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. .

The trim pad remover is perfect for easily prying up plastic or metal trim fasteners to safely open up panels in your vehicle. The contoured handle allows easy access to fasteners. The trim pad remover helps to prevent blemishes on surfaces.


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.


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! :-)


One year later I'm extremely pleased with this purchase. I often chuckle when I see stock hitches and the whole thing is visible while mine is neatly tucked under with everything hidden except for the 2" receiver. 10/10 have recommended etrailer on many occasions to friends and family for their service and know-how. Since installing my hitch I towed a pop up camper 1500+kms and do frequent trips to the dump or my local dirt and gravel yard for supplies. Love it!


Thanks for the quick response to my call.
were able to get the hitch installed time for my son's trip.
A trip with no boat would have been no trip at all!!


Good tool to have for sure with all the plastic trim connectors but we found a butter knife to be better or at least a very good complimentary tool for certain trim and tab removal situations.


Nice tool to have for removing the plastic push tabs that hold the facia to the bumper cover molding.


Essential tool for the inexperienced such as myself. I use it for removing trim for the purpose of hiding the trailer wiring. Works much better than the standard screwdrivers I have in my tool collection.

I used it the day I installed my hitch but havent used it since.

Great product and received quickly! Love the new trailer hitch and easy to install!


Always wanted one of these for my tool box. Works great


I want to thank "Tom" for his review on 1/10/2019 as it helped me out tremendously to use his same parts list for my own installation on our 2015 Toyota Highlander XLE vehicle. I luckily had a friend from church that had a lift so it made it a lot easier to get all the bolts in place and reassemble all the parts of the vehicle after installation. Here is my parts purchase list from etrailer: The Draw Tite 76156, 18144 plug mounting Bracket, Curt C56217 wiring kit, the ALL648544 Trim Pad Remover, and the Curt I26 Light Tester. You may not need the Trim Pad Remover but it was handy to have so we didn't break the plastic Grommets that hold a lot of the trimmings of the car together. These items also made for a clean look on the installation and this particular hitch (Draw Tite 76156) hides real well behind the bumber. I am very happy with the experience. I will definitely be using in the future.
P.S. definitely watch all the videos attached to this product page. They were very helpful in find your way around the car and tricks for making the installation easier and cleaner.


Worked well for getting trim plugs out.


All products arrived in excellent condi tion


Recommend getting the fastener removal tool. It’ll make the installation much easier th complete.


Was very easy to use. Worked really we ll.


Easy to use


Wasn’t sure if it was gonna be beefy enough to support my rack for my 2 ebikes. Very sturdy unit.


easy pry tool works good


Got the hitch, installed it the same day, and love it. Looks great!


Great quality, sturdy and easy to use. Much better than using a screwdriver.


Did not use but would have been perfect for the job


I was very concerned about gauging my trim with a flat blade screwdriver so I ordered this. It worked like a charm on my 2019 Subaru Outback’s paneling.

Worth the money over the cheap plastic ones.


This trim pad removal tool is well built but the working edge of the tool should be finer/thinner so that it could be easily slid under tightly fitting trim fasters - I found it necessary to use a small screwdriver to loosen the pad before using the tool to complete the removal.


Worked great.


Worked like it should.


this product was exactly what I needed and I could not obtain from a local supplier. Price was right. It arrived within a reasonable time frame, install directions were clear and the initial install was simple and I had connectivity right away. I was able today to test with the trailer attached and it all works. Thanks,
