Does the socket have to be E10 as stated?

Do you know if a 8mm 12pt metric socket with a 1/2" drive from Advanced Auto would work as well?

Thanks in advanced.

Unfortunately, I was ignorant and failed to disconnect the battery prior to passenger seat removal. What is the downfall to this? Does this mean that airbags won’t go off upon an accident?
