Not sure on what size you’ll be needing the most often? Problem solved with this super affordable, super durable, Super PDR Bridge Puller Set! This product is a lot different to the ones we’ve just discussed. Instead of a vacuum locking system, this uses a special kind of glue that you put on to the gentle rubber surface, let dry for a little but not all the way dry, which will have a strong attachment to what you are pulling.
There are six different sizes for different sized dents, all different sized attachments use a porous system which helps the glue get a stronger hold. The glue and glue gun do not come with this set but are pretty affordable, even when bought together with this whole kit! Take note of the humidity and temperature of the area during time of use as it affects the amount of time it takes the glue to dry. The rubber attachments connect to the knobs which you turn to tighten the pull and puff out any sized stubborn dent!
Here we have a set by the same company that works just the same as their previously mentioned product. You can pick from two different styled glue guns and two different colored glue, yellow or clear, whichever you prefer. Yes! Unlike the PDR Bridge Puller Set, this one comes with the glue gun and 5 pieces of glue sticks!
The hot glue gun is powered at 100 watts, can be plugged into either 110 volts or 240 volts wall sockets, and can melt a full glue stick in 2 minutes, but the suggested best time for melting is around 5 to 8 minutes. The yellow glue sticks melt faster, have a much stronger hold, and dries really quickly as it has a lower melting point, unlike the regular clear glue sticks. This set includes the familiar 6 different sized rubber attachments to the turning knob and the thickness of the porous rubber surface is 0.12 inches to allow for a sturdy pull.
When it comes to choosing, it all mainly depends on the three most important factors you need to analyze in your situation to be able to pick the right dent puller. Think about the amount of weight you need to lift, the size of the dent you are pulling, and which type of puller you would prefer to be using.
We have two main types of dent pullers listed in this article and the first is a suction cup dent puller. Most of these have levers that allow for a powerful vacuum seal locking system with the flip of the lever, and another flip back to release. These things have such great suction and pull but are usually not able to fix slight creases. These things are usually fairly affordable depending on the brand, and come in different sizes that are not adjustable. The great thing about these suction cup dent pullers is that you don’t need glue, you can use any small amount of lubrication and apply it on the surface it will be pulling or the inside of the suction cup, this will create a strong suction, if you don’t have lubricating products such as oil, you’ll find that soapy water and even water on its own will assist in the suction of these dent pullers.
If you aren’t sure about what size you’ll be needing, or if you want to have a set with different sizes available set aside for handy. The sets by SuperPDR are a great choice. These things work super well, are extremely durable and have different sizes for different jobs. They are also very affordable, along with the glue gun and the glue sticks that are required. These rubber pads that attach to a turning knob have holes for the glue to be able to seep into for a stronger hold. No need for actual pulling, just twist the knob to tighten the attachment to what you are pulling.
It’s important to look at other factors such as affordability, durability, and effectiveness. You’ll find that reading the reviews on each product will be very helpful in giving you first hand information about each dent puller. Take a look at the pictures, and determine exactly what you will be needing, there are some pricey ones out there but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t invest in them, there are some really affordable ones too and it’s all about doing your research rather than making a quick judgment to be able to find the perfect dent puller fitted for your situation.
