SUMMARY: Something to make life a little easier….
If you ever tried to pry out a 4 pin Molex plug in a tight space, you’re going to love this product. This is particularly handy for the “space-challenged” micro ATX cases, although I’ve had my share of frustration trying to wiggle out a power plug on a hard drive or CD ROM in a tight spot.
- 10 Replacement Molex Connectors, in four colors and UV Reactive
- Pin extraction tool
- Instruction sheet
It’s a very simple, elegant solution – compared to a standard plug, the Vantec plug features curved arches:
Once you change plugs, it looks like this:
Insert it into a connector, like so…
Now to remove the Vantec plug, simply squeeze the arches and it pops out:
As I said, an elegant solution!
The pin extraction tool is inserted into a Molex connector; then push the plunger and the pin pops out – very easy. Obviously, be careful to ensure that the pins are inserted into the Vantec plug in the right order – just do the pins one at a time and line up the plugs the same way.
If you routinely change plugs, or simply want some good looking UV connectors to showcase, the Vantec plugs are a neat way to go.
Thanks again to Vantec for sending this our way.
