KATO Tangless Removal Tools are unique in the industry. They offer quick, non-destructive removal of Tangless inserts, preventing damage to castings. Extraction tools for tanged inserts are wedged-shaped tools that sport a sharp blade. That blade has to be jammed into the tanged insert, and this can easily cause damage to expensive parent material. Tangless removal tools allow you to avoid these costly misfortunes.

Furthermore, the Tangless Hand Removal Tool allows you to back out inserts that were installed too deeply, giving you the ultimate control over your inserts.

The KATO Tangless Electric Removal Tool affords you all the speed and convenience of the KATO Electric Tool when used for high-volume removal of inserts. The removal mandrel is simply taken out of the blue Removal Tool handle and placed into a Round Shank Electric Driver. After this, you simply use the electric tool as usual. The removal mandrel will thread into the insert, grab the removal notch on the top thread, and auto-reverse, removing the insert.

A spare pawl, spring, and pin are included with every CT1600R series removal tool (except metric sizes). The spare parts are packaged in at plastic tube, and are located in the back of the blue handle.
