Actually this method is very useful for depression dents on places like on doors, at places behind which there are crash protection roads. very difficult to push it from behind.

Also I used this method once in my Indica. but with a difference. If you use these suction hooks, you will have to initially press a bit to create suction pressure, which might put more deep dent.

I used my HTC car holder which has this clip to create suction pressure. So just put and pull the clip.

Hey riitz!
Am using a zen and i have dents on my top(Roof). I banged on the dents from inside, some dents disappeared but some are still left, though they are not sharp.


Please help.

I have done the same on my galant's (now sold) door, where the door metal was not easily accessible even after removing the door panel. I used the GPS suction mount and it easily came out, but went back in with the smallest tap. it sounded hollow while the other door sounded solid, must have been missing some filling inside.

Quite true

These methods do work only on certain kinds of dents. Not always.

The dent causes inward depression, if removed it will cause outward bump

Anyone used this - http://www.tradus.com/motor-pops-den...?src=cat-10139

Is this effective or a marketing hype ?
