XT60 plugs

XT60 plugs

Postby tigger » Sat Jun 18, 2016 8:27 pm

Not sure how many modelers use this type of plug but i have used them over the last couple of years and they can be a real pain trying to get them apart especially if the are inside the fuse. A good pull and you can usually damage something for sure or if you're tempted to pull by the wires it can be terminal as well.
I have a remedy that works for me and it only involves drilling two 1.5 mm holes about 2 mm deep and then i just use circlip pliers to push the plug halves apart. The 3 photos will tell the story. Hope it's of use to someone.
Cheers Tigger

Here is the final photo with the plugs apart. No drama with shorting out etc and life is easy with XT60 plugs now.

That's a great idea Tigger. I'll try this out next time I'm dealing with those. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Leverriere, it also works on Deans plugs as well.
