Trim sticks - removing interior trim.
 
Having pulled off my door panels more times than I probably should have for as long as I've had owned this Jeep, I finally picked up a set of these at Harbor Freight for 7 bucks.

The tool second to the left is great for getting underneath the fastener itself instead of using the panel fastener mounts for leverage. The dealer broke one of those fastener retaining mounts on my driver's door panel pulling it off without using one of these. Anyway, if you're going to be removing your interior trim panels more than once, probably best to spend 7 bucks and get a set of these. Who knows what you can use the other four tools for! :)

I used the 3rd or 4th one from the left to remove my chrome door moldings.....took like 4 minutes and NO broken clips....

Yeah those are a must have for puling the interior a apart!

Good find on the price! Harbor Freight usually has some good deals.

Ya - you gotta know when to use Harbor Freight and when to spend the a little extra $$$ somewhere else. This "5 piece set" seemed like one of those moments.

It looks like the Mopar C-4755 trim stick is flat. I couldn't find a real picture of it anyway, just a drawing of it in the TSBs. These have some straight secitons and a couple of angles. So with the right tool in this set, you can get under some of the fasteners and pop them off without putting too much pressure on the surrounding plastic.

Yeah, HF sometimes has some cheap stuff at attractive prices. But this seems like a good deal.

They make puller things apart soo much easier.
