Includes the Viper™ Wire Removal System With the trend in automobiles moving to exposed edge glass and having small, hard to maneuver quarter glasses and sliders, we felt we needed a starter kit that included a wire removal tool to safely get in these areas and remove the glass without damaging the vehicle. That’s how we came up with our new Glass Removal Start-Up Kit. It comes with everything a new technician will need to remove auto glass and prep the area for replacement. This includes the Viper™ Wire Removal System as well as many other industry-specific tools. This kit is intended to build on a basic set of tools that most people into the auto glass in already have and make it into a set of tools for an Auto Glass Technician.
Most people who start training to become an auto glass technician already possess a small set of tools. Usually, they have a Phillips and straight screwdriver, wrenches, and hopefully a set of metric and inch size sockets. This kit is intended to build on that set of tools and make it into a set of tools for an Auto Glass Technician. We developed this kit by asking some of the most respected technicians in the country to give their feedback on what should be included in a basic technician kit. There were many variations, but the tools that are included in this kit are the ones mentioned most by those technicians.We also realize there are other items (including power tools) you might like to add to this toolkit. For this reason, you can pick any item to add at the time of purchase and deduct 10% from the cost.
However, no substitutions of the tools included in this kit are allowed.
As you gain experience as an auto glass technician you’ll want to add on to the basic set of tools you already have and also add some specialty items to your toolbox. We developed this kit by asking some of the most respected technicians in the country to give their feedback on what should be included in a master technician kit. There were many variations, but the tools that are included in this kit are the ones mentioned most by those technicians.

Remove and replace “Swing Out” friction pins. Here is a problem that every auto glass technician has faced: how do you remove the friction pin from “swing out” windows without breaking the latch? The answer is Equalizer’s pin removal pliers. The jaws have five adjustable settings that will fit any swing out window. To remove the friction pin, open the jaws wide enough for the plier push pin to engage the friction pin. When reinstalling the retainer pin, swing the plier's push pin around until it is upside down and use the depression in the plier push pin to hold the friction pin in place. Start the friction pin and then use the plier pusher pin to push the friction pin into the latch.
This pop rivet setting tool comes with five common size end caps. The nosepiece is 5-1/2" long for reaching deep inside any door. A small plastic bottle between the handles catches shanks from the pop rivet, keeping your client's car clean and preventing accidental tire damage.
