Allen keys are a special type of locking tool used by products in the touchbound system which use the bolt locking system.
Each Allen key has a specific bolt face associated to it and every allen key can open a matching bolt face:
If the wearer of a piece of equipment use an allen key to bolt it together, they can always unbolt it. However if someone else does it, the wearer will be unable to undo the bolt on their own, however, anyone else can assist them.
By default, when the allen bolts are used as a HUD object, or worn on the avatar as an accessory, only the wearer can use them. But there is a special configuration notecard inside the allen key object that can be renamed to change this behavior:
In all cases if the allen keys are rezzed on the ground (not worn) anyone in close range can use them regardless of the public setting.
Activated mode is represented by a glow, and an “activated” hover text when the object is used as a hud element (HUD elements cannot glow)
