AJ from Arkansas on 4/23/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Even if you only install one car stereo, you will want this tool. It saves your dash and trim panels from damage during removal. Far superior to a flat head screwdriver. It's so inexpensive, I don't know why anyone would go without for an install. It pays for itself in peace of mind alone the first time you use it.

Pros: Price, ease of use.

Cons: None, seriously.

great tool

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This tool was great for removing the panels in my F150. The panels came apart with no damage and it was very easy to open things up. I will be using this tool for any other times I need to remove panels from a vehicle.

Pros:

Cons:

Simple and it works.

RB from Iowa on 1/27/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a simple tool that works as one would expect. Normally I use a flat head screw driver to pry apart panels, but it's easy to damage your interior. This tool gets into tight spaces easily without damaging your interior. I feel as if this tool would break before a piece of your interior would.

Pros: Simple. Works.

Cons: None.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Pro.Fit trim tool broke within 5 seconds of trying to pry off my dash trim. I even had the dash trim somewhat loosened by using a screwdriver because this tool was too thick. Even though it broke I was able to use it after prying more with a screwdriver.

Pros: Not expensive

Cons: Broke almost immediately.

Pro Fit Trip Panel Tool

Heather from Colorado Springs, CO on 10/7/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

At first, I was wondering why I needed a tool to take apart a dash, that's what a flat head is for. Then I thought about all of the imperfections I created using a screw driver all of the time. Six dollars is worth the try. I had one piece of the dash that was stuck. I had to pry hard to get it off, and there was no damage after. Worth the six dollars!

Pros: No damage to dash.

Cons: None

Anthony from NJ on 10/7/2014

Extremely Disappointed

John V Southern California from Mission Viejo, California on 8/31/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Ordered three of these tools. Two were new and fine. The third was in a wrinkled, FILTHY bag, looked like it was from the bottom of a dumpster. The tool inside has dirty scratches and marks on it. Very, very obviously used. Who could ship this? So dirty it could never be shipped by mistake. Trash material only.

Pros: These tools work well when used as intended.

Cons: Got what appeared to be a very used product

Crutchfield response on September 3, 2014 Upon seeing John's review, our Customer Service team refunded him for that third tool. We also alerted our shipping department to the matter. Even if the tool was new and suffered some warehouse damage, it shouldn't have been sent out in that condition.

Jason from Commerce, MI on 8/10/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This tool was recommended to me while I shopped for my new stereo, and let me tell you, it was worth the money. Easy to use, works great, and didn't damage anything. Which is more than I can say for the metal butter knife I used on my last car. That dashboard STILL cringes when I get in the driver's seat with anything shiny.

Pros: Easy to use, doesn't do any damage, nice and inexpensive

Cons: They don't make these things for wives.

Very basic tool, but did exactly what I needed it to do. Tip is pointed just enough to get behind the trim without damaging anything in the process. Price is right also.

Why I hadn't bought this tool earlier is beyond me. Incredibly useful tool for any number of applications. Look at the price, and just buy it.

Pros: If you don't have it, buy it.

Cons: None.

Useful but not necessary

FatSteve001 from Athens, TN on 4/25/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this so that I wouldn't mess up my interior taking it apart. I didn't use it at first because the gap between the pieces of my console were too close, so I just used a ruler... I took my radio back out to change some of my setup and I used it the next time though!

Pros: Less likely to scuff your console

Cons: Thicker than it needs to be at the tip. It should have a finer point.

Amanda from Tyler, TX on 4/3/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This tool worked very well; it did not scratch the panels and made removing the dash very easy. It is plastic so you need to be careful when applying force and be careful of prying with just the tip. I have used it twice and it has been a great tool to have.

Pros: Very effective, makes removing the panels easier

Cons: Be careful when prying so you don't break it.

Mike R from Athens, GA on 2/14/2014

This little piece of plastic is nothing short of amazing! I have some similar tools made of metal and I've always had to be very careful to not scratch the finish or cut the edge of what I'm prying up, but not with this tool. I could just shove it under an edge and run it along pushing the cable in behind it and it came out perfect. I wish I'd got this a long time ago. Could have saved a lot of time spend touching up scratches.

Pros: very robust, nice edge for getting into and under tight areas.

Cons: none

Panel Tool

AJW from Southern, IN on 1/14/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not a bad tool in pinch situations, however if you're really trying to get out something (let's say a dash) it's about as useless as pouring gas on a fire. It's made alright for most projects, but don't put too much strain on the pour injection molded plastic or it will warp/break. I used mine twice already and found it already has stress fractures right about the middle of the handle and on the tip.

Pros: Works for light pry jobs

Cons: Poor overall quality, price is far too high for the quality.

simple and worthy

This is a no-brainer-- if you have to pull trim, add this tool to your order. Helps you remove whatever's in your way in seconds and protects your vehicle's interior from any scratches and gouges. Use it over and over as you customize.

Dash Installation Removal Tool

Brad P from La Mirada, CA on 9/24/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have installed hundreds of car stereos for friends and family with great success and with no damage to dash removal components thanks to this tool. Previously everyone used screwdrivers wrapped in tape to minimize the damage a steel blade can make when removing your car dash panels. This is no longer an issue with this tool. Great design.

Pros: Only tool needed to remove car dashes for stereo installations.

Cons: None.

Inexpensive & Useful: A great combo

Bozanimal from Boston, MA on 9/24/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It's a super-useful tool for popping retaining clips, removing dash panels, and other plastic parts without scratching up the interior of the car. Its edges are rounded slightly, so you might have to pull a bit with the tips of your fingers to give it purchase, but I've used it removing my instrument cluster, radio dash, doors, roof liner, and pretty much anywhere there's plastic in my car. A few reviews have stated it could be thinner, and while this would be nice it would probably lose some of its strength if it were any thinner. As it is I can use it to really leverage out retaining clips: Thinner and it'd bend or break.

Pros: Inexpensive, useful, doesn't scratch plastic

Cons: None

Roger T. from Rumford ,RI on 9/18/2013

Well, it lasted for a good 20 minutes before it snapped in half... VERY cheap plastic. I ended up wrapping a butter knife in clear tape and using it instead.

Pros:

Cons:

Quite soft - so be aware of what its specific is.

dt63944 from East Aurora, NY on 4/4/2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

As noted, this is a soft plastic tool that can easily break the tip if there's a lot of upward force applied to the tip. This tool is for going in straight to separate trim pieces. The good news is that a piece of very fine emory cloth or sandpaper can fashion a new tip if you've got the patience!

Pros:

Cons:

No good!

Frank from South Amboy NJ on 3/20/2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This trim tool broke almost immediantley upon use. I did not use it to pry anythinhg, I just inserted it inbetween the dash and trim. A small chip in the point was the first to go (which also vioded the thin edge of the blade) then a larger part broke off...the tool was useless...

Pros:

Cons:

Excellent tool if used correctly

This tool gets an unfair bad rap in some reviews. Any plastic tool will break if used for prying. This tool is designed to be wedged behind trim or slid along trim edges, hence its shape. Don't pry hard and it won't break. The tip may deform slightly if extreme pressure is applied to the tip, but that's all. I used this tool to remove door sills, kick panels, air vents, a head unit, a glove box, glove box trim, and to re-seat rubber door seals with no damage to any trim or seals. The panel tool is still in one piece and can be used again. Remember: Be gentle and the panel tool will not break!

Use this!

Absolutely the best tool for taking the dash apart. No scratches, no marring, no marks of any kind. I will definately ALWAYS keep one of these around!

Bought this to install a new receiver and speakers in a 2007 Nissan Frontier extra cab. It worked great to slide behind dash trim panels and door panels. The very end of it got worn down a bit but I just filed it to make it smooth and round again. This tool was a big help. It didn't scratch anything. I highly recommend it.

I was able to use this item one time. When I went to use it the second time the tip broke off. If you plan to only install one item behind something plastic that has to be wedged open then it will work for you.

This tool is excellent but pricey. It does a good job not to mar plastic dash pieces.

This plastic panel tool can brake....

Kimalee from Oregon City, OR on 2/1/2009

I've rated this as a one star, because it broke on the first try. I'm not a strong person and I was follow the direction as well. So it was a surprise when I place it in between the dashboard and the panel and applied pressure to see it snapped in two.

Cons:

Works well once

Helped out greatly in getting the dash off my explorer but cracked and is now unusable. Its worth exactly what you pay for it.

I am a professional automotive equipment installer with over 25 years of experience. I purchased this tool and use it in conjunction with my Multi Wedge Set to easily remove dashboards, knee bolsters, door panels, consoles, trim panels, etc. from every type of vehicle new and old from Audi models to Peterbilt tractors to powerboats and motorhomes. The tool performs great and is especially useful for snaking wiring under carpet and plastic panels, and window trim panels, etc. In addition, I also purchased three more to give as Christmas gifts to my installer buddies and they love the tool as well.

Not bad

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

So this is a pretty good tool, but it's not really made for strong pannels. It appears it is more useful for fixing the trip when fabric folds over it. Either way it did the job I required it for and I can still use it again, though a crack has appeard. If I was going to buy another, I would probably go with one a little stronger.

I should have bought the Multi Wedge Trim Panel Tools #6943400 instead because this held up for like 2 minutes and is now unusable. It did, however, help out substantially.

Ron from Newhall, CA on 9/5/2008

Works well, but doesn't hold up. The tool gets dinged up pretty badly after one use. But it does do what it is supposed to do.

Not So Great...

Victor from Laurel, MD on 7/30/2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Well, you get what you pay for with this item. After only one install, the edges of the tool are marred and worn. It is really not even rigid enough to fit into tight spaces in the car's trim. I can't complain too much because of the price, but I would invest in something a little more solid if you plan to use it more than once.

Pros:

Cons:

Nice Tool

KYFHO from Great Falls, MT on 3/15/2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This tool has been very useful for removing panels. It is much smaller than I thought it would be, but it gets the job done. The only drawback is that is is a little too flexible for panels that need more than average pressure to remove. For the price you can't beat it.
