Honda and Acura vehicles have tough clips to maneuver around when doing a windshield replacement job. The step clip used on most of their vehicles has four individual locking tabs on each side and they are staggered so a locking tab will catch as you push the moulding into place. If you push the molding down a little further, the next tab will catch. This is how Honda and Acura achieve that perfect fit, with an adjustable clip. This works great during installation, but it is a nightmare when you want to remove the windshield.
To remove this clip you must push in on one tab (on each side), pull the clip up about 1/16”, then the next set of tabs will catch and you have to repeat until the glass is free. Sometimes you must do this four times on each side just to remove one clip. This ClipFork™ from Equalizer solves this problem by pushing down on all the tabs at the same time. When the ClipFork is inserted into the clip opening it pulls all of the locking tabs up past the retaining catch. It is made of tough polycarbonate, thinned down to 1/8” to fit inside the clip release opening. A great tool for saving time, money and the stress of working with challenging windshields.
