Image uploaded by william b. I bought this tool to align my headlights and could not be happier. In Fact, I recommend Latemodel Restoration to anyone trying to restore their Mustang as I did. I will continue to stay with them for all my Mustang Needs....

Sincerely,

Will Bresch

Before this tool whenever I needed to adjust my headlights I would curse the designer of the 94-98 headlight adjusting mechanism to high Hades. With this tool its simple to adjust them although a bit pricey for a tool that you rarely use more than a few times you own the car. Still, good to have and its the only option out there unless you like trying to adjust them wtih a 4mm box wrench in a space you can barely move your hand at all.

I bought this tool a few weeks ago and for whatever reason it didn't workout. The staff sent me a replacement, so I could complete the job. The parts are great and the customer service is even better!

5 Stars   The only tool for the job
By on 3/3/2014
Had to replace the headlights in my 1998 Mustang. They incorporate one of the most ridiculous methods of adjustment ever designed by an engineer. A new tool had to be invented to do it and this 4mm ratchet is it.

It does, however, perform the task with minimal effort and great accuracy, so it is absolutely indispensable for the job, as the adjusting bolts on the headlights are in a very tight space making conventional ratchets problematic. It easily works in the available space and flawlessly executes the task.

5 Stars    LISLE HEADLIGHT Adjuster
By on 7/14/2014
I needed to adjust the headlights on my Fox body mustang after replacing them. There is no way to easily adjust the headlight alignment without this tool. The tool easily slips over the adjusting screws and the ratchet action makes the adjustment a snap. Get this tool if you are going to replaced your old fogged headlights.

1 Stars   Cheaply made
By on 4/30/2015
I have a 1990 GT & bought this headlight adjustment tool to use when I installed my new econo headlight package that I bought from LMR. I reused my stock headlight housings, but WD40'd up the threads on all of the adjustment bolts & ran them in & out with an electric screwdriver to make sure they all turned easily before using this adjustment tool. This tool still wouldn't turn the screws without slipping &/or riding up on the adjustment bolt head to where the tool would be literally stuck on the bolt head. I had to tap the tool with a screwdriver & small hammer to get it off several times. Each time I did this the ratchet assembly would instantly fall apart into pieces. I'd be able to put it back together go on to the next bolt & the same thing would happen. It seemed like the tool wasn't the right size for my 1990 headlights, it was a little too big.

5 Stars   A gold nugget
By on 4/16/2015
I tried adjusting the headlights like a fool,,UNTIL I found this little Gold Nugget. OMG what a night and day difference. I invented 2 new swear words just trying to find a socket that fits, let alone turning the ratchet. This here tool is worth its weight in gold. It makes adjustments so easy, that a 6 year old could do it and have fun at the same time. Put this one on your POWER BUY list folks!

When I bought my new lights, I didn't think about adjusting them, I figured it can't be that hard. Well without this tool it's near impossible. You need this to get in there and get on those tiny adjustment screws. Even if I only use it once it was worth it.

5 Stars   Fantastic tool !!
By on 2/16/2015
A great tool to have in the tool box, makes adjusting the lights a no brainer, as long as the adjusting ends are not "rounded off" (as mine are). So, I have to get new adjustment screws, does Late Model Restoration have these?

Anyone who's tried to adjust their headlights on 94-98 sn95 with pliers, nuts or sockets knows how frustrating it is. For the price of a Craftsmans wrench you can have the answer. This things is awesome works like a charm...

With the limited space that there is this is the best tool to adjust one's headlights. But the only downside is that there is only pretty much one use for this tool.
