Where is this product,I can't find it anywhere

Asked by: Tony
We had a hard time finding it ourselves. Turns out it was in the seasonal area next to the window units. However, if you get one, make sure the tines actually adjust before buying it, otherwise it will do more harm than good.

Customer Reviews

Air Conditioner Fin Repair Tool is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works good if you use it right, let the tool do the work... This tool works very well if you use it properly. It is adjustable, the strap around the tines is adjustable, it slides up and down to vary the spacing of the tines. This is a better tool to carry in your tool box than the other fin straighteners I have, they are pro tools and each one fits a different spacing of condenser fins so you need carry several sizes to do the jobs this one tool can do. Do not hesitate to buy this coil tool. The negative reviews do not reflect the usefulness of this tool, they do reflect the ability of the users to "Think Outside The Box" my Dad always said to let the tool do the work, don't be the tool...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Destroyed my outside AC unit Had a contractor use this tool on my unit and it is now destroyed. Fins are all mashed together and airflow is a fraction of what it used to be. Cooling efficiency is severely limited and only way to fix is replacement of the unit. Home depot needs to remove this item from their inventory. Many other places sell the proper tool with the appropriate gauges. Can't stress this enough.... do NOT buy. It will cost you thousands to fix the damage this causes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not adjust Bought one today at local store. I'd seen an adjustable one a handy man show in the past and thought this was the same one or at least the same type. I got it home, opened it, and the adjuster wasn't on the rake. No problem right? Well every tine on the rake was still attached to its neighbor much like staples in a strip. I manually separated each one. I then looked at the slide / adjuster and saw that it looked like it may have thought about having some serrations on it at one time but quickly changed its mind and left the little rough surface there as a reminder not to do something so silly again. Fast forward to getting the happily not serrated adjuster onto the rake. It slides up, it slides down. Nothing happens to the tines. Hm. Maybe the adjuster is on backwards. Let's try it again. Nope. It's just happy to slide up and down without worrying about serrations or doing anything to disturb the nicely parallel tines. The tines get to rest and relax while the adjuster gets to slide up and down all day long. Needless to say this one somehow must have passed through the exacting quality control process at the well run manufacturing facility. I would return it but it's frankly not worth the cost of gas to go back to the store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Actually works, but not like I expected At first I thought I'd be combing thru/along the length of the fins. That was wrong and almost gave up. Then I found if I rake across the flattened fins, the tool would lift up the bent over fins. After the fins lifted up I then could comb thru some of the fins. It is not fast or ez but I made a big improvement with this tools. Just be gentle when using it & take your time. I spent at least an hour on a 2.5 ton unit. I then sprayed bathroom cleaner on the coils & "gently" rinsed the whole coil assembly down. Now I can see light thru the openings and there is no question the airflow thru it has greatly improved. Too bad they don't include instructions with the tool.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as advertised As a field tech, I can say that this is only for cleaning the surface gunk off your coil - not straightening out the fins. For that you'd need a fin STRAIGHTENER. They are made of hard plastic and designed to do just that (just make sure you use the correctly spaced end on it!).
