Specifically Designed To Release Factory Locks On Ford Radios
What's in the Box
(2) U-Shaped Release Tools
Have you ever looked at a Factory Ford radio and wondered how to take it out? Here's the answer. This is a Specialty tool used to remove factory Ford stereo equipment. It has specially designed tabs to slide in beside the radio and release the 4 locking tabs that hold it in place. With all 4 tabs released, the head unit slides right out. It's as easy as that.
So I have a 2000 Mustang base model that had original equipment. I wanted to replace the stereo. The tool worked perfectly and removing the stereo was a breeze. Warning however if your stereo is the original like mine was which was 15 years old, the plastic become brittle and may break. The tool had nothing to do with it. This was not an issue since I was replacing the stereo and removing the CD player as well.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

What I needed

Bought a 2000 mustang and radio did not work. Had heard you could use a bent coat hanger to remove it? Saw the U tools advertised and figured that it won't be the only time I would need to do this so ordered these and got them in a couple of days. They work great.
I live in Canada which makes getting parts more difficult due to shipping and availability. I decided to try late model restoration out as they are Canada shipping friendly. The order went smoothly and the parts arrived, and were exactly as i expected. Then a problem arose with one item. Now being in Canada this usually makes this a very painful experience to deal with due to the cost of shipping products back and forth across the border. Most of the time it is just easier and cheaper to just order a new one and cut the loses. Not in this case. I sent out an email with the issue and by the time I went outside to take a picture i already had a response. A new product was shipped out immediately. I could not believe how good the customer service was. This will be where i will get what i need for now on. Anyone can sell a product but it is nice to have a company stand behind what they sell. Thanks again.
