More and more of our products use U.FL connectors, so we wrote a tutorial on "Three Quick Tips About Using U.FL. However, even when following all the best practices outlined in the tutorial, we managed to rip more than a few connectors apart and it's always a disaster! Are you having issues disconnecting your U.FL connectors from each other? Well now you can ease the disconnection process with this handy little extraction tool. We have started to use this in our internal testing and we think you will like it too!
Specifically, this jig is for withdrawing U.FL-LP-040 and U.FL-LP-066 connectors from a seated position. The L-shaped bending portion of the jig is hooked on the connector cap to provide stable pressure & minimize the risk of damaging the U.FL SMD connector on your board.
Note: This product does not include the U.FL cable or NEO-M8U breakout board's U.FL mating connector. The U.FL cables and connectors on breakout boards will need to be purchased separately.
Whether it's for assembling a kit, hacking an enclosure, or creating your own parts; the DIY skill is all about knowing how to use tools and the techniques associated with them.
Skill Level: Noob - Basic assembly is required. You may need to provide your own basic tools like a screwdriver, hammer or scissors. Power tools or custom parts are not required. Instructions will be included and easy to follow. Sewing may be required, but only with included patterns.

The U.FL Push Pull Tool tol-20687 does push AND pull of U.FL-LP-040 and U.FL-LP-066 connectors . So why is the U.FL Removal Tool, TOL-19929. only remove and cost twice as much. Why would I select one the TOL-20657 ( $15) versus the TOL-19929 ($25) ? Thank you for your time.
Is there an insertion tool? That’s the one I have a problem with.
18$ for this tool? Are you sure its not a typo?
considering it's an official hirose tool, it's not a typo. quite a steal actually.
To disconnect a u.FL connector using the tool, slide the end with the two teeth labeled as "u.FL" around the u.FL connector. Pull the u.FL connector up and away from the board. Avoid pulling the u.FL connector at an angle like a crowbar. ;)
Note: The hole in the tool is for sliding a keyring through.
