Works but bad instructions

Written By Don55, Western NC on Saturday, December 13, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I gave this a 3 because of the instructions. They are very confusing and if you follow them to the letter you will cut off all tabs and ruin the kit.I recommend matching the tabs with the mounts on your old system. That helped me considerably

Pros: Works

Cons: Instructions

The instructions are just a little vague but the tech support team at Crutchfield made it really easy. I used some cutters to remove unneeded tabs.

A must have!

Written By KC, Idaho on Wednesday, December 03, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This dash kit makes for a very clean, easy install that looks completely professional.

Pros: Good fit and finish; made for a perfect finished product install. Crutchfield tech support was 100% a shining star for me when I wanted help to make sure I was doing things right.

Cons: Directions on which tabs to keep etc. are a bit weak. You have to use some mechanical common sense, which is tough for me- on the other hand, if I can do this, anyone can do it!

Too much cutting and customizing.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Lots of work to install. Instructions were vague.

Cons: Need to have a template that has lees adaptation and cutting. terrible directions. Tabs are hard to remove. Required more tools are needed than recommended.

Dash Kit Works Great, Instructions Awful

Written By EricB, West Newton, MA on Wednesday, November 12, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This kit looks great once assembled and installed, and the plastic seems sturdy enough to handle the job long term. If these were the only things that were to be judged, this would be a 5-star review. The problem is that the directions that were included with the kit were awful and misleading. Perhaps someone noticed this, because the directions that are available for this same product on the Crutchfield website have been altered to reflect clearer instructions. But even the online instructions are a bit unclear. For example, you have to figure out for yourself what is the ISO trim ring (the ring that goes around the face of the head unit). Plus the directions don't really show all angles of the bracket, which would have been nicer.
I used this kit to install a new head unit in a 1997 Buick Skylark. Once I figured out what to do, cutting off all of the unneeded tabs was a fairly simple process. You can score and snap off tabs that you don't need using a sharp blade, a small hack saw, a Dremel-type tool, or whatever works for you. The cutting off part doesn't have to be pretty; everything except the front ISO trim ring will be hidden by the final install. After cutting off the unneeded tabs, snap the side brackets onto the ISO trim ring. Then attach to your head unit using screws.

Pros: Looks great! Plastic is sturdy. Was a perfect fit once all unneeded tabs were removed. Final install looks professional.

Cons: Printed directions were terrible. Directions available online were better.

Good Product, Horrible Instructions

Written By DaddioJH, Northport, Long Island, NY on Friday, November 07, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This works well. I used it to install a double din Jensen VX7020 navigation receiver in my 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche on the recommendation of Crutchfield. They were right on. However, the instructions were so bad about which plastic pieces to cut off I probably lost an hour talking to Crutchfield and experimenting by cutting one plastic piece at a time until it fit..

Pros: Fits like a glove.

Cons: Written instructions were terrible!

Fussy, but it works

Written By E Harris, Denver, CO on Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This kit tries to fit into too many applications. The instructions were hard to decipher for my vehicle and I ended up having to remove more tabs that the instructions told me too for my vehicle. I ended up figuring it out by doing multiple test fits under it went in right. Breaking off the extra tabs was not easy either, I ended up using a Dremel to be sure I got a clean cut and didn't break the kit. I also had to carve out a bit of plastic to fit the screws through to the receiver.

However, once I figured out what worked, the receiver was held in place securely into the kit and then the truck.

Pros: Decent final placement.

Cons: Difficult instructions. Hard to remove unneeded tabs.

Written By Bob T, Cincinnati on Tuesday, October 07, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Well, it worked in the end. Instructions were HORRIBLE. Very unclear on what tabs needed to be cut or not. Had to re-drill mounting holes to fit double DIN receiver mount holes. Very unclear on what pieces were needed for my vehicle. Pretty much made it up as I went.

Pros: Kind of worked, with modifications.

Cons: Instructions were HORRIBLE. Very unclear on what tabs needed to be cut or not. Had to re-drill mounting holes to fit double DIN receiver mount holes. Very unclear on what pieces were needed for my vehicle. Pretty much made it up as I went.

Works Just Fine, Once You Figure Out Your're Better Off Not Reading th

Written By k, Sacramento, CA on Friday, October 03, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The product itself worked just fine, once you figure it out. The reason I gave 3 Stars is simply because of the instructions. Turned what should have been a 1 hour deck install to 3 hours, just because you have no idea which section actually applies to your vehicle, and are paranoid you're going to clip the wrong tabs off. Obviously they are trying to make this product fit every vehicle manufactured since 1932, but the instructions don't live up to that goal - a blind monkey could have done a better job. "Cut all the tabs OFF". "No, don't cut all the tabs off". "Cut the tabs off the side brackets NOT shown above" - what?! Did the graphic artist take the day off when that section was written?

You're better off just looking at the bracket and face pieces, seeing what mounting holes your have on your dash, and then clipping off what doesn't belong.

Pros: Does what it supposed to do; deck doesn't rattle around.

Cons: Instructions are severely in need of re-writing, with graphics that more clearly show what tabs are to be cut. Or just make bracket kits for each Make of vehicle, with instructions that are clear, rather than trying to match every vehicle on the planet with one bracket kit.

Cheap plastic look.

Pros: Better than nothing.

Cons: Requires extensive modification to fit your vehicle. Kit not specific for vehicle. Spent lots of time cutting off extra plastic pieces for other models. Terrible instructions. Cheap 1980's finish. Recommend the install kit that starts with "S" instead.

Pros: perfect fit and hold the head unit well

Cons: Instructions are horrible, it took me a second kit with Crutchfield's own instructions to get it to work.

Worked well.

Written By ShaneB, Missouri on Tuesday, September 09, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wanted to give it 5 Stars but one of the side pieces wouldn't clip on properly and I have to ding the review for that. One side clipped on, but the other side wasn't molded properly and I couldn't get it to clip in place. I finally gave up and just put it in with it bulging a little. You can't see it once the dash is in place covering it and it looks really nice. It looks like a pro did the installation and I'm proud of how it all came out.

For free(ish) I really can't complain.

Pros: 1. It looks really nice once installed. 2. It mounted perfectly with no adjustment hassles at all. 3. The plastic is very sturdy.

Cons: It's hard to remove the unused mounting plates. Although that's a good thing, I kind of deformed the piece of plastic I needed when I cut the unused parts off. So when you do this, score it first with a Stanley knife on both sides then use some heavy wire cutters to cut along the score marks. That's what I did, or you could use a Dremel cutting tool.

Dash mounting kit

Written By Justme, Albuquerque, NM on Saturday, August 23, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Well one needs something but this is just cheep plastic. The screws supplied didn't fit, so I had to supply my own. Much modifying was needed. Instructions on how to attached must have been for some vehicle from Mars. I was on my own. I can only hope it holds the unit. Crutchfield needs to find a different kit for a GMC canyon. Usually Crutchfield's information on how to do is much better than this.

Pros: It filled the gap between the radio and auto dash.

Cons: Nothing worked without modification.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The dash kit itself fits into a 2004 Alero, but you are going to have to figure out how it fits yourself. The instructions are pretty much useless, but after removing some extra tabs it did fit correctly.

Pros: Fit into the hole of where the old double stack stereo was and now hold a smaller stereo.

Cons: Instructions were absolutely worthless

This product fit when others did not. The instructions were a little confusing but the Crutchfield tech services walked me through the fit process. Match the side tabs to your factory unit and remove all others carefully with a fine tooth hacksaw.

Pros: Perfect fit. Crutchfield Service Tech was excellent

Cons: cutting the pieces off that you did not need was confusing.

Pros: made the job much easier

Cons: instructions not that clear. had to rely on common sense and trial and error to get the proper arrangement. suggest the assembly be attempted by some third party (someone who has never assembled this bracket before, and discuss with the author of the instructions.

Simple once figured out...

Written By JP, North Augusta SC on Sunday, August 03, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Put this into a 2003 Avalanche. Useless instructions can be replaced by: The two side mounts are not the same. Look at your factory stereo and match up the plastic tabs with the ones on your stereo. Cut off all the other tabs. Snap the sides into the rectangular cover piece(takes a bit of a push to get the two side tabs into their slots but should lock in straight) and mount to your new stereo (I was able to get three screws per side to fit). The Crutchfield notes on here state that the back metal mount would have to be cut out of my truck to put a KW-V200BT but I decided to see how close it really was. It was tight but all three screws tightened down and the factory trim went back on so that it looks extremely nice.

This kit did the job resulting in a clean nice look with no gaps or voids.

Pros: Looks as a factor installation.

Cons: The plastic mold flashing required complete removal to fit joints correctly. One joint's plastic being short filled on the face, requiring heating and spreading the receiving slot open enough to receive the side tab carefully without cracking.

Easy to install

Written By Anonymous, Texas on Friday, July 25, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The confusion with breaking off tabs was not nearly as bad as I've ready here. You simply need to end up with the same mounting tab locations that your stock unit had. You literally have a map of the necessary tabs in your possession when you take the old head unit out, so you need not bother with the instructions if you find them confusing.

Pros: Easy to use. Free with my head unit.

Make Sure You Have a Cut-off Tool to Fabricate

Written By VA Steve 55, Leesburg, VA on Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Short story - it does work with a JVC double-DIN deck in a 2004 Silverado 1500. The long story - make sure you have a rotary tool or some other cut-off tool to fabricate this bracket for your particular vehicle. "Universal" means this is basically raw material that the user must modify to fit their vehicle. It ships with mounting tabs for every vehicle it fits, and you have to cut off the tabs that interfere with your fit. It is made of plastic so make sure your don't ruin the brackets taking off the unnecessary tabs. I used a small rotary tool (name brand) with a cut-off wheel. Also, I agree completely with Bruce from Charlotte, the instructions are useless, follow his advice.

Pros: It works and looks nice when done.

Cons: Be prepared to spend some time fabricating and the instructions are crazy.

What a waste

Written By RyanW, Minot AFB, ND on Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Instructions are abhorrent! Absolutely garbage and very difficult to follow. They read like a "choose your own adventure" book in a two page pamphlet except that they never get you to the end. Disgustingly vague and practically useless. I am now forced to purchase an entirely new bracket because whoever wrote these installation instructions couldn't keep them straight.

Pros: What?

Cons: Instructions do more harm than good.

Crutchfield response on Tuesday, July 22, 2014 We're sorry to hear you had trouble with the instructions that came with the kit. We've refunded the cost of the replacement kit, and when you get it, don't hesitate to call our Tech Support team to get some help with it. They can help you pick the safe path through that story!

A lot of tabs to break off. Had to really study the instructions to make sure and not screw it up. The face plate was kind of a tight fit and bows out a little when installed, but you can't tell when the vehicle dash trim is installed. I hope the plastic holds up over time.

Pros: It did adapt the radio to the truck as advertised.

Cons: Takes a bit of study to make sure and break off the correct tabs.

Written By DaveS, Portland, OR on Tuesday, May 27, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This adapter worked fine for installing a new head unit into our 2003 Pontiac Grand Am. As expected, it's just a big piece of plastic with tabs in the right spot to bolt to the OEM mounting holes. Where I think it could be improved is either a more specific product offering for each model of car, or a better way to customize it. As it is you get somewhat cryptic instructions that tell you to remove certain tabs depending on what model car you have. What you aren't told is how best to accomplish that, and the tabs aren't scored or otherwise marked in a way make them easy to remove (which kind of makes sense since that would also necessarily weaken them, which is not what you want for the tabs you keep). I ended up using wire snippers to remove the unwanted tabs, and it was difficult and the result a bit ugly. But it did work.

Pros: Does the job

Cons: Tabs are hard to remove cleanly, instructions are a bit cryptic

The instructions were very confusing. I had to take the old unit out of the car first and use it as a guide.

Pros: Made the install look nice.

Cons: POOR Instructions!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good product. Looks good installed. The instructions are lacking clarity for sure. The product required a great deal of manipulating to fit my application. Best advice is to remove the factory head unit and compare the pieces to make them match. If you are looking for a kit that you can pull out of the box and it install it this is not the one.

Pros: Works and looks good

Cons: Requires a great deal of manipulating and thoughtful decision making.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The instructions were confusing. The plasitc parts had bumps and seepage from their moiding process. However, I was able to get a good result by cleaning up parts and using my old unit as a guide.

Pros: After much study and calls it provided a strong conversion unit.

Cons: Poor instructions and quality control.
