Claim of US Patent No. 10,070,548

1. A circuit board housing assembly, comprising:a housing;
a circuit board attached to the housing, wherein the circuit board includes at least one opening; and
a board removal tool comprising a holding member, at least one rivet and at least one pin;
wherein the holding member has at least one aperture corresponding to the at least one opening of the circuit board;
wherein the at least one rivet is inserted in the at least one opening and the at least one aperture, the at least one rivet has a head with a proximal end and a distal end and a central axis, the head has an internal passage extending substantially parallel to the central axis from the proximal end to the distal end of the head, and the distal end of the head is mechanically connected to at least two legs extending distally from the head and having an internal surface that faces the central axis; and
wherein when the at least one pin is inserted into the internal passage along a direction from the proximal end towards the distal end of the head of the at least one rivet, the at least one pin contacts the internal surface of the at least two legs to apply force on the at least two legs in a direction substantially perpendicular to the central axis.
