1999 Honda Civic, Perfect Fit.

Written By Rz, Florida on Thursday, December 04, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It fits perfectly in a 1999 Honda Civic, just read the instructions.

Pros: Perfect Fit

Cons: The storage slot is small, like my lighter gets stuck, I can't reach it without using a pen. I'm a thin guy, my hands are not fat. Metra could have made a larger storage area.

Fine for SAAB OG9-3

Written By Trevor, Columbus, OH on Sunday, October 05, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

10 minutes or less with a dremel and this fits as well as you should expect. Press fit is tight laterally. No complaints. Is it perfect? No. But hey, it's a 14 year old car. I'm happy.

Pros: FREE! Works with minimal effort.

Cons: Takes a little time, tools and thought to fit it.

The reason why its free

Written By GraysonJ., Holly Springs, NC on Wednesday, April 09, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I drive a '99 Saab 9-3 and even though Crutchfield insist that this in-dash receiver fits my car, it doesn't, at all. Its too tall so now I'm stuck deciding on whether I should trim this free one or go buy another one that actually fits. Also the tabs where my head unit would go are a pain to remove. I have to saw them off and file the edges down if I choose to use this kit. The storage pocket is also rather small. I can fit my wallet so it really isn't that bad. Its just my fingers can't reach the back cause my knuckles are to big to fit in, so if anything were to get stuck back there it'd be a pain to get it. Other then that its a sturdy unit. Im sure if it actually fit it'd do its job just fine.

Pros: -Storage pocket can hold wallet and phone in a more convenient place -Pretty sturdy considering its free

Cons: -Doesn't even fit my car -Tabs are a pain to get off. I have to saw them off and file the edges down.

In-dash receiver kit

Written By Obiedoer, Gardner KS on Wednesday, April 02, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works great .. but the opening below the face plate is too small ... it would be better if it was rectangle and not rounded at the corners... can get to cell phones to fit.

Pros: works

Cons: openning to small for items under the face plate.

Metra 99-7893 In-dash Receiver Kit in 1999 Honda Civic

Written By Tyler G, Fremont, Ca on Saturday, March 01, 2014

Nice, simple install. Clean look and sturdy.

Pros: Sturdy build, easy install

Cons: Storage pocket is smaller than the dash kit this replaced, lost ability to store my garage door opener beneath deck.

Nice Adapter

Written By Jon, Christiana, TN on Thursday, February 20, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The tabs can be laborious to remove. Be sure you have a sharper box cutter than I did. On the plus side, if you need those tabs, they seem to be pretty sturdy. This kit fit my 99 Civic very well and looks snug once installed. Everything feels sturdy and secure so far. The pocket seems like it could be bigger given the space it has, but it does feel thickly-walled and sturdy.

Pros: Good and sturdy fit in 99 Civic, nice enough looking.

Cons: Tabs are a bit laborious to remove; the pocket seems like it could be bigger.

Watch the tabs

Written By MSN, Leawood, KS on Wednesday, January 15, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It works like it should, but the tab removal process is a little confusing if you don't pay attention, which I didn't. Make sure you remove the correct tabs so you don't have to stuff an old sock (or 3) under the dash to keep it in place. Also, the slot at the bottom is so deep that anything small you put in there will have to be fished out of there with a stick since hands can't fit.

Needed significant modification in a Saab 9-3

Written By Skip M, Chicago on Monday, December 30, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is not a direct fit for the double-DIN hole in a stock Saab 9-3 (2002). Needed significant attention from a belt sander. Free and worth what I paid.

Pros: Came free with the receiver. Adds a little cubby instead of just a blank panel.

Cons: Didn't fit! Cheapy hard plastic. Not very good looking but I made it work.

Does not fit Saabs

Written By Lee, Alexandria, VA on Saturday, November 23, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Despite Crutchfield's claim, this does not fit Saab cars, and Metra does not claim it fits Saab cars. After quite a bit if time with a Dremel, I was finally able to make it fit , but there is still no way to secure it in the space (other than a super tight fit). It does not support the radio bracket adequately, and I had to add spacers in the back to keep the radio from tilting. The storage space is unnecessarily small and needlessly tapers toward the back. Had I realized up front it didn't fit my car, I would have looked for an alternative.

Pros: It was free.

Cons: Did not fit my Saab. Storage space could have been bigger.

Will it really fit?

Written By WillP, Omaha, NE on Monday, October 21, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This product looks nice enough out of the box, until I had the realization that this wasn't designed to fit my car and that it is only close to the same dimensions. I drive a '99 Saab 9-3 and had to double check my order when looking at this package. I had to trim off approximately 1/2" from the top side and am not very happy with the end appearance but it had to be altered in order to fit. I would have liked knowing beforehand that this wouldn't fit so that I could've shopped around to find a better fitting option.

Pros: The storage pocket is a nice size.

Cons: Did not fit and Did not know beforehand

Saab 9-3 Alpine radio install

Written By Jerry, wyckoff, NJ on Sunday, October 13, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

As it is not an exact fit product, there is some necessary skill in installing this bracket for the radio. Just being informed when you buy it would have been nice. In the end it is not that difficult to do, just have to spend some time to trim down the unit about 5/16" carefully and evenly. if you have a trim plate for the Alpine radio and put the sleeve in and the radio, before you try to install the unit, put the trim on the radio and match the amount you cut off the plate to match the top of the radio trim, provided you put the radio on the top of the adaptor plate. If you cut it down exactly to the trim plate it will fit reasonably snug as well.

Pros: Looks fine when all done as described.

Cons: Not if you are not handy with a hacksaw and files. I used the Hacksaw for the first cut then I used a table grinder to get it closer then the file to bring it exactly where it need to be.

Good Receiver Kit

Written By Bob M., Lewes, DE. on Monday, September 30, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to use once modified to fit new/replacement radio. Needed to cut out old style radio face control knob holes.

Pros: Radio mounts easily into receiver. Snaps in dash easily.

Cons: Will need modification to fit all receivers that do not have the old style radio control knob stems.

Not very good

Written By TerryA, Dublin OH on Friday, September 27, 2013

I purchased a new head unit, speakers, and various installation parts from Crutchfield. I was very pleased the whole purcase experience except this piece. I had to remove tabs and cut out parts in order to use it with my head unit. A less generic kit would been much better: I particularly had trouble removing the supports for dual-spindle head units without damaging the rest of the (somewhat flimsy) kit.

Pros: It worked

Cons: Difficult to customize, a bit flimsy

great!

Written By Anonymous, Rapid City, SD on Sunday, September 22, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fits awesome, just don't like that the pocket is super small. I have tiny hands and can barely grab things that fall to the back.

Metra 99-7893 Dash Kit

Written By APC, California on Saturday, August 10, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I expected it to fit right into the space after removing my factory radio...it did not. There was quite a bit of cutting and filing to make it happen. The final outcome was good though. You just need lots of patience to get there.

Pros: Price was low enough to warrant purchase.

Cons: Wish my Crutchfield advisor had mentioned that it would need modification to fit my car. Imagine my surprise when I opened the shipping package to see Honda written all over the product material.

Metra In Dash Receiver Kit

Written By Just Listening, Bristol, TN on Saturday, July 27, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Removed the factory stereo from my 2000 Honda Civic and installed a Sony CDX-GT710HD with this receiver kit. Looks good and fits perfectly. The kit provided an open storage slot (phone, ipod, etc.) that I didn't have before. Highly recommend.

Pros: Perfect fit

Cons: None

Disappointing In Dash receiver Kit

Written By Macko, Chesapeake VA on Thursday, May 23, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have never been disappointed with an order from Crutchfield until I received this in dash kit that I bought for my daughter as part of her Christmas Present. The radio, wiring harness, speakers, and the installation instructions were top rate, but this piece of plastic leaves a lot to be desired. Ok, it did what it was supposed to do. The radio fit the in the kit, and the kit fit the car, It works and was easy to install. However once the installation is complete you have to live with the appearance and uselessness of the final product. The size of the opening of the little compartment is miniature and the textured finish is cheesy and cheap looking. Granted this is installed in a 1999 Honda CRV, not a Lexus or Mercedes ... , and my daughter has not complained a bit, but as you can see in the picture, there is plenty of room to expand the oval opening to a more useful, taller wider and deeper squared-off-corner compartment with a much nicer finish for a better appearance.

Pros: Functional, nice fit, easy to use,

Cons: Cheap appearance of the textured plastic and small useless

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I can't figure out why everyone wants to hate on the pocket underneath I guess they want the crutchfield fairy to magically make more space in the dash where the stock stereo was the pocket is as big as it can be. I think the pocket is perfect for your phone and wallet because it doesn't slide around. It's easy to install and looks like it came with the car

Pros: Easy install Fits well Loveeee the pocket Looks great

Cons: There's no such thing as a crutchfield fairy

I only gave this product 4 stars because of the bin under the radio is about half the size of the OE bin i use this bin for alot of things now i don't have the space for some of my things. That is really the only down side o this kit. the fit and finish is excellent looks almost like and OE install.

Pros: Ease of use and fit and finish.

Cons: Bin is half the size of the OE

Written By KenE, Ohio on Thursday, July 26, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is my 3rd Crutchfield installation in a Honda CRV and the first time I had to trim any plastic off the installation kit. I was kind of bummed about that but the trimmed-out edges are not visible once you install the receiver trim ring. The installation of a JVC receiver fit perfectly and was snug and secure. The install went exactly according to instructions.

Pros: Quick and easy install Good instructions Good fit and finish

Cons: This is a petty gripe but I liked the old Honda dash kits I got from Crutchfield better than this one.

Fits well, but could be nicer.

Written By DaveM, California on Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The receiver kit fit perfectly, however the cubbie is too small for most anything and the plastic is cheap. Even with the same plastic a resized cubbie would reduce the amount of plastic showing. Used in a 2000 Civic EX coupe. Given the original radio used screws to secure the radio from behind, this kit could also use those mounting holes for a more stable fit.

Pros: Fits perfectly, it was free and easy to install.

Cons: Could be a more asthetic design.

At least it was free

Written By paste, Siloam Springs AR on Thursday, July 05, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This turned out to be useless for a 2004 Honda Odyssey. The clips were not sized right to engage the dash and just would not clip in at all. The original stereo has little steel angle clips fastened to it that attach to the dash interior with 4 bolts, and I figured out that I could attach those clips to the new radio, and attach the old storage compartment below it attached to the new radio just like the stock radio. Even if this face plate did fit the vehicle properly, the DIN sleeve attachment to the faceplate was hokey, and the radio would have been rattling around like crazy.

Pros: I didn't pay anything for it.

Cons: Unattachable to vehicle, crummy attachment to radio. One more hunk of plastic to hit the landfill or recycling center.

Just OK

Written By Anonymous, McDonough,Ga. on Friday, June 29, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Received this kit free with my stereo purchase so I wont complain too much. The universal fit is something I expected,but I didnt realize that you would have to "cut" tabs off of the main piece. Ive dealt with other kits in the past that were easier to use and seemed of better quality. Also that stupid useless pocket! Who in their right mind though that it would be a good idea to make the pocket that size!!!!!! Utterly ridiculous. But it was free and it fits so I give it 3 stars

Pros: Free with my purchase Fit

Cons: Quality storage pocket

Written By Peter J, Anchorage, AK on Thursday, May 17, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This receiver kit was free with my car radio purchase. It mounted and fills the space properly, but could be molded better. A smooth finish (rather than the rough surface it has) would fit in with my, and most dashboards better. And I don't understand why it's shelf is so small. I'll get used to it.

Pros: Works.

Cons: Be careful, as the plastic seems brittle.

This came free with my purchase. I soon found out why. It fit was ok, it never felt like it was securely into my car. My main concern was that nothing was holding it to the car. No screws or anything... Any punk kid with a screwdriver couldve ripped it out in less than a minute. I bought a Metra Kit and it is now securely installed into my car. It would take much more time and effort to steal.

Pocket too small and too much work

Written By KevinO, Indianapolis on Wednesday, August 10, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The pocket was too small, and when I thought I would use it anyway I decided not to go through with all the work required to cut out the tabs at the top. The directions say to use a utility knife, but it seemed that would take forever. For my '03 Honda Odyssey I ended buying the Scosche Honda/Nissan In-Dash Install Kit UI3050, and to get it installed with the pocket and the original mounting bracket I had to use the pocket brackets that said they were for Nissans.

Adequate for the receiver installation in a 2000 Honda Odyssey, but the pocket height is so short and the pocket so deep I cannot retrieve items like glasses or a pen that are at the back. Need to fix this loss of capacity and utility for owers with a bigger pocket. Previous Honda kit in my 1996 Accord didn't sacrifice pocket capacity as much as this kit does.

I got this for free when I purchased CD player for my Honda Civic 2000 sedan.
This allows you to install the new system as it's designed, I mean that you can
easily slide out the player to reach the rear of the unit. The downside is that
this has much smaller pocket than the original square pocket (deeper, though). I
chose not to use this to keep the original square pocket. I need a good space to
keep small things including some CDs. I don't have easy access to the rear of
the CD player, but I still think it's okay for me.

was too narrow but yet very deep, and it makes it very hard to reach small
things that lay flat on the back.

Absolute MUST for Honda CR-V install

Written By Joe, Tampa,FL on Sunday, February 20, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I called Crutcfield after obtaining my stereo, BUT before install. While I had
their Wiring Harnes I wanted to avoid added expense of this face plate. Their advisor
convinced me differently, explaining I would have open spaces around my
new receiver, which I surlely did not want. I bought and used the plate and must say it
worked and looks great. Thank you again Crutchfield! Note this plate comes free if you
buy receiver from them!

Receiver kit fits well

Written By SteveP, Atlanta on Thursday, February 17, 2011

Fits perfectly, no issues. The only downside is that the pocket beneath the receiver is
deep and narrow making it difficult to retrieve things that are at the back of the pocket.

Terrible pocket/storage with this kit

Written By Jim, Goldsboro, NC on Tuesday, December 21, 2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

As others have said here the pocket/storage size of this kit is two narrow and deep
to be usable. The insert fits snugly enough and would be great but for this. Hard to
understand why a company as good as Crutchfield appears to be would sale this
as their kit. The radio I purchased is great but I miss my previous very usable
storage space. This is a sacrifice the customer should not have to make.

I broke off the wrong clips at the bottom of mine so it doesn't always stay snugly
in place. That was my fault but just adds to my frustration with this kit.

Honda radio mounting kit used for Saab

Written By Brian, Massachusetts on Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Ordered a Pioneer DEH6200 from the outlet. Great unit, great price, very happy. The free mounting kit for my 2002 Saab 9-3 convertible is worthless however. Kudos to Crutchfield for the wiring harness that worked flawlessly. I would have been happy if they simply told me the supplied mounting kit was going to be useless regardless of the amount of trimming required.

A good fix and works fine. I wish it had more support and I put some folded foam under
the "pocket" and the frame of the car for extra security.

Also, the little storage compartment is about 1/3 the size of the factory tray. I can no longer
store everything I did before. The radio fit works as designed, though.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Overall nice product with decent plastic quality. I like the fact that it is one
piece as opposed to 2. The original Honda radio piece was much higher quality.
To install my JVC radio there had o be some modification/ cutting of plastic-
but not too bad. The pocket should also not be as deep since it is harder to
reach small items. Would also have liked the pocket to be rectangular instead of
oval.

Worthless

Written By Novice_in_Indy, Indianapolis, IN on Wednesday, August 25, 2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The only thing this dash kit has going for it is how easy it was to install. Unfortunately, that is also it's greatest weakness! It will pull out with the slightest of tugs. Great news for anyone looking to steal your stereo. And the pocket is absolutely worthless since my hand won't fit inside of it to pull out anything I've placed in it. Do yourself a favor and buy a real dash kit!

Ugly and Useless

Written By kirsch92, WA on Wednesday, August 11, 2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

As many other reviewers have mentioned, the pocket it too small to be of use. Nor will using it result in a solid mount. But hey it was free.
I mounted a Sony single DIN unit in a 2004 Honda Odyssey without using it. I was able to use the factory mounts and the OEM pocket instead. A very minimal gap is barely visible above and below, but it looks WAY better than this.

Not what I wanted, but it was as described

Written By David, Eldersburg, MD on Tuesday, August 03, 2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought a new receiver with rear mounted USB and bluetooth microphone to replace factory installed stereo and in dash 6 CD changer for 03 Honda Odyssey. I wanted some place for the USB and mic cables to come out on the dash and something to fill the space in console where one unit was replacing two.

This piece of thin plastic was not good, but after modification it worked "ok." I was supposed to mount the radio in "DIN" style sheet metal sleeve supported by this plastic frame (no other attachment to dash!). That was totally unacceptable as plastic faceplate clips failed to hold when test fit per instructions. I used factory brackets (after drilling to match holes on new stereo) for SOLID mount. Then cut away clips that did not mate console properly, removed shaft mount plates to fit over stereo. I drilled 1/2 inch hole in pocket to allow USB and mic wires into pocket (which is too small for anything else as others say ). I placed hard rubber gasket ring from new stereo to hold this piece of plastic in console. This piece does match console & stereo as I mounted it (with factory mounts screwed to stereo and dash), but it would NEVER have worked as described in instruction manual. Clips did not hold tight into console or dash opening and stereo would have flopped around w/ only DIN pocket holding it. Any bump would have cracked the faceplate. If I hadn't gotten it free, I would have returned the mounting kit as not worth the price.

Functional but poor quality

Written By joking777, Nokesville, VA on Wednesday, July 28, 2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

When installed in my '01 Odyssey it had to be installed upside down (pocket on top) or it wouldn't clip in correctly. As others have mentioned the pocket is so small, but deep, that you can't get small things out of the back of it. Also, the edge of the pocket had sharp pieces of plastic that I had to shave off. Overall it works if you aren't picky, but you get what you pay for.

Also there was no way to secure the receiver to this unit.

Saab Owners Beware!

Written By JimmyJam, Denver, CO on Monday, February 01, 2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wish I had read through the reviews before I purchased this; because as someone had said before, it doesn't fit in a Saab as it is advertised to do. As I got everything ready to install, I removed the factory stereo and started to install this kit. I quickly realized there was no way it was going to ft into the dash. Thinking it was the wrong kit, I called Crutchfield Tech Support. The technician verified the make and model of my car and proceeded to tell me that the kit sent is the right kit and their installation notes stated that 3/16" needs to be shaved off of the top of the kit for it to fit in the Saab 9-3. I replied, "So, you don't actually have a kit that fits a Saab 9-3." He replied that this is all they had. I'm sure like the many of you, you don't work in a garage and have access to a lot of tools, so it took me about a week of asking people to find someone with a band saw that could help me mill down the top of the kit so it would fit in the car. This of course, takes off the clips that hold it into the dash as well. Luckily it fits very tightly and with a little finagling, I was able to get it to stay in place. Also, like the other users, I agree that the pocket could be bigger, though it does hold an iPod/iPhone nicely. However, if it were larger, it would better support the head unit, if you opt to mount it above the pocket (as I did). I found some hard foam padding to put in between them to add stability to the unit.

Fits fine, but a bit cheap looking. Bottom tray is completely useless. Unlike the original, the tray on this kit is so small that you can't get your hand into it to get stuff out.

This fits our Honda CR-V just great. Installed very quickly, seems to hold well. I read many of these reviews that said it is cheap and not strong enough. I'm not sure what was expected from this unit but it seems just fine to me. It fit the first time without any hassle, the deck seems to be very solid (we have lots of gravel roads in Montana) and the pocket fits an iPod just perfect. I drilled a hole in the back of the pocket to feed the USB cable of the deck through and so now the iPod plugs in easily and has a spot to sit nicely. Best part, it was included with the purchase of the deck!

2000 Civic In Dash Kit

Written By William, Red Sox Nation, Hanover MA on Saturday, May 02, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This kit for Hondas is pretty straightforward. Though the Civic install may be a little more involved than most (the heater/AC controls are removed & reinstalled), just take your time and follow the directions. The finished install won't be mistaken as OEM but it looks and fits good, as does the radio. The lower storage space is retained as well.

Total time from start to finish: 2 hours, give or take.

Written By Matt, Shepherdstown WV on Friday, April 17, 2009

The install kit for my 2000 Honda Civic EX is cheap and very ugly. It just snaps into the plastic bezel of your dash, thats it... Thats all that holds your new head unit in! The little pocket that is molded into it is 100% useless. Im looking for another kit to see if I can get something that looks more like stock or at least has a usable storage pocket. Coming from Crutchfield I never expected this level of quality....

A tip on installation

Written By John, Middleton, WI on Thursday, April 02, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Everything went together well, except for the order in which the radio is inserted into dash. Before sliding radio /housing into dash, connect all plugs. The instructions had you install the radio then hook up plugs, which would be impossible to reach. Radio should also be firmly attached to adapter before insertion as well. Bending prongs to hold the radio in bracket would be impossible if done after radio was in dash.

Does not fit in Saab 9-3

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This unit does not fit in my 99 Saab 9-3. It is about 1/10 inch too wide and too tall to fit in the dash opening. I was able to trim the outer edges using a dremel tool to get the kit to fit. That being said, it is not very secure since it does not fasten with screws and the supplied plastic tabs did not secure the unit.

Flimsy, cheap-looking, and disappointing

Written By Keith, Chicago suburbs on Saturday, January 31, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This mounting pales in comparison to the sturdy way the OEM radio was mounted in our daughter's 2001 Honda CRV. To begin, the plastic is very thin, and the DIN frame flexes with respect to the pocket with the radio installed. I had to cement a wood spacer in the gap to keep the radio from bouncing. Additionally, I have very little confidence in the flimsy plastic prongs that hold the frame in the dash opening. As others have pointed out, including our daughter, the pocket is pretty useless because of its narrow opening and extreme depth. I know it's "free", but I would have preferred to pay a few dollars more for a mounting kit that looks more professional and is attached rigidly to the OEM brackets with screws.

So-So

Written By cabexbx, Pittsburgh, PA on Saturday, January 24, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

As others have said, this doesn't really lock or snap into place, it's just held in place by the trim. I was a little surprised that it didn't lock or bolt into place. To be honest I didn't read the other reviews prior to purchasing this. The pocket is a bit smaller than the stock pocket on our Odyssey, but it's not a huge deal.

It does fit nicely and we haven't had any troubles with it getting out of place. Would I buy it again? Maybe, maybe not. I'd think about it.

This unit does not match the interior dash and does not fit fill.
The stock unit came with solid brackets held by 4 screws. This one is kind of hanging to the dash trim.

I wish they but more thought in designing this since it is supposed to fit a standard 'Double din' opening.

The kit covers the gaps around the receiver and that's all it's good for. It doesn't snap in place, more like held in place by the car trim.

The little slot can't fit anything other than a few CDs. The edges are rough - ou can't fit your hand inside it if you put small items that fall to the back and if you try to get it out, you scrape your hand really bad.

Whoever designed the kit never considering form and function. At least they could made the slot a little bigger. Oh well, it's free but I'd pay a little more for something you can use.

I have dealt with Crutchfield for many years now, buying several different products and have never been let down. Their customer service would be hard to be by anyone. The knowledge and guidance offered by the professional technical assistance staff is outstanding.

I will continue to purchase products from Crutchfield because I know they will always be there when I need assistance. This product was installed without a hitch and looks great in my civic.

I helped my brother install his Alpine deck and this kit was included. I wish the retaining tabs were a bit bigger. Not sure how well they will stay in place over time. We just put it in 2 days ago, so it is too soon to tell. I do have to say though that it was really easy to install.

The rim of the extra shelf's edges were really rough in some places, but i smoothed it down with my dremel and it was fine after that.

I found that the shelf's opening was too narrow for my fingers to reach the back. I suppose it is good for something big like 1 or 2 CD cases , but if you drop something in the back, it will be hard to get it out.

Overall, it was free with the purchase of the deck, so I can't really complain.
