I was thinking of the sliding panel that covers the power switch and
internal tape drive on a pedestal 3000.

I just took a look and the 11/750 uses the small hex for the doors, 
while the 8?00 and 6?00 use the large hex key.

I had forgotten all about that large hex key. I thought they were all
the smaller one.
