    It works

    I didn't purchase this product. I went to Best Buy with a product already in hand to use, but the tech decided to not use what I already had and instead installed this and put it on my bill. I was not happy with that because I didn't authorize it and didn't appreciate the additional charge without any consultation. Best Buy techs at another location didn't understand why he did this, either. It's nothing special. It's a double DIN mounting bracket. It serves its purpose and fits my vehicle as it is supposed to so that I could switch from my factory radio to one that supports more advanced functions.

    I wish there was an alternative

    For newer Ford vehicles like my 07 Fusion, I had to cut so much plastic away to even make this slide into the factory opening. Then I find out NONE of the screws that come with it are the right size. They are too small and short so I had to buy longer screws. I understand these are somewhat universal but it took me 5 seconds to realize this didn't fit in my car without heavy modification. But this IS the correct radio adapter for the Fusion/Milan/MKZ

    Good luck finding the perfect dash kit - I tried three and this was the best fit. Yeah, there's a slight gap under the stereo; but, it's hardly noticeable once installed and nothing rattles or anything. Someone with more patience could probably rig it up to work a little better, but I'm overall satisfied. Instructions are pretty terrible though - consider not using the DIN frame and see if that works any better (it did for my install).

    I bought this for my truck (2005 f-150) after relising that I forgot to get one for my head unit, I was a little confused at first because you only see the single bin with the tray, but it is a complete kit for either a single din or double. Easy instalation, only 6 screws + wiring up harness

    Bought this to install a new radio into my 2006 Ford Explorer, and it worked perfectly. There were parts for double din, as well as single din installations. I used the double din, and it made my installations very easy to do

    Installed radio in 08 Ford F150, my radio looks like it came with the truck. I have a square 2 DIN factory radio, the dog ears on this mounting bracket needed to be removed to allow new radio to fit. They were easy to remove by scoring the plastic and using pliers to break off. Others may not know what too do, not covered in instructions.

    The product is very good material as far as the fit goes it looks very stock and nice however it may need a little bit of modification depending on the deck my dick opens up and pushes against the outside rim just a little bit and needed a little sanding down . Now that it's complete it looks like a stock set up very professional

    I love that this installation kit has a little compartment underneath it. I have a 2007 Ford Focus that is Standard and extra storage is practically non existent, so having that little cubbyhole is wonderful. I had Best Buy do the installation of my car stereo, and they did an excellent job.

    Matches Interior Well, Fit Not Exact

    I recently used this kit to install a double-din radio in my 2008 Taurus Limited. The kit matches the factory interior finish very well, the only complaint I have is that the piece that surrounds the bezel of my head unit needed to be modified as it was slightly too narrow. It was a quick fix and I'm still using this kit

    Bought this installation kit for my Pioneer deck and it worked like a champ, made the install very easy and it looks great. Installation kit allows you a lot of movement and play when installing your deck. Will defiantly buy again in the future if my deck requires me to have another installation kit. Great product

    I had a factory stereo on my truck...the kind of stereo that takes up 2X the space than a regular stereo which of course makes this item Necessary when you want a new stereo installed...it helps create an open pocket under the new stereo, which is good to slip in/store small items.

    Needed this part due to the difference in size between the stock and aftermarket radio. Had Geeksquad install the radio as well. The kit matches the factory trim nicely, and almost unnoticeable gaps.

    We purchased a car stereo for our daughter for Christmas and set up an appointment with the Geek Squad to have it installed. They ordered the parts we needed for the installation and it was done in an hour the day of our appointment. Very smooth process...thanks Best Buy!!

    Kit made new radio look factory

    Installers recommended this kit for replacing the factory radio with my new chosen JVC system. Beautiful kit, new radio looks like a factory job and the kit converted the remaining space, left by the much larger factory radio, into a great little storage nook. Love it!

    I had to call the support center for information on getting this to fit in my vehicle. They had me to cut the product in order for it to fit. I wasn't expecting to have to cut up the product in order for it to fit. Other than that it has worked well.

    Like the fact that the kit comes with different din sizes. Only issue I had was trying to attach the radio to the installation kit that I was using. I used the double din set up to install a kenwood touch screen. Once installed in car with the trim it looked great.

    I didn’t realize how much of a difference having a radio kit makes to put that finishing touch on your radio being installed. Although inexpensive, it doesn’t look cheap once put on. I was very happy at the end result

    We purchased a radio with Bluetooth for my son. We had it for a while and thought it would be easier to have the installation done at Best Buy. It was the best thing we did. The sound is excellent better than the Bluetooth that came with my car.

    This kit contains all necessary pieces to install an aftermarket stereo in most Ford 2004 - 2009 vehicles. I installed an Alpine in a 2006 F350. The kit instructions were easy to follow and right on. The hardware fit the radio and the dash perfectly.

    Good Radio Mounting Kit

    This is a good radio mounting kit for specific make/model vehicles. Instructions are not as clear as I expected them to be. Kit does not include any screws/hardware to mount the radio to the side rails. Otherwise, a fairly nice kit.
