Portable Compact J-Clip Remocal Tool for Optical Link Cards

      Disclosed is a low cost portable removal tool and method which
allows the removal of cards which utilize a J-Clip design for the
securing mechanism to carriers.

      The removal tool is made up of two parts - the Base 1 and the
Lever 2.  The Base 1 is indexed over the J-Clips on the back side of
the carrier.  The Locator 3 is indexed on the carrier edge and the
J-Clip Actuators 4 over the J-Clips simultaneously.  This action
releases the securing mechanism of the J-Clips.  While the Base 1 is
actuated, the Pivot Lever 2 gently picks up on the edge of the card
and rolls the card apart from the carrier (Figure).
