Removing automotive trim panels is a frustrating task at the best of times, but having trim tools handy will quickly save you from extra minutes (or hours) of cursing. Most newer cars use plastic clips to hold many interior panels in place, and a simple set of tools like this allows you to get the proper pull and leverage needed to make these clips cooperate. Sure, you can drop $30-$50 on the pricey Snap-On or Mac Tools equivalent, and there’s a chance that those tools will last a little bit longer overall, but at just under six bucks, this little set is more than adequate for your occasional bit of at-home DIY.
Those wanting something a bit more comprehensive could also opt for this more extensive 13-piece kit, which includes a wider array of shapes, widths, and angles of trim tools, as well as a pair of metal-tipped versions. When used tactfully, those metal tools are a godsend for popping stuck trim clips on door panels in particular.
