Abstract : A substantially cylindrical extraction device adapted to push connector inserts from a connector assembly has an outer diameter which is tapered in steps, an inner diameter defined by a central bore extending longitudinally through the full length of the device. A slot running the length of the device allows wires extending from connector to be slid into the bore. Inserts are removed from the connector assembly by sliding the device into the connector from the rear and applying a linear force to the device to push the insert from the connector.
