This has ignited a long-dormant question: when the spigot has a hole drilled through it, what is the hole for? As in this one: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/images/images2500x2500/Manfrotto_118_118_Universal_Short_Spigot_546497.jpg

I'd always assumed it was for a pry bar to tighten/loosen it.

That does make sense.  And I usually have a screwdriver around that acts as a good ad-hoc prybar, although I have always just used pliers.
