  • It works but not as well as shown in TV ads

    Jul 31, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Makes dents smaller and less prominent.
    Cons: Messy, rather awkward to use, doesn't work as well as advertised.

    Summary: I've tried using this dent puller a number of times on my car for small dings and dents. It does work but not as well as shown in TV ads. To start, you have to put a black stick of adhesive in what looks like a regular glue gun. While that is melting, ... read more

  • One major success story here

    Aug 19, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use and worked just as described.
    Cons: No cons for me.

    Summary: I had recently purchased a used 2002 Toyota Sienna that was in great condition. The only blemish on the exterior was a dent on the liftgate near the handle. Whether or not the dent was easily fixable, I was going to buy the van anyway considering the ... read more

  • With patience, the ding became less noticeable

    Jul 4, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive. Adhesive and cleaner didn't harm car's finish.
    Cons: Adhesive isn't strong enough.

    Summary: It’s inevitable that a car will sustain several dents and dings throughout its lifecycle. Naturally, I’d be happy to have at least a year’s worth of use from a new car before accumulating any blemishes. Sadly, it only took three months for ... read more

  • Worth a try but don't expect perfection; may damage paint

    Jan 2, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use, inexpensive, fairly effective.
    Cons: May require a couple of hours work. May damage paint.

    Summary: The other reviews pretty much said it all with one exception; it might pull off some paint. The dent on my car was caused by a chunk of ice that came off a truck I was following. It hit just above the windshield toward the center of the car and created ... read more

  • Ding King worked pretty well but not as great as the demo on TV

    Nov 7, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very satisfactory results for price paid.
    Cons: Not enough glue remover. Results not as great as seen on TV.

    Summary: The Ding King worked out pretty well, but don't expect professional results. A number of years ago my car was sideswiped and it resulted in a long narrow dent that covered all three panels on that side. Since it was an older car and I didn't want my insur ... read more

  • So-So Review for the Ding King

    Aug 23, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Theoretically a brilliant product.
    Cons: The dent must be small for product to work.

    Summary: In an attempt to be thrifty, I ordered the kit from a discount retailer online. Failure to read the ... read more

  • Overpriced, but you will get the dent out if it's SMALL.

    Pros: It will get a dent out......
    Cons: ...... eventually.

    Summary: I bought this with severe skepticism. But I figured that the dents devalue my car and will get less ... read more

    Pros: Billy Mays on the box.
    Cons: Everything in the box.

    Summary: What a joke this turned out to be. If it pulled the dent out enough, I figured it was worth the twenty bucks. As it turned out, it wasn't worth anything. Washed the dent with the special soap and applied the suction cup as instructed. Twice the cup ... read more

  • Glue bonded to my vehicle, not the dent pulley tabs

    Pros: Cost
    Cons: Product does not work as stated

    Summary: I purchased this product with hopes of removing several small dents on the side of my vehicle. After carefully following the prep instructions, I proceeded with the placement of the dent pulley tab onto my car for 5-minutes, for the glue to ... read more

  • Cheap but not cheerful

    Pros: The glue gun may come in handy for something else
    Cons: Leaves glue on the bodywork. Doesn't work. Waste of time and money.

    Summary: The Ding King didn't work for me at all. I have three small dents to remove but it failed on all three. Whats worse is it leaves - difficult to remove - glue residue all over your body work. Making your car look even ... read more

    Pros: Doesn't harm the car finish
    Cons: Doesn't work

    Summary: I used this on a few perfectly round door dings without much success. Glue would give way long before the dent started to move I actually had more success using the round rubber suction device with a handle that is used for carrying smooth objects such ... read more

    Pros: inexpensive
    Cons: does NOT work like it said it would

    Summary: The ding king did NOT work at all. I had a ding on the hood of my car and I tried the ding king 11 times (one more than they recommend) and it did NOT even make a improvement but what it did was put scratches on my paint job from the glue ... read more

    Pros: Cheaper than body work but ...
    Cons: It did not work at all on my small dings!

    Summary: I followed the directions, tried three small dings on my Miata 10 times each (the instructions said it sometimes takes 10 tries) and I found that they were probably TOO small for the Ding King to work ... had no effect. Tried the device on a larger ding ... read more

    Summary: I bought the "Ding King" to get out an annoying little ding that appeared one day on my drivers side door. The product works pretty well and got rid of about 75% of the ding. For the money it is definetley worth ... read more

    Pros: Easy to use; much cheaper than using a pro
    Cons: Not quite professional results; time consuming; glue can burn you.

    Summary: Used the device on a total of 4 dents on 2 different cars. While the end result was less than perfect, significant improvement was shown and more probably would have been shown had I continued. I stopped after about 6 or 7 tries on each dent. Be ... read more

  • Not fantastic but not too bad - you will need patience

    Rated Show
    Pros: Inexpensive, easy to use
    Cons: Takes time and patience, can't plug glue gun into lighter socket.

    Summary: I had four small to medium size door dings in my car. The Ding King was able to reduce the size of all of them by 60-90%. It took on average ten tries per ding to get it to the best I could - about an hour per ding - which was pretty much a full ... read more

    Pros: None; however, apparently it works sometimes and it is worth a try.
    Cons: Did not work at all.

    Summary: Completely ineffective! Did not work for me at all - not even slightly! All of my dents were small and rounded. I followed all of the instructions to the letter but had no results whatsoever. I would have been happy with the results that others ... read more
