I use a tool to push the pin out after leaving a badly crimped pin in the housing when pulling the wire, but the tool is generic and a bit too big and a tight fit, so just wanted something designed for the job.Having said that a paperclip seems to work quite well pushed inside the pin.

I'd be concerned about pushing anything inside the pins in case you splayed them open resulting in a poor contact if trying to re-use them again.

Hence the correct tool, which is a tubular support, with an internal push rod to pop the pin out.

I wouldnt be putting any tool in there at all, when it simply is not needed.
