The StudBuddy will allow a technician to quickly grip studs (pull pins) with the jaws and using the pad as a leverage point , effortlessly pull the dent out. No more cumbersome banging with a slide hammer, no more guessing if you pulled enough. You have direct control over the pull.
A strong reinforced Metal lever with pivoting base and self-locking stud clamp mechanism allows the technician to quickly lock and lever studs while also compressing the crown area of the dent with the pivoting base. Adjustable pivot base on the Stud Lever allows one-handed operation and provides increased leverage, accuracy and reach for the pull and crown compression processes both vertical and horizontal, including roofs and lower rocker panels.
StudBuddy’s unique stud clamp mechanism allows technician to quickly and easily capture both 2.2mm and 2.6mm studs as close as 3/8 inches apart.
The StudBuddy allows the technician to align the stud and pull with the non-damaged metal area for accurate pulls on the initial pull which minimizes metal work and reduces the need for slide hammers.
Labor/Material Savings: Quick attachment to stud while combining leverage, accuracy and compression of crown area with the initial pull reduces the metal work in the dent repair process by 15 minutes per hour.
