    Cage Nut Tool

    We have have used Comms Express for sometime and one of my colleagues has found this handy little tool which would have saved my fingers many a time. Certainly one to get and keep in your tool kit.

    Nowt wrong with slicing your fingers, stripping nuckles, breaking nails, stabbing yourself and loosing a load of nuts. It's what makes us hardened I.T. Geeks..

    It does but I have a hard time getting the nuts out the cages and have had some nasty cuts from some of the cabs. I do quite a bit of cab rebuilding and tidying and its certainly one tool that will help be big time. Wish it was made along time ago!!!!!

    I Just use a flat bladed screw driver. Get one side of the cage nut in the square hole and push the other side with a flat bladed screw driver.
    Not sure I'd want to spend £15 to do that, but I have to admit, it would be a very useful tool to have.

    That doesn't work quite so well getting them out believe me.. I've used one of these for many years now and they are brilliant ...
