There's a 5 piece set at HF, but the main one I always use the tip is already worn. I purchased a "help" brand set from autozone didn't last. I had one I acquired though a tool lot purchase that lasted a long time, my dumbass left it in a car. Looking for help on a quality brand.

Those metal tools often leave marks/indentations though when being forced in relation with other plastics. I have yet to find a quality plastic trim removal tool; until then, I just find myself getting by with the HF ones.

How much plastic trim you removing?

I mean if you work in a body shop and this tool is in your hand on a daily basis, I would look towards a Matco or another professional brand that has a lifetime warranty.

HF hand tools have a lifetime warranty...
Really? Its not the warranty they sell you..?

I bought a drill and the warranty plan.. The drill took a shit after 4 months. I brought it back and exchanged it with a new one. The said do I want to purchase a warranty. I said I already did.

They said No, that covered the old drill. if you want coverage on the new one, you need to purchase a new warranty. :wtf:

A drill isnt a hand tool. Their hand tools automatically have a lifetime warranty.

If your afraid of that, dip the end in a pool of RTV. Once it dries you can cut and manipulate the RTV and now you have a rubber coated pry bar.

I work at a dealer and do a ton of interior panel, consoles, trim, etc. removal for campaigns, repairs. Would be nice if the HF set has a warranty. I guess I'll ether have to try a snap on one or buy new HF annually if no warranty.

Metal style works for something like get out those clip that stay in the door when removing door panels, but there abrasive. I personal try to stay away from pocket screw drivers and metal trim tools as much as possible as they break or mark up plastic super easy.

Micro flat head goes far. The metal one is good for plastic rivets.

For interior I like to use a kit I got from the Canadian HF (Princess Auto) in a brand called Pro Point.


The best/longest lasting will be Snap-On but these are "consumable tools" to me.
