Straighten A Bent Plug-In Pin

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

STRAIGHTEN A BENT PLUG-IN PIN
Although I’m not particularly handy, that doesn’t stop me from tinkering inside my computer and setting up peripherals. However, when I have a cable or a component with plug-in pins and make one false move when I’m trying to insert it, a pin gets bent. How can I get it straight?

First, I salute your independence and courage. Simply empty the lead from a 7-millimeter mechanical pencil and gently insert the bent pin in the hollow tip to straighten it. It works every time.
