The Original Pin Remover by MOLEX
This is the only official Pin Remover for the extraction of ATX, PCI-E and EPS crimp-terminals – and of course it is the finest. When you own the MOLEX, you will have the best imaginable chance to succeed with a technically clean pin removal.
Made in the USA, the one and only official extraction tool! By the creator of the official ATX, PCI-E and EPS specifications: The MOLEX Company. The 100% perfect manufacturing by MOLEX is 100% according to the specifications which the MOLEX Company uses for all their connectors and pins. No compromise, no manufacturing tolerances. This extraction tool is the opposite of the modding-toys, which try to imitate it for lower cost or higher profitability.

Why are other extraction tools or methods avoided by professionals
Of course you could extract the wires from the connectors by using other tools or even staples, but the other “tips” are mostly thicker than the tips of the original MOLEX Pin Remover.
Why are other extraction tool tips usually thicker?
Thicker tips would be needed with lower quality materials, so they do not instantly break off if used slightly wrong. The MOLEX Pin Remover tips can only get damaged with serious human error in the extraction process.
Thicker tips would theoretically make the extraction easier, which many think is the main quality aspect, but that is very short-sighted and dangerous. If something is thicker than the MOLEX tip specifications, it will damage or reduce the highly important flexibility of the locking tabs on the sides of the crimp terminal.
What would happen?
The crimp terminal would not hold securely in the connector later on and could move out of position / fall out of the connector. In worst case you would end up with electrical damage to the devices in your system.
Imitations and the story behind it
Sometimes there are products, which try to look like the MOLEX original, on the market. These have been created by shop owners, who were not happy with the low (or no) profitability they had on selling the original Pin Remover by MOLEX. They then tried to offer a low-cost imitation of the basic shape, which is covered by tape or shrink in the whole grip-area, so the visible rest “could” look like an original MOLEX tool to the inexperienced user.
With MDPC you will only get the best product, not just similar, close or nearly identical. No compromise, because tools are not toys.
