Take a stout pair of tweezers, shape the jaws so the inside surfaces are parallel. Square off the end, top and lower edges. In one of these jaws cut a narrow slit, a little wider than the diameter of a guard pin. The top end of this lip is slightly beveled for the guard pin stud to rest on. The tool is now ready to use.
Simply grasp the lever as shown in cut and with a needle securely held in the handle and with its point slightly flattened, the broken guard pin is easily pushed out.
