Indispensible for installations

David from EAST AURORA, NY on 4/15/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I've had mine for over ten years and glad Crutchfield still sells it; I don't know how I would have been able to route wires through kick panels, up and down through under-dash parts to keep wiring away from steering linkages and so forth, basically to get wiring exactly where I want it. Stiffer than a cable tie, and the bend that is there when you open the package and can be massaged out when necessary, although it can be frustrating at times, can work to your advantage to get the tip of the "worm" to thread through exactly the spot you want it. I'll probably get a second one soon, there isn't anything else on the market that I've seen that could work this well.

Pros: Value Usefulness

Cons:

This item works pretty much exactly as you'd expect it to. It's not inexpensive for what it is, but it's made out of a pretty sturdy material and seems like it will stand up to the test of time.

Pros: Sturdy

Cons: A bit too wide to pass through some of the tightest spots

Nice little "fish tape" for cars!

Larry Swindall from Franklin, KY on 5/21/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Worked great for me. Couldn't find anything comparable for the price. Used on 3 jobs so far, under carpeting and inside doors for wire runs. Just take your time and have some patience pushing it through and it will last a long time. I had to help guide it through the rubber "accordion" conduit in the front doors with my hands, but no big deal. It does come out of the package with a curve, but I found it plenty flexible and just rolled it up the opposite direction and placed it back in it's bag for a few hours.

Pros: No other equivalent I could find on the market for automotive use.

Cons: None for me.

Well it saved my hand, knuckles and installing time. No pulling seats too run rca, speaker and remote wires. Well worth the money!! One suggestion is too remove it from package and lay it flat on hard surface in the sun if possible. place a brick on each end overnight. Nice and straight.

Pros: Great product

Cons: No instructions but if your attempting your own install you should know how too use one.

Invaluable in installing my system

James from Fresno, CA on 12/5/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This thing was invaluable in installing my system. I knew I'd use it to fish the power wire through my firewall, but I found a number of other uses that made various tasks so much easier when running speaker wire and RCA's. The only drawback is that mind does NOT want to straighten itself out. It has a constant curve to it, which means I have to be strategic when using.

Pros:

Cons:

Definitely came in handy

Rod from GA on 8/14/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I picked this up through the suggestion of my salesman and am really glad I did. I was dreading running the 8 gauge power wire through the firewall, and thought this would make it easier. As it turned out, I didn't need it to run the power wire through the firewall on my '07 Mustang. BUT, I did find numerous uses for it in running other wires/cables throughout my Pony. I can't tell you how much this little piece of plastic helped me. Tip.....when it came, it was wrapped up pretty tight, and as others have said, it didn't want to straighten out. Fortunately I received this in the summer and it was 93 degrees outside, so I unrolled it, placed in the driveway directly in the sun, and set a gallon water jug on both ends. I found it straightened out the best by having the "curve" aimed up, and then set the water jugs on both ends. After about an hour in the hot sun, it was just about perfectly straight. Actually, it had just a slight bend left that turned out to be advantageous when running wire. All in all, definitely a good purchase for ten bucks.

Pros: Really makes the install easier

Cons: comes rolled up real tight, but fixable. See review tip.

Uncoil this device and stretch it out as soon as you receive it. If you do this, it will work just fine. Worked great for fishing the video cable from the backup camera to the head unit.

Cons: None.

Useful wiring tool

Crutchfield customer from West Palm Beach, FL on 4/21/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This was my first attempt at wiring something in my car, dual headrests, and this wire worm was great. I was able to get from the opening below the seats, to one near a seat bolt near the rear of the drivers seat, then under the center console to the passenger side seat. It was firm enough to nudge through the carpet and the curved shape helped me pull the wires up and out. On to the next project!

Pros: Firm yet flexible

Cons:

Useless for my double din install on 2006 Ford Fivehundred

Luke from Honolulu HI on 3/2/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I honestly felt like this was useless for my double din installation. I could see it being more useful if you were going through the fire wall or rewiring speakers. The rep recommended it and put it in my quote during a chat conversation. I didn't really pay for it because I had received a discount on my order.

Pros: high quality

Cons: useless when installing double din stereo.

Did the job but comes curled in a tight circle and wants to stay that way. I tried to bend and curl it in the opposite direction several times and that helped about 50%. It will feed cable through tight, straight spaces but wants to bend in that same direction. It can get frustating at times...

This works better than the bent metal coat hanger method of threading wires through a vehicle. The nylon is unlikely to scratch painted metal or plastic surfaces. This tool will last for several installations.

Pros: The right tool for a vehicle wiring job. Better than the no tool or the wire coat hanger method.

Cons: none

Good Product - Good Price

Tin Man from Brooklyn, NY on 7/5/2016

This little tool was the difference between a pro looking job and the job not getting done. I used to cut up wire hangers to run wires through the car, but the Pro Fit Worm is more flexible and easier to work with. Also, continues to be useful getting the cables in place behind the entertainment center and computer. Can't go wrong with having this in your tool box.

Pros: Useful, cost-effective

Cons: None

PMH from Pensacola, FL on 4/7/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (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

Pro.Fit Wire Worm

RC from Newcastle, me on 4/3/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (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.

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.

A fishing tape that catches the big ones

jpratch from Florida on 12/3/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (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

Mark C from Hawaii on 11/12/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (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.

Wire Hanger Does The Same Thing - Cheaper

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

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

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

Cons:

Works perfect for running wires through a dash or into doors. I was using a coat hanger before and this is much better because it's flexible.

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!!!

Tony from San Diego, CA on 3/3/2009

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (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

Ronald from Chicago, IL on 11/6/2008

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (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.

This is one of the best tools I have purchased for car audio installation. It made routing my speaker wires through the stock door jam a piece of cake. It also came in really handy for routing wire under the carpet. I wish I had bought one of these years ago. A must have for anyone who installs car audio.

Features

Overview: The ProFit DM-45-33 Wire Worm is a specialized tool to assist you in routing wires under the dash cavity, under carpeting, above headliners or through your vehicle's firewall. It is 0.385" wide x 47.875" long and made of nylon that is rigid enough to follow a line, yet flexible enough to turn corners without collapsing. It will not scratch or cut your vehicle's interior or wiring and will not harm any components that it comes in contact with. You can either thread your wires through the 0.125" x 0.25" hole at either end of Wire Worm or use electrical tape to secure your wires to the end of the Wire Worm.

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
I feel like it will simplify wire installation. There's a bunch of tight spaces behind the dashboard that I wouldn't be able to properly fish a wire through. I also plan to use this also the floorboards to run speaker wire. Unlikely that it will work for this purpose, but if it works on wire behind the dashboard, I'd be happy. [ Chris  Jul 08, 2019 ]

I have tried fishing speaker wire for vehicle installs with a standard 50-foot fish tape and it was way too stiff and the tip got caught repeatedly on the pull back.
