    Works well

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
    Used this to install a Pioneer FH-X700BT double DIN unit in a 2000 Mercedes ML320. Install went well and didn't have to modify anything to make it fit. The only downside that I can see is that the trim ring attaches via snap on tabs. The tabs are small and could potentially break off if not careful enough. I didn't have any issues though.
    Easy install. Trim has good quality

    Excellent mounting kit

    This is the most well made mounting kit I've seen. Its made of powder coated heavy gauge steel. Also there are no sharp edges like some of the other adapters
    Well made
    could use standard mounting holes.

    Great product, works for any double-din head unit from Clarion! Only downside, is that I'm now upgrading to a different brand head unit and I'm not sure if it will work right with it. Oh well, still a great product.
    Fits Clarion products perfectly, fits in dash great, looks amazing.

    Great for custom installs

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
    I ordered this kit to install a double din head unit into a din and half opening in my 2000 model truck. Yes, I had to cut the opening in my dash, but not much. This Clarion 2DBKT Mounting Kit worked fantastic for what I needed. It automatically gave me the dimensions that I need to trim my dash opening to and then when installed provided the needed support for the new head unit. I am very pleased with the outcome this product helped me achieve.
    This product gives you many mounting options with its multiple bend tabs.
    The only cons are that the tiny screws that are used to attach the head unit brackets to the din sleeve are very easy to lose, and that it doesn't use a standard din release tool...this could also be a pro though also, making theft of the head unit harder. Also a lack of hardware to mount din sleeve to actual dash.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
    Bought a Pioneer AVH-P2400BT, but later realized it didn't come with a double din mounting sleeve. Decided to go with this instead of the more expensive Pioneer ADTVA133 sleeve after reading a Crutchfield positive review as well some Mercedes forums hearing that the Clarion 2DBKT trim fits perfect with minimal trimming. Fitment was perfect and mounting was straight-forward with the Clarion's supplied hardware.
    Quality hardware, perfect fitment for the 2001 Mercedes Benz CLK

    Custom insatll

    When installing a double din head unit in a vehicle already equipped with an existing double din. You simply transfer the existing brackets and usually its a
    painless install, but when installing one in a custom application a sleeve such as
    this is essential!! This sleeve is very strong and allowed for a very secure install in
    my 1992 Ford SHO

    not what I expected

    Written By Jason, Portland Oregon on Monday, January 04, 2010
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
    I expected this to be a universal mounting kit that I could use with the DIN sleeve that came with my new stereo, unfortunately that was not the case.

    This is just a DIN sleeve and trim ring, not a mounting kit.

    I installed a pioneer nav unit with this kit. It worked EXCELLENT. I only had to sand the trim ring a little in the corners. The best option for Mercedes out there.

    Used this kit to fit a Pioneer AVIC-D3 Navigation unit in a 2000 Saab 9-5
    Aero. The sleeve and brackets fit the unit perfectly and the trim ring fit
    better than the ring included with the Nav unit, and also matched the dash
