Remove and replace “Swing Out” friction pins. Here is a problem that every auto glass technician has faced: how do you remove the friction pin from “swing out” windows without breaking the latch? The answer is Equalizer’s pin removal pliers. The jaws have five adjustable settings that will fit any swing out window. To remove the friction pin, open the jaws wide enough for the plier push pin to engage the friction pin. When reinstalling the retainer pin, swing the plier's push pin around until it is upside down and use the depression in the plier push pin to hold the friction pin in place. Start the friction pin and then use the plier pusher pin to push the friction pin into the latch.
