Abstract : The patent describes a hand tool for loosening and removing coiled wire wrap electrical connections by engaging the end of a wire and rotating the tool until the wire loosens and can be lifted off. The tool has a hollow central tubular member with a helical thread on one end. A second tubular member having flexible collet jaws fits over the center tube for replacing coil wire wraps. An outer tubular member fits over the second tubular member and when pushed down forces the collet jaws against the wire wrap to tighten the coil.
