SmartCut is a very light and simple to use windshield cut out tool. Due to its small size it can be used for windshields, backlights and also quarter lights. Thanks to it’s compatibility with steel wire (SmartCut Square Wire) and PE fiber (SmartCut Fiber) it can be used on all types of windshields.
Protect the car body with tape. Pierce the existing adhesive with the awl, preferably in one of the bottom corners
Fix the wire/fiber to the awl and pull it inside. Pull 1x the diagonal length of the windshield inside
Place the wire/fiber completely around the windshield. Make sure it is positioned at the place of the existing adhesive. Lock the wire/fiber in the reel
Place the wire/fiber on the SmartCut. Position the SmartCut at the corner of the windshield as shown. Wind up the wire/fiber using the ratchet lever
Wind up the wire/fiber to the maximum angle of 80° to the cutting direction. Cut carefully around the corner
Move the SmartCut to the next corner, release the wire/fiber to reposition. Repeat the process
Continue as shown until the adhesive is cut completely
It may happen that the resistance on some spots will be higher. On these spots it helps to saw with the lever. This will cause sawing on the wire/fiber and the spot will release easier.
