Hex Keys / Allen Wrench
Hex keys, also known by the brand name Allen keys or Allen wrenches, are used for tightening and loosening socket drive fasteners.  Sold individually or in sets, keys have a hexagonal cross-section and are available in standard inch and metric sizes.

Hex keys come in a number of styles from standard long arm or short arm key to ball keys and tamper resistant hex keys.  Ball keys have a six sided ball at the end that allows the key to work at low angle - ideal where access to the socket head is limited.  The tamper resistant hex key is six sided with a hole in the center to accept a pin located in the socket drive fastener.

There are also T-Handle hex keys that are straight hex keys with a handle for easy grip and straight on installations.
