    They are called Packard 56 connectors. I just use a small pair of needle nose pliers on the male ones and a small flat screw driver on the female ones.

      My smallest screwdriver was still a bit too fat so I flattened the end of a piece of coathanger and tweaked it with a file.

        Yeah, Needlenose work best, but you could also nudge the 'barb' bit over with the screwdriver enough to pull the connector out of the holder. Just be sure you're pushing at the spade from the correct (barb) side. The other side won't move.

          You can buy special crimpers for them but I use high quality (Greenlee, Klein or T&B) electrical crimpers and make sure you fold the tabs right. You'll know what I mean when you do it. They can always be soldered after crimping but I never bothered.

            Had I known they were that cheap I'd have bought one. Maybe still will.

            I just searched Packard 56 on Ebay. That's where I got mine.
