Video Transcript for Powerbuilt Trim Pad Remover Demonstration

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Powerbuilt Trim Panel Remover Tool. This is where it comes in handy for all types of fasteners, whether they're plastic or metal. Part number on it is ALL648544. Now, let's take a quick look since we're here in the hatch area. There are few different uses or a few different areas where our Powerbuilt trim remover tool will really come in handy. To start our push pin fasteners here, we'll be able to use the almost similar to a screwdriver edge there.

To pull out the center core, then we can go right in behind it with the panel tool and pull that right out. Another place where it really works out well is being able to get that along the underside of our trim panels themselves, and then you can see all we have to do is kind of tip up on it slightly. Then, we can hear our fasteners popping out of place. We can continue that all the way across to free up that rear panel. Another great aspect. Again, the screwdriver kind of style here, we'll be able to tip that right in there.

Pop off our panel giving us access into the bolts below, if we wanted to remove that or something of that nature. That's going to complete today's look at the Powerbuilt Trim Panel Remover Tool, part number ALL648544. .

After watching the etrailer video I installed the hitch in about 2 hours. The rear panel popped out and back on easily. I removed the lower bumper panel after removing the main panel, installed the hitch, reinstalled the main bumper panel, cut the subpanel around the hitch and reinstalled it last. I also bought the
Trim Pad Remover Tool to take out the securing clips and it was worth the $10.00. You guys have great videos.


Super finger saver! not just for installing a new hitch but this tool now stays in my car so I can quickly pop the plastic plate off the bumper to use my hide away hitch!


The video made installation simple!! I almost bought a hitch from uhaul with installation would of cost me $[XX] total. I just saved around $[XX] and learned the process. I’m not a professional and did it myself in about an hour. Freakin love the hitch and etrailer’s highly competitive pricing and very informative video!


We used this to remove the trim pads on our Subaru Crosstrek so we could install the wiring harness we also purchased. The tool made is easy peasy.


This tool made the job of removing the trim pins MUCH easier and without breaking them!


came as promised, in excellent condition and went on without issue after I watched the video that was available on the etrailer website. Very helpful and I would purchase another hitch here again!


The sipping box had been torn open and I was afraid I would be missing things. It looked as if it had been done on purpose. The whole top had been ripped free of the staples, like you would do to open it. But the small box was still inside with the rest of the order. The hitch is very nicely made.


This item was not included in the original shipment as indicated on the original invoice. However, I was able to use a series of screwdrivers as a substitute to get the job done. I advised customer service that the item was not shipped and requested a credit/refund because I got the job done without it. Instead of the requested refund they shipped the not longer needed tool. Not happy.

I am very sorry for the mistake in shipping and error in communication. I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.


To wire my trailer hitch for lights, I had to pull paneling off my brand new car. (!!!) This tool helped me do it without breaking a single fastener. The operation was a success.


Clever tool which made the job much easier. Should have bought one of these years ago.


A very handy tool! Especially helpful when I was removing the push screws from my bumper fascia.


Ultimately the product is excellent I am completely satisfied with the end result. I included a few installation tips for those of you who plan to install this by yourself. (1st jpg) The trailer hitch + bumper are heavy and are difficult to hold up and get the bolts started. I stacked up some blocks and scrap wood and threw a towel over it to protect the paint on the hitch. This holds the hitch to the right height and makes it much easier to hold up just the aluminum bumper to get the bolts started. (2nd jpg) Because the hitch has slotted bolt holes it is easy to accidently install it off center. I thought I had it installed right the first time because I measured the outside of the hitch to outside of the aluminum bumper on both sides, but it ended up being installed 3/16 of an inch off to the passenger side which way off of where it needs to be. To correct this I drew a line down the center of the Honda aluminum bumper and made sure the center of the hitch was lined up to the center of aluminum bumper before I tightened the bolts. The outside of the hitch mount may seem off alignment compared to the Honda aluminum bumper, but this doesn't matter. The center of the hitch being dead center to your car is what matters. (3rd jpg) The end result is excellent so I am happy! :-)


This was recommended and not needed for the hitch I chose but it will come in handy at some point!


This was a relatively simple and straightforward installation on my 2019 Volvo XC40. The directions were clear, although the black and white pics can be a bit hard to follow. I would add the following points. First, the left plastic rail in the spare tire compartment needs to be removed, and it has an odd hook at the front that is a challenge. It will come with some wiggling. It's equally challenging to put back on. Second, I used the Volvo ground terminal to ground the T-One module. Third, I ran the wire from the module to the positive terminal down through a grommet in the spare tire compartment, then along the brake lines under the car to the battery. This was easy to do with the vehicle on a hoist, but will be more challenging if you don't have access to a hoist. I removed 2 of the protective panels under the car to route the wire. It was fairly straightforward. The product works as advertised and fits very well in the car.


Was worth the cost to make the retainers easier to remove


Great product and fit as advertised for 2004 Outback. Customer support and service is excellent.


It's a purpose built tool that does what it's supposed to do. The service and the delivery from etrailer earns the above average number of stars.


I discovered it was easier getting the 'buttons' to release (center button) using a narrow-bladed screwdriver, but I found it easier putting them back using the tool. (Its shape allowed it to straddle the center button while applying pressure to snap it back through). Hitch & wiring harness were 5-Star Perfect!


Great tool


Well worth the price for the convenience of the right tool for the right job.


Great tool.


The good news is everything came and appears undamaged. The bad news is that the main box was nearly busted completely open; the box was cut in a few places to fit the hitch but the contents of the wiring harness kit busted open and floating around inside the box. The tester unit fell out of the box in my driveway by the delivery guy, thankfully I saw it when I went to get the trash cans. If it had fallen out elsewhere I may not have received everything.


Tools like this are not something everyone has in their toolbox. Having one they show will work is awesome.



No regrets on that purchase. Just ask your Ford dealer how much to install a hitch and wiring. Mine quoted me near $1000........Yeeeaaaa!! NO!


Worked great


Never actually needed but I got it just Incase I did. Better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it.
