couple of low clearance bikes.
Admittedly I use a box end wrench instead of a socket but it's still better than pliers.
