Female 4 pin Molex removal tips/tricks ??

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Just bought a Universal molex remover and I would like to know if anyone knows of a way NOT to destroy the female pins when extracting them?. I used to just take a paperclip and bend the pins but these particular ones are difficult to get at, And using the Molex remover only bends the pins up or damages them to the point where they are done in.
any suggestions??

I have one of those to, male on one end female on the other...I trashed them with it at first to..I was going in to wide of a circle with it...It takes longer but you just have to move it in smaller circles to keep from damaging the pins..You'll get the feel of it after you use it a few times...
