Removing Crease Dents with Glue Pulling Tabs


Is your car suffering from crease dents?

Crease dents are the result of objects which impact a body panel of your car and are then dragged along the body panel, creating a crease dent. This includes objects like low-hanging tree branches and bike handlebars.

Crease dents can also result from impacts of any long straight objects, like a car door edge or a garage door impacting your roof. The best way to repair crease dents is with Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) from a professionally certified technician.

If you live in or around Sioux Falls, South Dakota, this means going to Sioux Falls Dent Repair for the best PDR results for your crease dents or other dents and dings.

Removing Crease Dents with PDR Glue Pulling Tabs

Removing and repairing crease dents with PDR is done by a certified technician, who uses a combination of special PDR glue pulling tabs for the job. These glue pulling tabs are placed on the crease dents strategically and pulled using PDR techniques without damaging the body or original paint coat of your car.

The crease tabs range from small tabs, around 2 to 4-cm long, to larger ones, around 10 to 15-cm long. There are all types of tabs — some have textured finishes while others are smooth, some feature softer build materials, and others feature mechanical movements for added flexibility.

They all have a purpose, and certified technicians use them for dealing with the various aspects of different crease dents.

Sioux Falls Dent Repair PDR Techniques and Pulling Tabs for Crease Dents

The certified technicians at Sioux Falls Dent Repair use PDR techniques and special glue pulling tabs to fix crease dents. Here are some of the special glue pulling tabs commonly used by us.

  • Black Plague PDR Tabs

One of the first innovators of high-quality glue pulling tabs, Black Plague PDR tabs are still commonly used for crease dents at Sioux Falls Dent Repair. The new tabs are green, unlike the black initial ones.

The new green tabs with a straight black cavity for glue provide contrast and lessen the difficulty in performing PDR. It reduces excess waste of glue and enables precise PDR pulling techniques. Their Smooth Tabs Gang Green Edition is also great for crease dents and commonly used by us.

  • KECO Tabs

Well-known in the PDR world for its durability, KECO Tabs produces some excellent and innovative glue pulling tab designs for crease dents, some of which we use regularly. A KECO tab we use regularly has several slits on it.

This makes the tab flexible and allows our certified technicians to put pressure on specific areas of the crease dents instead of the entire tab covering the crease. One innovative tab selection from KECO Tabs is the Viper Modular Articulating Glue Tabs range.

The beauty of these tabs is that they are modular. Hence, they allow you to add or remove individual tabs depending on the unique crease dent’s requirements. You can also bend the Viper tabs in either direction for more customizable approaches and flexible PDR techniques.

  • Other Tabs

Similarly, the smaller Ice and Blue tabs are commonly used for dents and dings at Sioux Falls Dent Repair because of their different strengths – Blue is softer, Ice is harder. We also use many other glue pulling tabs apart from the mentioned ones.

Often there are so many choices and unique options, resulting in some tabs not being used for months and others being used regularly. Just like most professionals using tools, certified technicians develop and hone their PDR techniques with familiar tabs.

Over time, they get used to some while others are only used in special cases. Moreover, most dents, dings, and crease dents do not require all the special PDR tabs every time.

Crease Dent Glue Pulling Tabs

When we last discussed glue pulling tabs, we talked about the smaller ones that we use here at Sioux Falls Dent Repair. Today, we’ll be looking further and getting to know a little more about the crease tabs that we use in the shop.

There are all types of crease tabs, as you can imagine. Some with textured finishes and some smooth. Black Plague PDR was probably one of the first names to introduce the high quality pull tabs and we continue to use them today. The first generation of pull tabs from Black Plague PDR were actually all black in color but have now changed to green and black. The new tabs come with a cavity along the surface which allows us to apply the glue in a straight line. This helps us reduce the amount of glue being used and also gives us a precise pulling technique.

Black Plague PDR has all different types of pull tabs and in all different sizes. The second generation included a copper thread insert to stop the bolts from breaking off from the plastic body. Another commonly used tab is the Smooth Tabs Gang Green Edition and they work pretty well on almost all types of crease dents.

The newer tabs that we use and that are available in the market right now are from KECO Tabs. These are also being used now by body shops more often because of their durability. As you can see, one of the tabs actually has a number of slits in it. This makes it so that the tab is flexible and the technician can put more pressure on a certain area rather than the entire tab. Another ingenious tab from KECO is the Viper Modular Articulating Glue Tabs range which allows you to remove or add individual tabs according to the kind of dent you’re working on. Plus, the Viper Modular series can be bent into customizable angles for an even better PDR experience. Once again, we also use the Ice and Blue tabs that are used for different kinds of dent jobs and have different strengths.

We actually have so many tabs to choose from that we often don’t even use some and sit in the shop for months before we actually put them to use. As is with most tools, once you get used to certain tools and accessories, it is hard to move to another design.
