    A quick search of Google shows that many folks are having trouble removing these things once plugged in. This is a tuner cable that runs from the ICOM 7300 to LDG auto antenna tuner. I don't want to break the rig. It appears to have a tab on top and one on bottom but not sure how they can expect someone to pinch them both at the same time unless there is some special tool for that. Any ideas?

    Finger and thumb on the two ends, rock in line with the pins, and pull gently. Looks like they are friction bumps, not locking tabs.

    "In line with the pins" = Up/Down or Side/Side?

    Side to side (red to black) slightly... pull more than rock.

    3 way pileup! :p
    We all said the same thing at the same time.

    THANK YOU! THANK YOU! N3PM Photo really helped. I have struggled with that Cord for years. Tuner finally FAILED and I HAD to remove the cord. Followed your directions to the letter and it came right off. Thank you, gentlemen. 73, Doc, W7DOK
