Our take on the Pro.Fit Hook Tool Set

These Pro.Fit hook tools reach behind dash bezels and panels so you can safely remove them while installing a car stereo. One hook has a 90-degree bend with a straight tip, and the other has a 180-degree round tip. Warranty: lifetime.

Good tools, made dash panel removal easy.

Real universal use tool

Bob from Hollywood FL on 8/25/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Real tool with a rugged look and very sturdy. These are a must have for any diy-er, you will be using them to pull stereo's pull small bites of trim, pull broken hoses of the fittings, grab&pull wires from/in tight spaces and the list can go on and on. If you don't have these BUY THEM NOW don't wait until you see you'll need them. For the price, buy two!

Pros: everything

Cons: doesn't do scrambled eggs and french fries

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have to admit I was a bit reticent about buying these, since I enjoy hurting my fingers and breaking my dashboards. I avoided both; perfect tool for the job. Worked simply and effectively. I am really glad I got these with my awesome Pioneer!

Pros: Small enough to get in the fine seams and strong enough to pull a dash plate. I love it.

Cons: should've gotten them sooner

Good Tool

Anthony W. from Wilmington, NC on 10/9/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Perfect tools for installing stereo equipment in cars. Also works well cleaning small grooves in plastic, install cleaning rag on plastic groove and push pick on the groove without puncturing the rag and clean.

Pros: Strong and durable

Cons: None

Comes in very handy

Cheap enough to make the job easier and I've found uses for them in other applications



Handy tools

Steve from Lewisville, NC on 7/30/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Handy in removing dashboard bezel / trim.

Pros: Strong. Light weight. Useful in accessing most areas of dash trim.

Cons: Not able to access all areas of dash trim. Use care and ensure the tip is fully engaged before tugging/pulling on tool to avoid slipping. The sharp point could easily scratch dashboard trim if it slips. Could also injure the user. They work well; just use caution.

Nice tool to have



Surprisingly useful

John from New Haven, CT on 6/6/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these as an afterthought - they were inexpensive and might just be handy in my toolbox anyway. Turned out they were critical in my head unit removal, which I found was stuck, by allowing me to hook small holes and get the purchase I needed to pull out. Glad I had them on hand. If I didn't, I would have had to pry and shimmy it and likely cause cosmetic damage.

Pros: Good quality. Useful in multiple situations.

Take that big name tool brands!!

Cummins mastertech from Florida on 9/14/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am a professional mechanic and have all snap on and Matco tools. Like always, my pick set is getting bent and broken and it normally costs more then $60 to replace them through the big name brands. I saw these as a suggestion when checking out and they are great! They are even longer then the others I normally buy!

Pros: Longer, stronger, price

Having the right tools makes the job easy, and these little puppies made installing a new head unit in my song's Camry a snap.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nifty little hook set, great for pulling wires for car stereo or other electronics.

Pros: Unique set of hooks, solid steel, good price

Cons: Would be even better if slightly longer and/or flexible.

Hook Set

AJW from Southern, IN on 1/14/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I give these 4 stars only due to the fact that the handles are plastic. Other than that slight downside they do their jobs adequately.

Pros: Work perfect as hooks and back scratchers

Cons: Plastic handles

Simple tools to make the job easy

Kay from Folsom, CA on 6/28/2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

There is nothing fancy about these hooks, but they really make the install more simple. They worked easy on my 2004 Lexus ES, and made the install of a iPod mount complete in less than 10 minutes. Well worth the price!

A must-have for the toolbox

Written by Robert Ferency-Viars, Staff Writer - Creative, on 12/14/2016 1:56:00 PM

I added these hook tools to my order as an impulse purchase the last time I bought some car speakers. I'd always wanted a set, but never bothered to get them.

As it turned out, I used them twice for that installation, to help fish wires for my new tweeters through the door. They made what would've been a pain-in-the-neck task incredibly easy. They were just the right tool for the job. And since then, I've used them a bunch of other times around the house. They're very handy and need to be added to every toolbox!
