DMC is dedicated to providing a complete product line for servicing electrical connectors in Electrical Wiring Interconnect Systems (EWIS). We therefore top off our product package with a large variety of installing and removal tools.

DMC provides both plastic and metal I&R tools, but we recommend the use of metal tools because of their durability. Use of the proper installing tool insures that the contact in properly inserted and “seated” in the cavity of the connector. Using the proper removal tool insures the contact is removed without damaging the internal mechanism of the connector.

Removal of Unwired and Broken Wire Contacts (AS81969/30, Plastic)

A common failure experience in connectors is a broken wire inside the connector, and just above the wire barrel.  This is especially common in high density, small conductor applications.

M81969/30 Series Plastic Probe Tools are ideal for removing unwired contacts from connectors. As the plastic probe slides into the connector, it disengages the contact locking mechanism and stretches over the contact, gripping it securely in the plastic probe.

Different colored tool probes and probe bands are used to distinguish between series and contact sizes.

Removal of Unwired and Broken Wire Contacts (AS81969/30, Metal)

A common failure experience in connectors is a broken wire inside the connector, and just above the wire barrel.  This is especially common in high density, small conductor applications.

All Plastic tip removal tools can be damaged by the strands of wire that protrude from the wire barrel.

A series of metal tip removal tools is available under the DMC Part Number DRK278-XX (Contact Gage Size), and they remove both unwired and broken wire contacts in rear release connectors.
