Overview

Our take on the Pro.Fit Wire Worm

Pro.Fit's "Wire Worm" tool helps you route your wires during installation. Just tape your wire to it, then fish it under your dash or carpeting, or push it through holes or behind panels in order to pull the wire through to the desired destination. The 48-inch, rigid nylon Wire Worm stays straight, yet it's flexible enough to handle corners. And it won't scratch your vehicle's interior or existing wiring.

Pretty strait forward item,, If you have to run wires behind the dash, up the windows panels--or in my case, run an emergency brake wire to the e brake this simple tool is a must have.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Comes tightly coiled and in order to make it useable I had to straighten it by recoiling it in the other direction and letting it sit for several days. It still had a small curve but I found that useful for hugging panels while feeding it through.

Pros: Good length Easy to use

Cons: Comes tightly coiled Seems a little pricey for what you get

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The worm was an "after thought" order after i fully reviewed what was going to be involved in running new speaker wire for my component speakers in both the doors and the dash. This works infinitely better than any of the makeshift wire snakes i have made in the past.

Pros: Nylon doesn't cause any issues associated with poking wire snakes into the dash or the doors. This also worked great for snaking through trim panels and carpeting.

Cons: Because i ordered it seperately from the car stereo and speakers I couldn't get the promo price. Not a big deal because the full price and the frustration level i would have reached without it were easily ofset! The worm comes coiled up and it is impossible to straighten out, not a deal breaker.

Buy this!

This works well and it is a must have if you are fishing wires through door jambs to re-wire speakers for a 4 channel amp

Pros: This and some electrical tape will help you pull the wires.

This is a fantastic tool. I couldn't have done the speaker wires in the doors of my truck without great destruction and a sloppy install without this tool.

Pros: Great for body to door wires through a boot

Cons:

Not helpful

Written by: ArwinR from Indiana on January 18, 2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I would not recommend this tool. It comes coiled up and it remembers the shape making it difficult to fish through the car panels. I did manage to use it to fish wire through a short open distance behind the glove box, but that was all it was good for.

Pros: If the space is just right this tool will help

Cons: Maintains coiled shape making it difficult to use.

Great little tool

Written by: afhvengeance from Ohio on November 4, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great little tool for running wires behind panels.

Pros: Rigid enough to push past obstacles, flexible enough to get around large objects and corners.

Cons: Storing it when you're done is cumbersome.

Great Product

Written by: Raymond from Montana on March 25, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

When I first took this out of the package, I thought it was going to be hard to use because it stays curled up. That actually makes it easier to use. Once I learned how to use it, it made my work a lot easier. Great product.

Pros: Well made, Easy to Use, worth the price

Cons: none

Installation nightmare

Written by: MrBam from texas on February 18, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This simple tool was a lifesaver. Person who had truck before me butchered the wiring to the point I did a clean new install with all new wires. This thing got through the door boots, through the dash, into the headliner (for my tweeters). I love this thing

This tool was very helpful when I was running the power cable from the battery to the inside of the vehicle.

Pros: Helpful

Cons: It always wants to be in a circular shape and most of the time I needed it to be straight.

A fishing tape that catches the big ones

Written by: jpratch from Florida on December 3, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This beats a metal fishing tape hands down. Being plastic, it is unlikely to damage any wires or other components in dark places while you are pushing it through. It is flexible enough to bend through reasonable accesses yet rigid enough to push wires when pulling seems impractical. The hole in the center of the tape makes pulling or pushing wires mush easier and reduces snagging. At four feet in length, it is adequate for most automotive cable pulling activities.

Pros: Just flexible enough. Plastic so almost no chance of an accidental short while fishing wire.

Cons: None in my mind

So-so

Written by: Mark C from Hawaii on November 12, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It's a pricey piece of plastic. It did come through in a few applications of my install but was still difficult. The hole notches at the ends were useful to run a bit of wiring through to secure it in place and run in tight spots. It's a bit wide for my uses and was a little too stiff for the areas I needed.

Pros: Works decently for its purpose Hole notches at the ends to secure wiring for running in tight areas Sturdy

Cons: A little too wide (at least for my needs) Too stiff for tighter bends.

Not really necessary. A coat hanger or old piece of wire could do the same thing. I had to cut it down some. I found it to be a little too wide.

Pros: None

Cons: A little too wide.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Wire Worm tool worked perfectly. I would suggest you open the package, and let it "straighten out" overnight from the coiled up shape it is shipped in. But the tool did the trick. threaded my microphone wire through the dashboard easily. Only two stars because I paid this much for a $1 piece of plastic.

Pros: Works as advertised.

Cons: Expensive for what it is.

Unfortunately Did Not Help

Written by: Rhfactor from Tucson, Az. on May 1, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Unfortunately the Worm did not help in the application I was trying to use it for (not flexible enough). It may be helpful in the future for install under carpeting, etc. I was trying to run speaker wire from top dash area to side to get to door speakers, it was such a cramped area the Worm just wouldn't work. Had to get someone will very small hands to do the job.

Pros: Hopefully will be helpful for future installs.

Cons: Just about everything in the application I was looking for.

Wire Hanger Does The Same Thing - Cheaper

Written by: Anonymous from Sumter, SC on May 26, 2012

This does nothing a cheap wire hanger wont do. I found it less sturdy, too, for those long reach scenarios that require a bit of pressing to push through. All in all, I got back out my metal hanger, unwound it, folded the end to make a U shape about 6 inches long, put my wires inside the U, taped it securely at top and end, then pushed on.

Pros: None

Cons: Didnt handle the job

I bought this because I wasn't sure if I was in need of it or not and thought it couldn't hurt as it wasn't very expensive. When I got it and opened it, I was really kind of leary and I was ready to just write it off but man, did this help in my project and it is one sturdy little tool. I was able to pull cables through my entire truck with no problems and this tool worked everywhere.

Pros: sturdy, small and will fit anywhere

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This Wire Worm tool is FANTASTIC. Yes, you could use a wire hanger or a giant zip-tie, but the wire worm is very long, completely smooth, and will not scratch the interior or snag while running it under carpet/door sills/seats, etc. The only complaints I have are the price (less than $10 would have been great) and the fact that the tool needs to be straightened for a few hours (or overnight) before use. I just stretched it out straight and put a heavy box on it overnight. The next morning, it was perfectly flat.

Best car audio installation tool you could ever purchase!!!

Written by: Tony from San Diego, CA on March 3, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I agree with Ronald from Chicago, as well as everyone else that rated this product so high. This is by far the best car audio installation tool you could ever buy! I also purchased a couple of the door and panel trim removal tools, which don't get me wrong, came in very handy. However, this tiny (but very sturdy) tool saved me countless installation hours, kept me from breaking door and floor trim, and kept me from ripping up any of my interior carpet. This tool makes installation and routing of cables very, very easy and simplistic. Believe me and all the others that rated this product....This will be the best purchase you could ever make in regards to audio installation products. It made my installation experience so much easier and enjoyable!!!

Saves Tons of Time and Frustration - Great Tool

Written by: Ronald from Chicago, IL on November 6, 2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is the best car audio installation tool that I have ever purchased. Incredibly simple, it's just a thin (but sturdy) curved piece of plastic. Don't let it's simplicity fool you, however, it makes routing power cables, interconnects and speaker wires so much easier. I can't tell you how much time, frustration, busted knuckles and profanity this tool has helped me save. It's probably the best money I've ever spent on car audio tools or accessories. You'll have your new system up and running so much faster, as well as being in a much happier mood, if you use this inexpensive tool to complete your install.
