Polyvance Shim Jim Tab Separator Tool Kit with Shims

The Shim Jim™ Tab Separator Tool from Polyvance helps the autobody technician to easily disassemble the aggravating snap-in tabs that often hold trim to the bumper cover. Many times a dozen or more of these tabs have to be pried apart to separate the components, and inevitably, some of them pop back together as you are prying others apart.

The Shim Jim's™ pistol grip design helps you easily pry the tab apart with a twist of the wrist. The business end of the tool has three different sizes to match narrow, medium, and wide tabs. Most importantly, the Shim Jim™ kit comes with 25 specially shaped shims that will hold the snap-in tabs apart while you work on prying the others apart. Once you have all the tabs pried apart and shimmed open, the parts separate without a struggle.

The Shim Jim™ kit is 100% designed and manufactured in the US by Polyvance, the leader in plastic repair and refinishing products since 1981. The pry tool is made of heavy gauge steel with a precision-ground tip and powder coated to provide many years of service. The pry tool also features a bottle opener to help you celebrate a job well done.
