You don't actually need a pin punch to pop the pins. If you have precision screwdrivers those would work too, that's what I used. They're the small thin screwdrivers used for shit like eyeglasses and small screws. Anything thin and rigid that you can tap with a small hammer can be used, though. BTW, I used a precision screwdriver and a big pair of vice grips lmao. So really, you can use anything.
