S hook and extensions. tools used in the dent removal process video. 2011 Toyota Camry http://217dent.com Springfield, IL

“S” Hook and Bracket

*Similar tool used in video to provide extra leverage, to be used with the Dent tool itself.  These tools can be found at your local hardware store, however the link on the image is a similar setup.  I have added the cloth tape to protect the vehicles e-coat and finish.  Even though the finish is not visible and is covered by the interior liner, I still take extra precaution to maintain your vehicle as original. The cloth tape can be purchased on Amazon, and usually comes from overseas.  This can take up to 6 weeks to arrive.

Tesa 50126

This “50126” is a MUST, do not go with any other, it’s more expensive, but there is no comparison.  This is the tape that was used to soften the tip of the dent tool used in the dent removal video of the 2011 Toyota Camry.  Usually takes 3-6 weeks and ships from Germany.

Stainless Steel PDR Knock Down
