So it should fit over the female plug, but inside the plastic cover?
yes you should put the 'tool' over the metal but inside the plastic
wow thats class cheers dude
Remove the cartidge from a Papermate FlexGrip pen (or similar) and you now have a male molex pin remover. If your a total nerd, it will also clip on your shirt pocket next to the slide rule.
Zap You can find the perfect size square brass tubing at a hobby shop for removing the 20 pin connectors. Usually they are in the architectural model parts section.
awsome It works... have the same pen too! Now to remove the pesky females...
Whoa Crimsonsky, slide rule??? Man, you must be almost as old as me!
Nice to see another geezer into modding.
hehehe...oh yeah...I'm up there
I made the female remover out of a digital coax cable and it worked fine (the one that looks like an audio plug). I had to remove the inner material and I was still having trouble with bending the pins forward. I found out that the tool is not long enough so I cut some of the material from the fat part of the plug to get clearance...
What happened to the pictures ? Not that usefull without them.

Alrighty updated post with new pic link and reworded title. Happy modding guys
Any one found the 20pin tool in the UK now, for such a prolific mod they are very hard to get hold of, you would think that the companies that sell the actual molexes would sell the tool too.
Nice but i didn´t got mine to work unfortunately
are u using a mono plug. after u cut off the tip, the mono has a longer shaft than the stereo and will reach the tabs on the molex pins
for the male removal tool all you need is one wire and chip thingie, removed form the female ones then you just put it over the male and put the wire out, easy cheap and finds a use for old dead PSU cables
now for iggys way.
take el cheapo ballpoint pen (bic, whatever)
remove inside. use inside to remove molex pins. for female molexes all you need to do is cut the pen cartridge down the middle a wee ways.
Good thing I found this forum today. I didn't want to spend $9 - $18 on a stupid one time use molex pin remover. Thanks guys
pics dont work
went to the other site and they do
