    These are designed for head unit removal. 1) Should include a diagram so you can visualize what you're trying to do (you're doing this 'blind'). 2) These are NOT INCLUDED in the installation kit. How far in? I could get one side to release, or the other, but never both. Used these but ended up muscling the old deck out. The old deck was in for 17 years, I don't know what caused the difficulty - but this was the worst part.

    The service I received at chesterfield BB was great. The associates that helped me out were knowledgeable and courteous. They take the time to tell me about the product and gave me some good recommendations. Also they gave me choices for speakers to compliment my mercury sable. I would like to thank the store for the assistance.

    After attempting to remove my stereo using anything I could find that seemed to fit into the holes and getting very frustrated, I decided to buy this tool. It was so easy that I can't believe I wasted as much time as I did trying to save a few bucks. If you have a stereo that needs this type of tool to remove, buy the tool and save yourself the headache.

    When i was purchasing my new radio and accessories, this item was recommended. Others were tell me that any old small screw driver would work. I bought the removal tool anyway and NO! ANY OLD SMALL SCREW DRIVER WILL NOT WORK. This tool saved me from a lot of aggravation and head ache. Well worth the money.

    After watching a YouTube video on removing a factory radio, I bought this tool. At first I had difficulty, but realized that I wasn't inserting it quite far enough in (push it in until you feel the click of the release mechanism engage in the notches). After I corrected my mistake, the radio slid right out.

    Bought these to replace a set that I could not find in my toolboxfor removing stock Ford brand radios. This set is horrrible to use to remove a stock radio, lots of pressure while holding to the outside of the radio was the only way they would lock, while my old set was a simple push in and remove.

    These simple pieces of stiff wire make extracting a radio from older Ford products a breeze. Just insert one into each side of the radio face in the holes provided and pull out. Voila! The detractor: kind of expensive for what they are and the number of times you are likely to use it.

    Removal tool NECESSARY for Ford

    I did not think these were necessary!!! However, after reading about removing a Ford Radio from the '90s I decided to purchase this - I am glad I did! The best part is I still have them if I ever need to remove the HVAC control, or a radio from another Ford. Recommend highly!

    Had to replace my antennae several times and needed to remove my stereo in order to do so. I had to have it repaired by a stereo shop bcuz I did not have this tool. Hope it will be useful in the future.

    Price was steep for bent metal. It does work to disengage stereo retention tabs, but it was to flimsy to extract the stock stereo. I had to use large channel locks to remove the deck. It serves a purpose but it is expensive for what it is. $14.

    I bought this product to remove a factory stereo in a Mazda 626. While trying to remove stereo the tips broke off. I wish they were made out of a stronger material. Had to resort to a screwdriver to finish the job.

    Found this item to be extremely helpful, if not just plain necessary for the removal of the old stereo. Made the process easier to deal with as I am not the brightest bulb in the pack when it comes to electronics!

    Having never used one of these before it took a bit of work to get my old radio out. Once I figured it out (since there are no instructions) the radio came lose and I got it out.

    Honestly, you can try to remove the OEM radios with modified coathangers. But if you don't want to struggle too much then buying these is the only alternative.

    push them in, the radio pops out, can't get much easier then that! Wish they included a little rubber padding on these, for older radios, you might have to pull pretty hard

    It's a simple device that works well for what it's supposed to, but it's do overpriced for what it is and it's something you'd asassume should be bundled in the installation kit.

    Tried other ways lead to frustrated efforts. The rigidity of this vice wire was a no brainer. It took the radio out easygoing.

    bought this to remove the radio in my Motorhome without tearing the dash apart. It worked perfectly and was very easy to insert and pull the radio out.

    Just as good as any other set I've used. And just like every other set, the metal used is soft so they will bend if you're too rough on em.
