Thanks... now the issue is that I need either a slimline hex wrench as linked above (which seem incredibly rare, about 4mm thick), or some kind of 3/4/5mm metric to 5/16" adapter?

Hard to imagine how they designed the adjustment screws to be so inaccessible.

How about grinding your 8mm down to fit?

Indeed - its a bizarre design. Essentially the middle runner on the bifold has the height adjustment upside down, and a normal allen key will hit the side of the guide rail. The only thing that'll fit is one of these slimline keys, which fits fine, but the socket itself seems to be an odd size I think I just need a 3mm/4mm/5mm to 5/16" adapter (I have other adapters, but none of that size!)
