Connector disassembly trick

I needed to clean the connectors in a plug, and needed a way to get them out. I spotted a ziptie on the bench, worked great:

Re: Connector disassembly trick

Interesting! I usually use a small thin screwdriver, but this looks less damaging! thx

Re: Connector disassembly trick

That's a good idea. I actually bought the little spring steel tool for Packard 56 connectors as I didn't have any luck with even my smallest screwdriver. I actually have one terminal right now I can't get out no matter how hard I push. It's like the small tang has buried itself in the plastic or something.

Re: Connector disassembly trick

Push the connector towards the front of the housing first (away fom the wire side) and then use the ziptie. Iíve done the mini screwdriver bit before, but the ziptie didnít chew up the housing.
