Abstract

A shifting tool that utilizes collet fingers which expand and conform to mating features which are designed to create a shouldered area that will allow force to be transferred through the shifting tools collet fingers into the shouldering area and act upon the mating tool part that is to perform a specifically designed function. Should the release mechanism that would free the collet fingers from their conformed and shouldered state fail, the shoulder as well as its geometry is specifically designed to yield when a calculated amount of force is applied forming new geometry that will allow the collet fingers to relieve themselves from their previously unrecoverable state.
