It only requires ONE tool for extracting PLCC & SOJ chips of all pin configurations and LCC 32- and 44-pin chips (E-PROM's). The plastic arms sit on the side, thus avoiding an extraction force on the socket itself. This is most important for SMD sockets, which would otherwise be torn off the board. The same tool can be used for all sockets built according to JEDEC standards and having diagonal entry slots.
