MasterPry LED pry tools

If you've ever tried to replace/upgrade the original equipment radio in your car or truck, these simple pry tools are essential to avoid damaging fragile plastic trim on the dash. In my case, the radio in my VW completely died, and I had to replace it with an aftermarket unit. I had an old butter knife that did a fairly good job of prying the trim off, however because it was metal, I ended up scratching the surface.

When I had to remove the radio a second time to install a Sirius/XM radio addition, I chose to use a General Technician Equipment (GTE) MasterPry LED tool set. The edge on one of the tools was perfect for separating the trim panel around my radio without marring the surface. The plastic tool slid easily but had a good grip, and I really appreciated the built-in LED light. The second tool in the set is a Fork Tip tool that's great for popping off door panels and headliners without damaging the attachment posts.

The MasterPry LED tool set is $44.95 at GTE's website. If you are even just an occaisional automotive DIYer, I heartily recommend these tools.
