The GT Tools locking strip tool design allows the tip to swivel 90 degrees in either direction. There are four different type eyelets that will fit the majority of rubber locking strips. Use the tip that most closely fits the locking strip. Insert tip into the rubber gasket and thread the locking strip into the eyelet of the tool. Then work the Locking Strip Tool around the glass while feeding the locking strip into the eyelet.
This tool comes with a bent shaft so that the user hand can be held away from the molding while the tool is being used.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Will this tool work to install locking strip on 1979 Dodge pickup windshield.
Thanks for your question. For your application we think our GT Tools Rope in tool will be best suited as we believe you have an exterior and interior flange that will hold the glass in place.
Step to get the job done:
1. Clean the glass around the edge
2. Attach the gasket on the glass first
3. Set the line in the gasket
4. Insert the windshield in the vehicle
5. From the interior pul the line which will lock the gasket in the interior frame of the vehicle
