make sure the prongs on the tool are going on the outside of the pin inside the plastic casing.

Made a quick diagram for you in paint haha



Red = ATX pin (the metal one with wings that is attached to wire. you're trying to remove this.)
Black = plastic casing
Green = spot you want the prongs of the tool to go. Follow the purple arrows

I did about 40 pins with staples. Once I got the hang of it on practice ones, I only needed one staple for most of that! It is frustrating in the beginning though, so it's up to you.

Oh I see what you mean now. Sorry, I thought you had the actual tool vertical, which would imply that you had bent the prongs of it or something lol.

The pins can be stiff and it isn't easy to hold the tool AND the connector in one hand, but keep trying! They'll definitely come out, it's just a bit tough the first few times. Once you get it the first time, the next ones will be easier

One thing that tends to help is to push the wire as far INTO the plug as possible, insert the tool, THEN pull it out. Otherwise the edge of the clip can hang on the backside of the plug.

It's built really well, and the prongs don't snap, they'll just bend, and they eaily bend back. Definitely recommend it.
