Reuse your housings!
This tool is perfect for extracting from Powerpole housings, like Anderson SB connectors. It also helps insert contacts into the housing by applying pressure directly on the contact. The tip of the tool is "U" shaped. Works with 15, 30, and 45 amp Powerpole connectors.
For removal, slide one end of the "U" shaped tip of the tool between the flat contact tip and the housing spring. Twist or life the contact up off the spring, and pull the contact by the wire back out of the rear of the housing.
For insertion, rest the "U" shaped tip around the wire, putting pressue on the back barrel of the contact. This helps you put extra pressure directly on the contact for insertion.
