Polyvance’s 6146 Bumper Pliers Kit makes it easier for techs to repair the rectangular “slot tabs” found on bumper covers.
The kit comes with six steel forming dies varying from 3/8” (10mm) to 13/16” (20mm). It also has a die for a 3/16” (5mm) round hole with a round recess, which is commonly used on bumpers, especially on Hondas.
Each die also has a set of matching pliers to compress the melted plastic welding rod and conform it to the shape of the die.
The pliers press the welding rod to the same thickness as the flange while the die keeps it from flowing into the hole.
When cool, the die is removed and the outside edge of the slot tab can be restored with common hand tools.
