Just wait a week and check it again. I found a lot of stuff won't ship on one day but a week or so later it will. Wish I could have been more help on the issue of the disconnect tool. I havent worked on mine yet to find out first hand

Amazons response to my complaint


"I checked out these items on our website and verified it can't be shipped to your shipping address because of warranty and legal restrictions limit for some products.

Please understand that this policy is based on warranty issues, manufacturer restrictions, and Federal law, and as such, cannot be amended at the discretion of our Customer Service department."

What utter and complete BS


I needed it now and found the same one at O'Reilly's

I recently found some land cruiser parts that said free shipping to Continental US, put my address in and it said "cant ship International" WTF!! kind of sure AK is on the continent. maybe they are thinking Contiguous US.

I thought "prime" meant free shipping to AK, but apparently not. In the last 2 weeks they refunded my order on a Milwaukee cordless leaf blower (for blowing out equipment radiators), and wouldn't ship a bug deflector, seat cover, stake pockets, Lincoln grease gun hose, metal cutting saw, Silver Streak pencils, and a few other things.
But no issue shipping 4 gallons of cooling liquid for the TIG welder or a 12ft long 'Mr long arm" extenda pole for washing my solar panels.

The thing too is no option to pay extra for shipping, just 'nope, can't ship", like it's going to Cambodia or Bangladesh.

1. Why would warranty issues or manufactures restrictions limit shipping to Alaska?
2. Unless the item is HazMat, why would Federal law prohibit shipping? Even then, the buyer should be offered the opportunity to pay the HazMat fees and get it shipped.
Sounds like someone offered a service without doing their due diligence research in what was involved.
I have had some luck with calling vendors and asking if they are willing to ship USPS on small items, same cost shipping anywhere in the UNITED STATES, this includes Alaska and Hawaii.
It is my opinion that people working for vendors either don't care, "not my job", didn't learn much in school, "Cramming for tests instead of LEARNING, just lazy "DILLIGAF?
