I always carry a house key with me in my "cycling wallet". I've notched the key to fit the nipples on my wheels. It'll function fine in an emergency.

Tools are not a place to cut corners. often if you cut corners, you will round corners. Nothing like working with some rounded off aluminum spoke nipples.
It's only for an emergency. I can't remember the last time I had to tighten a spoke mid-ride. (Maybe there were times I should've, but didn't notice how loose one was until I got home! :eek: ) But I do try to check them once in awhile at home, with my other spoke wrench.
