Art, I assume you are using the correct tool since the high-density and regular D connector use different tools

Folks,
It's not my fault... I'm sure that the pins moved by themselves in the middle of the night... but some of the pins in my high density D-Sub connector are in the wrong places.
I have the right tool:https://www.steinair.com/product/insertionremoval-tool-for-high-density-d-sub-pins-mil-spec/
I have successfully removed regular density pins from DB-25 connectors.
These darned high-density pins refuse to come loose.
Before I make things worse, do you have any suggestions?

My advice is to buy multiples of the tool and in multiple versions. I have metal and plastic versions and have about 3 of each because they are so easy to wreck. The process works the same as standard pins and I know of no trick other than to try the other version of tool.

Yeah, it kinda comes down to 'holding your mouth right'. Smile

Instructions on extractor use are virtually non-existent. On the rare occasions I've had to use one, it takes me about 15 minutes to get everything right & get the pin out. Then I forget what I did before the next time I need to extract one.

As nearly as I can tell, the goal is for the tool to push back the little retainer 'burr' while the pin slides past. Problem is, the pin can't get past the tool (same diameter). And if you have the bad luck to insert the tool where the slot is over the 'burr', nothing works. What I try is to push the tool in as deep as it will go, and while holding it in, pull back slightly on the wire. Then grab the wire and tool with a pair of needle nose pliers & pull. If it doesn't work, I rotate the tool a quarter to 1/2 turn, and repeat.

I have found that the proper string of bad words is the only thing that will get the tool to work correctly.

Turning the tool once it is fully inserted will only bend the tool.  In other words…I think that inserting the tool into the connector straight down and waiting for the satisfying click is the only way to get it to work…if the wire does not pull out do NOT turn the tool in the bore as it will bend the tool causing more bad words…If the wire does not pull out then pull the tool out and then clock it 45 degrees and insert it again.

Magnifying headsets are a must for anyone over 12 years of age.

….

Thanks!!!
