Default Using the cmp receiver wrench

So I got the cmp receiver wrench and I have a garand receiver. How do they get to meet each other? I honestly can't figure out which hole to put it in.

The square opening on the wrench slides over the top of the receiver near the front (the part the barrel screws into). Use some painters tape on the receiver to prevent scratching.

The opening that looks like a cross is used on 1903's and the rounded opening is used on carbines.

So it grabs only on the top and the bottom of the Garand receiver, right?

And, thanks for the quick answer! I think I will label each hole so I know what to put there.

That seems the best I could do: put the flat side (opposite of where the bolt handle goes) against the bottom of the U-shaped hole so the top and the bottom go against the sides of the U.

Whatever way works for you, but at the AMC class, they had us place it over the top of the receiver so that the wrench was touching the top and the sides.

I take it back. I went back and looked at my pictures from class, and it does go on to the receiver, Top and bottom. That what happens when you get old. Good thing I took a lot of pictures.

Thanks krdomingue. Maybe you should post a how-to for people like me.

On a related note, I have an unfinished carbine receiver. And it does not fit the hole. I said before the problem is not on the carbine part of the receiver, but on the unfinished one. But I think that statement was not quite right. Since I am not very good at describing things, let me use pretty pictures. First here are all the holes in the wrench:

From what I learned in this thread, 1 is for Garand, 2 for the carbine, and 3 for the 1903. Now, let's put the unfinished receiver in 2:

That looks a bit wrong. Maybe if I turn it 90 degrees counterclockwise? I tried that (just now so I did not take picture) and it felt that it could work if the right side of the last picture was flat.

Maybe I am overthinking this.
