      A:  It is kind of an obscure tool and I'm not surprised that associates wouldn't know about this. The Home Depot app tells you exactly where in the store the item is supposed to be located. If it's not on the shelf, you could always order it online and pick up in store. That way, the associate has to find it for you. Last, you could also order it and have it delivered right to your house! I hope this helps!

      A:  try a different Home Depot in your area, or order online, that's what I did.

      by|Mar 26, 2021

      A:  No one at my store knew what or where these were but I ended up finding them in a section of AC accessories in the same aisle as the Fans. Depending on your store, seems like they could also be in HVAC aisle or by the front near the actual AC units

        A:  Look where you see the product on here after selecting your store and it will tell you the aisle and section where it is located.

                    This worked very well. It was well worth the price. It takes a bit of practice and care in the beginning to make sure you don’t do more harm than good but once I got the hang of it, it straightened all my bent fins. I can see keeping this around just in case they get bent in the future.

                    I had to go back to the store and purchase the fin repair tool when the fins on the back of my AC were damaged as we attempted to remove it from the box (it was ridiculously over packaged). Unfortunately, the fins on my AC were so fine and thin that the repair tool was not able to separate them to sufficiently repair the heavy damage, although it was able to straighten out some lighter spots. The teeth on the tool are sturdy enough to straighten anything as long as they can get in between the fins. I would recommend it for straightening light damage or for fins that are not quite so fine.

                    This fin comb works absolutely brilliantly! Use it the exact same way you would use a regular comb to untangle hair, find a good area and work your way through the bad areas. In really bad areas, repair one or two fins at a time. As you can see in the pics, one entire face of the coil was 100% smashed flat (it was like that when we bought the house). I worked from the top and bottom edges towards the middle. The end result is our HVAC evaporator coil has stopped freezing over, the condensing unit operates much more quietly, and the HVAC runs for half as long. Another benefit, the comb fin also digs out junk that is embedded deeply in the coil. Thus I am going to use this to clean out the evaporator coil as well.

                      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.

                      Well worth the purchase!!!
                      Easy to use, more time spent on removing coil fan assembly & safety protection bars.

                      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!

                      Worked fine. It takes some patience and working from both the top down and the bottom up.
