Extremely Disappointed

Written By John V Southern California, Mission Viejo, California on Sunday, August 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 Wednesday, September 03, 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.

Makes disassembling a car SO much easier

Written By Jason, Commerce, MI on Sunday, August 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.

Useful but not necessary

Written By FatSteve001, Athens, TN on Friday, April 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.

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.

Must have tool!

Written By Mike R, Athens, GA on Friday, February 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

Written By AJW, Southern, IN on Tuesday, January 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.

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.

Only tool needed to remove car dashes for stereo installations.

None.

Inexpensive & Useful: A great combo

Written By Bozanimal, Boston, MA on Tuesday, September 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

Simple, but effective

I almost passed on this tool but that would have been a big mistake. Simple,
effective, does what it needs to do without tearing or damaging interior parts.
Made the job go faster.

If your dash is anything but easy don't bother with this tool. It broke immediately upon use.

Satisfactory at best

Product does what it is designed to do, but I still had to use a flat head screwdriver along with this product. Tool is scratched after one use but still in descent working condition. I would've probably ended up scratching my panel if I hadn't bought this product.

Could have been useful...

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.

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

Written By dt63944, East Aurora, NY on Sunday, April 04, 2010

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!

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...

Excellent tool if used correctly

Written By Chris, St. Louis, MO on Tuesday, September 22, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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!

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!

Pro.Fit Trim Panel Tool

Written By Matt, Wakefield, MA on Monday, April 06, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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 plastic panel tool can brake....

Written By Kimalee, Oregon City, OR on Sunday, February 01, 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.

Pro.Fit Trim Panel Tool

Written By Charles, East Brunswick, NJ on Monday, January 19, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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

Written By Steve, Kirkland, WA on Wednesday, November 05, 2008
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.

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...

Written By Victor, Laurel, MD on Wednesday, July 30, 2008

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.

Nice Tool

Written By KYFHO, Great Falls, MT on Saturday, March 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.
