Crutchfield customer from Taylorsville, KY on 12/27/2020

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I didn't use them due to my car having an aftermarket CD player installed by a previous owner. I did keep them in my toolbox for future use though, because I've needed them before, and might need them again!

Pros: Work well if you have a factory head unit.

Cons: Can't get the installation kit without them if you don't need them.

Unique tool that helps remove factory radios. No instructions included, you need to refer to crutchfield instructions but it's kind of obvious where they go, it's the you have to work them a bit to remove the radio part. Might take a minute or so to remove it.

Pros: Does the job its supposed to.

Cons: Not real clear on how far to insert tool. Kind of play around with depth is my advice.

I'm glad/grateful that these were included for free with my head unit purchase, however they were not useful. I had to destroy the previous head unit and disassemble part of my dash to get the old unit out. I'm sure it's just a design issue with older Ford/Mazda units, but this was the most difficult stereo I've ever had to remove.

Pros: Meh.

Cons: Didn't work for me.

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.

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.

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

Use these for my Miata on my first self install. Read a few places online that people sometimes struggle using these, but I had everything out in about 3 seconds. I imagine complications are rare.

A pair of tools that made life A LOT easier

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.

Pros: Works as promised

Cons: None
