Abstract

Proposed is a tool that removes Printed Wiring Boards (PWB) and electrical harnesses from chassis assemblies. The accompanying figure shows tool 10 composed of a shaft 14. Shaft 14 has a hole 16 therein that is located at the end opposite an elongated handle 12. The hole in shaft 14 slips over barbed ends of plastic standoffs to relieve a snap-fit condition allowing for the removal of a PWB or harness fastened thereto. The overall length A of tool 10 is approximately 3-inches. Dimensions B and D of handle 12 and shaft 14 are 1.5-inches long. The diameter C of handle 12 is approximately 0.5-inches and the depth E of hole 16 is approximately 1.0-inches. One skilled in the art will recognize that tool 10 can be made to accommodate specific size standoffs.
