Re: Radio Removal

Go to your local building supply and buy one piece of hanger wire for 
hanging suspended ceilings - this will give you enough wire to make 
several sets of radio pulling tools. - Hey give some to your friends!

Note by making two you can pull the radio out all at once and don't 
need to go side to side.
