Seems everything is held together with push pins any more. I tend to butcher them popping them out with a screwdriver. I'm sure there is a tool for this....but is there a CHEAP workable tool? What's everybody else using to remove push pins?

I have just been using a small flathead screwdriver...if you put the tip into the recessed area and then lightly twist the screwdriver, that center pin should pop up. I then remove that center pin and the other piece. When I go to re-install I simply reverse the process.

With that said, I am not sure if there is a specific tool for the job.

i just took a piece of 1.5'' by like 10ga. about 8" long, cut a slot in the end of it about a 1/4 wide (just wide enough for the inner pin) and about an inch deep, bevel the end (like a wood chisle, but not that sharp), and then put about a 20 degree bend about 3 inches from the forked end. remove all burrs and sharp edges per ASME 14.5M-1994;)

just think prybar, pickle fork when ur making it

i can usually get about 7-8 cycles out of a pin before its trashed

Not a cheap tool, but high quality.pinch once for pin lift and spring opens tool back up.Place jaws under base of pin and pince to remove. part # 3729 (KD tool) that you can get at NAPA along with the pins. Pins are about the same price as dealer,part # 665-2389.

I found a great tool in the local hardware store. Its called a thumb tack remover. It looks like a screwdriver with a slightly bent end and a fork at that end (like a small claw hammer). You would swear it was meant for the push pins. Works like a champ

I remeber seeing the tool in the Teryx Service Manual. I don't have the part number with me, but they most likley want an arm and a leg for it.

made the perfect tool out of a $3.00 pair of pliers off the cheap tool bin and die grinder and about 5 minutes. added bonus is throw them in the glove box so you have pliers and pin tool with you always
they work absolutely perfect could make these all day.
oh you do have to make the node a little narower to fit the grove.

also dosen't harm pins at all

Kind of the same idea but I used an old pair of side cutters and die grind a small hole closer to the pointed end, works good on digging them out and when you get mad at it you can cut its head off!:laugh:

That's very similar to what I ended up doing....seems to work fine. Bottom line...everything on the market is waaaayyyy overpriced, just make your own.
