All types of probes can be removed with fingers, tweezers or small pliers by grasping the head or shank and pulling straight up out of the socket or termination pin. Be careful not to damage the shank or the tips if the probe is to be reused.
Headed probes are easiest to remove with a PERX Probe Extraction Tool. Hook the tool under the head and pull straight up.
