Body Rivet Tool

New ATV's have a lot of plastic body work.  To do any work on these newer machines you need to remove a lot of body panels. Most of the panels are held together with push in plastic rivets. In the past I would have to use the tip of a small screw driver to pry them up and then grab the edge with a pair of needle nose pliers.  This was time consuming and often chewed up the head of the rivet.

I ground special notches into the tips of these pliers to grab the edges of the rivets.  With this tool I can grab the thin edge of the rivet and pull it out all in one motion.  It is much quicker, easier and does not mar the head of the rivet.
