    I found a small watch makers screwdriver was ample for removing pins on all of the electrcail plugs I have attacked.

    Which plug you working on?

    I've always used a jeweler's screwdriver or a half-straightened-out paper clip.

    Works for all sorts of connectors... sometimes works even BETTER than the factory tool!
