Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool Ive seen repair men use this tool before and bought it when i was having trouble with my ac unit. It was caked in grime and dog hair and had a bunch of bent fins. My home wouldnt get cooler than 86 before i cleaned the unit but is now back in the 70s. Its really easy to use but does take some time if it is badly damaged. The tool worked perfectly and is clean with straight fins now! June 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 1.0 out of 5.0 by listen to the reviews and pass on this I should have listen to the reviews and passed on this. unfortunately I got on a kick and bought it. the ends of the brush are round and not straight and are REALLY stiff. it caused more "damage" then it did good and by damage i mean bent fins. ironically, i bought the coil cleaner (blue can with a white top) at the same time. the top of these cans are a plastic brush. i tried to straighten the fins with that and it was AMAZING! only a few small spots i could not get straight.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by finn tool it wrok grate i would buy it agai again i would tell others about it April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well worth the purchase!!! Easy to use, more time spent on removing coil fan assembly & safety protection bars. August 18, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It worked well for my 1.5 ton condenser unit Once I figured out how to use the tool, it allowed me to straighten the fins, some being severely bent from my dogs running into the unit for 10'years. You have to take care that you line the teeth of the comb with the part of the fins that aren't bent then pull the tool up or down through them. Worked great for me! July 22, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Decent fin straigtening tool for home and automobiles If you need a tool such as this chances are your home a/c already has some heavy fin damage which this tool might or might not help. This tool along with patience and allowing for slowly straightening of your "not too badly" damaged fins will help improve both air flow and efficiency of your condenser fins. Be sure and use the slide to vary the distance between fingers of this tool and you should get decent results. What I have found is this tool will also work on automobile radiator and car a/c condensers if you again patiently do this fin straitening task. Be sure and also use a discarded tooth brush to also clean out dust bunnies and trash which all condensers accumulate during time. June 27, 2015
