  • Extracting Molex Sockets

    I am trying to remove a Molex socket, but not having any luck. (This is the first time I have worked with Molex connectors before -- just getting started wiring my RV14A wings.) I have purchased several Molex extraction tools, including all the ones Stein sells, but none seem to free this thing. What is the trick to removing these without destroying them?

    For this connector you will want to use our SAT-CPC extraction tool. First, this tool pushes over the pin and slides down until it compresses the two tabs on the pin. Next, this extraction tool has a plunger style handle which should be used to push the pin out of the housing once those tabs are compressed.

    Note; it can be a bit difficult to remove the pins from these connectors. It takes a good amount of force to get the extraction tool to slide all the way down to pinch those tabs.
