Simplifies the task of inserting or removing wool or foam plugs when working with GC inlet liners, packed GC columns, solvent desorption tubes, thermal desorption tubes, and purge traps. The forked end is used to feed the plug into tubing, leaving it cleanly when the tool is removed. The hooked end will not disrupt the packing material when the plug is removed. Made of stainless steel, this tool can be used with 1 - 4 mm I.D. tubing (glass, metal, and PTFE).
