Plastic mold release wedges are used to aid in removing medium to large parts from a mold. The wedges are inserted around the perimeter of the mold, between the mold and the part, and then gently driven in until the piece pops out. The theory behind using a wedge is that concentrated pressure is applied to that portion of the part not yet released. To make this scheme work it is necessary to use a sufficient number of wedges and to progress around the mold tapping each wedge in turn. One wedge will not help. The soft polyethylene construction will not scratch the mold or the part.
