If you have ever tried to remove and reinstall a shift rod attachment clip under your Benz you know how frustrating it can be. On some chassis like the 201 models it is almost impossible to even get to the clip let alone remove it with standard hand tools!
Kent designed this tool after spending years fighting these little clips. You will be amazed at just how easy it is to remove and install the clips with this little tool. PLEASE NOTE: The tool comes with PDF instructions for use and for possible modification. Keep in mind that all clips are not exactly the same, so the end of the tool may need some "minor tweaking" to get it to work perfectly on your clips.
You insert this little tool in the back of the clip and then twist it. That motion opens up the clip so you can remove and install it on the end of the shift rod. The tool also holds the clip firmly to the end so you can reach up into the side of the transmission tunnel and work the clip on and off the end of the shift rod.

This clip tool is long enough that you can reach up inside the transmission tunnel and remove and replace it without dropping or losing it. The right angle bend on the other end allows you to easily turn it to either secure the clip or to open and remove it.
