Hey, I just saw this product on tv that removes small dents from your car. Its made by Simoniz which is a good name so I was wondering if it actually works, or if anyone has used it. The link is

I was curious about this one as well. Would be cool if it did but I wouldn't want to waste my money on something that would just collect dust because it didn't work.

I heard that the glue can sometimes not come off. I'd be interested to know if anyone actually tried this.

I bought it awhile ago - it works to a degree - if you have some minor dings and patience, it can take care of those, if they are pretty major, it doesn't work well.

Many of the dings take several times to remove, It is decent - gave me somthing to do on a weekend, so i wasn't terribly disappointed, but i wasn't expecting miracles going into the purchase either.

there have been so many threads on this it is nuts....the bottom line is this:

all of those hot glue dent pullers ACTUALLY DO WORK....not on all dents, and not always a complete removal, but they can make an ugly dent look alot better.....

i bought one from an as seen on TV store when my car was vandalized and a baseball sized dent was kicked into my front fender,,,it removed it 90 percent, there is still a slight waviness, but it looks a hell of alot better and it was better than 300 bucks to get fixed prefessionally....the waviness is fine until i get the car painted next year...


tiny dings dont work too well, the isnt enough surface area to pull on usually

The Ding King works way better. Don't get the Simonez one. The principle behind the Ding King is exactly the same as the professional tools. I have had great success using that one. I've never had a problem with the glue not coming off either. If you do it right then the glue stays on the tool anyway.

There are several threads here about the Ding King and member's success with it. I would strongly recommend reading those before buying the Simonez rip off of it. Not all dents can be pulled using this technique, but the ones that can come out, will come out. Some dents require going in from behind the panel. Dents on body lines won't come out with this all the time either. For about $20 bucks you can't really complain too much. Most PDR places charge more than that per dent. Even if you can pull one dent out then it has paid for itself.

it works on small dents, but is not perfect pop, if you see it at an angle, you can still kind a tell by a little. but just a glance, you can't see the dent.
