    if you mean rewireable fuses, then no. but you should consider upgrading the fusebox to a modern MCB and RCD protected unit.

    They are designed to be pulled out by hand. Generations of housewives before you have managed.

    @James73@James73 - as above, designed for fingers only. They tend to be old and brittle and will probably disintegrate or worse if you attempt removal with any tool. A little wiggling top & bottom should ease them out.

    The only tools you need are your hands, using anything else will likely lead to breaking the carrier.
    Sometimes they do get a bit stuck if they’ve been in place for a long time, but a bit of up and down wiggling should shift them.

    Just remember to pay attention to the label on the cover (which is missing from your pic) and turn the main switch off before pulling a fuse.

    Why not get some mcb type replacements for it, saves changing the whole board and just flick a switch
