Essential for removing the factory radio. The tools were sturdy enough not to bend. Always a challenge to know if you're doing things right when you can't see behind the face plate, but these were designed for that job.

Worked perfect removing the radio in a 1997 F-150. Kind of expensive for a one use tool, but made removing the factory radio a cinch, I had it out in about 10 seconds. So i guess that makes it worth it.

I just couldn't get these to work. No matter what I tried, I couldn't get the radio to budge. Luckily, I had an old pair of a similar tool in my garage and I was able to get the radio out with that. I think the ends might be too small or something. The other pair I had only have a notch in one side instead of having a little nub at the end like these do.

The right tool for the job

Crutchfield customer from San Diego, CA on 10/9/2019

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

I initially used bent wire coat hangers to remove the stereo for inspection prior to making my purchase. Because the wire is not as rigid as the removal tool it is a bit cumbersome. The tool definitely works better and for a couple bucks not a deal breaker

Pros: Does what it's supposed to

Cons: None

Crutchfield response on 3/26/2019
Once we saw this review, our Tech Support specialist, Jason, reached out to help this customer. The tools are a little tricky to use. There's not really a "click" or "lock into place" like you would think. The trick to using them is to insert them as far into the radio as you can and yet still get your fingers into the loops. Then you have to find the balance between spreading apart on the tools (prying driver's side toward driver's side door and passenger's side toward passenger's side door) and pulling back on them enough to get the radio to release.

Worked as intended. Only reason for 4 stars is because they weren't parallel, and I had to apply a fair amount of strength to get them aligned in the holes. Why not just make them parallel?

Pros: Worked as intended

Great vivid picture with selectable view angle and fine tuning audio ?

Ben from Bartlett, TN on 12/8/2018

1996 Ford Crown Victoria

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

Great headunit got it on sale for 175! I originally got it for my 96 crown Vic, but shortly after traded my Hyundai for a 4 runner and decided that it needed it more haha. I love how I can just select pandora via the menu without unlocking my phone and how in depth the tuning is for audio I installed Memphis audio speakers (the cheap ones) made them sound great for only $40 speaker lol if you want a cheap headunit this one is a great choice I just can't get over how many options and features it has I've had it in for 2 weeks and I'm still finding new stuff on it. I can't wait to see what it'll do with the sub and amp I just ordered!

Pros: Very responsive equalizer (13 adjustable) You select where and what size speaker for crossover as well as if you have tweeters or not and adjustable sub output Vivid color with adjustable viewing angle The volume control keeps me intertaned for hours lol (you draw a circle on the screen to raise or lower volume) And the apple iPhone link works great haven't tested android though Best part is I haven't even started going through it yet this is all just the basic features

Cons: Didn't come with remote or back up camera be sure not to leave volume blaring before you swap from pandora to another function because when you swap back it'll be loud AF rip factory speakers lol And I haven't had any luck with the microphone yet but that may just be because I'm doing something wrong never had a head set with a mic

The factory radio was a real letdown. These clever little tools made it easy to remove the factory unit and move up to a better receiver.

Pros: Without these little hoops, you'd spend hours trying to remove the factory unit. It took about 30 seconds to pull out the old unit with these tools.

Cons: None

Can't believe how easy this was to install. Detailed instructions, fits like it was meant to and does exactly what it's supposed to. Not sure if it gets any better than that. Get online, tell them what I have (vehicle, stock audio receiver, etc.), tell them what I'm getting (new audio receiver), they work their magic and I get a package of exactly what I need to get the best install and sound from my new unit. Thank you Crutchfield.

Don from Valparaiso, IN on 7/31/2018

These are still made with the idea that your truck isn't older than dirt. I finally took off the whole dash unit and went for it from a different angle. Patience is a virtue. But I never claimed to have any virtues.

Pros: Packed well

Cons: The unit didn't want to come out. Took the whole dash unit off and went bass ackwards. Worked fine. Love Crutchfield. Great service. Just not the most useful tool for an older truck.

I have used these before to remove stereos from other vehicles and they work great. This time it was a little difficult to get one side to release. Don't know if someone else messed with the stereo before or what. After a few minutes and some patients it finally came out. You definitely need these to get factory stereos out.

They helped get a hold of the radio, but instead Of the radio pulling out, it pulled the whole dash board out. Good idea, and they helped, but still needed to pry with a flat screwdriver to get the radio out once the dash was off and radio casing was accessible

Not so simple to pull out

Lester from Mableton, GA on 7/9/2017

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

Overall they do what they are supposed to do but they are a little tricky. My 2000 Mustang factory stereo was in 2 parts After getting no where with the tuner/cassette deck I switched to the CD player. After about 20 minutes of trying the CD player came free. So now I have some practice and go back to try and pull the tuner/cassette deck. NO luck. After an hour of messing around I can only get one side to release. So I end up having to bust the face off the deck so that I can see down the side of the chassis. The other side would not flex enough to come out. Had to pry the radio over to one side to get the one anti theft tab to clear the dash frame then it finally came out. Not the tools fault but just getting the factory parts out of the dash was the bulk of the time needed for the whole swap.

Pros: You need them.

Cons: You may still have to fight to get the deck out.
