When it comes to interior work, the small things often times wind up being the biggest pain in the ass. When removing all the panels’ clips and handles form the interior of your ride the only real problem is that — in most cases, at least — everything must go back on.  So while just ripping the thing off may be satisfying now, you’ll kick yourself for it later.  A handle/crank remover tool can help ease your rage — during disassembly and reassembly.

It looks like bent up metal stick you’d find in a scrap pile around the shop, but the funky tabs and shapes save you some hassle and cash by snapping the handles and cranks off with all their pieces in tact.  Just slide the tabs under your handle or crank clips and pry ’em off with a rocking motion.  The tool will support the handle in the right places and protect it.

It’s the best $5 you’ll spend on any interior project.

    It’s amazing how much those little plastic trim fasteners can cost when you break them, and deeply satisfying to slip the right tool under one of those irritating little clips and pop it right off.

    A similar tool is required for my car’s stereo, and I learned the hard way that the tool is REQUIRED. After popping out panels and disassembling a car door for speaker installation, I have to say that this tool is in the top ten for car interior work–it wasn’t expensive, I won’t use it a lot, but oh the headaches it will prevent.

    I would love to pick one of these up locally it is really too bad the Wilmar site doesn’t include any way to look up vendors for its products.
