We've all been there. You've gotten into a little fender bender and
ended up with a dent in your car the size of Nebraska. But one new
product is putting the smooth and shine back into your ride
with just a pop. Well, sort of. Pops-a-Dent is easy to use,
so we took it to an expert: John Kastrup of Perri's Collision in Grand
"I've worked on dents like this every day," said Kastrup.
So, you just have to warm up the glue gun, smear on the glue, and
attack that dent; but Kastrup is quick to point out it won't work on
every ding. "It's going to be impossible to pull out anything like
that size with this piece, but it might work for little door dings or tiny
dings," said Kastrup.
We zeroed in on the small dent, made some pressure and, pop! Strike one, but let's give it one more try just in case. Pop!
"The whole dent is still there," said Kastrup.
Actually, the dent was worse off after this product because it left the sticky glue on the car. So, our expert has to give it a failing score. "A-one, it doesn't work," said Kastrup. But the glue gun may be a keeper.
"It would work great for crafts. My kids would love it for building
stuff," said Kastrup.
Professionals suggest racing this product right back to the shelves.
