Create your own kit

Outfitting a shop with the auto glass tools needed to get started off on the right foot is our specialty. While we have some pre-made handpicked package options available, we wanted to give you the opportunity to choose the specific tools you need for your situation and offer you the same kit discounts as our pre-made packages. Take 5 minutes and let us walk you through choosing all the essential items needed for the removal, prep, and installation of windshields/windscreens, quarter glasses, and back glasses. Feel free to call or live chat with us if you have any questions along the way!
