Some reviews say that the tool is junk and can break after the first use.... Well ya, its plastic and somewhat flexible to be able to not damage or tear the aluminum, its not bulletproof and requires finesse. If the tool broke on you its because you lost patience. Do not force the tool through the heavily damaged coil, hence the butter knife action first then give her a good comb!
No I found out that it's SOOOO much better to take off any guard that you might have protecting your fins.
You have to find the correct angle when using this so take your time and see what works best.
I found our that if your have really bad best blades you'll need to work those at the angle that they are bent at, then slowly set them straight.
All and all I really wish I would of taken a "before and after" photo as the final results we're amazing. from really bad bends, to looking almost perfect. My a/c guy even commented how great they looked.
I would buy these even if you don't have bent blades, or a brand new unit. You'll need them someday, and at the price it's worth every penny.
FYI: I've never done anything like this before, i'm a first time guy that was blown away by the results.
Note that this isn't strong enough to bend up any fins that are literally crushed in. For that, you need to use a small screwdriver to pry the fins up before you use this tool.
It takes some time finding which one is the proper fin size for your system. Mine was 18 per inch.
One suggestion I have is wrap tape around the comb that’s the proper size for your system so when you use it in a year or two or three later you don’t hve to try and figure it out again.
I found it works well in both up and down strokes depending on the angle. For me, the center of the unit works best fixing fins with down strokes, the top and bottom sections work best with up strokes. When fixing fins on the inside I used up strokes no matter where the fins were that needed to be fixed.
The only other suggestion I have is clean the unit first and then go slow. If it’s all full of dust and gunk it’s going to be hard to start the comb.
If mine breaks I will definitely buy a replacement without a second thought.
I got the items and went to work on the fins, and pretty much found what my research had prepared me for, which is these combs work well but when you have a seriously bent patch of fins it probably won't just slide through and straighten them out. I had places that looked like a baseball had smacked into it, with the fins crushed more than bent, and this just won't do it on its own. I had to use an assortment of items to get them somewhat straightened out, namely a dental pick, wooden toothpick and sometimes a plastic card to get them at least somewhat erect. After that a careful pull with the proper size comb would get them in much better shape and evenly spaced. You need to take your time and make sure that you use the proper size comb, and be careful to be sure it's aligned properly or you'll squeeze the fins together instead of spacing them out. The whole deal took me about 4 hours, including disassembling the compressor to take the protective grill off for 100% access to all the fins then putting it all back together. While I had it apart I also used a power washer to clean out the fins, being very careful to not blast them back down again. The amount of dirt that came out was substantial, so I suspect the cleaning might help efficiency as much as straightening all the fins.
The end result was what seems to be a much better airflow from the compressor fan, though this is just an impression since I have no way to actually measure it.
The comb I used made it through the whole process without breaking, which sort of surprised me. It looks a little worse for wear, but is still usable. Now that I know the size I need I would try to order just that one, and get a few extras in that size. But for less than 8 bucks it was certainly worth it.
So the bottom line is this isn't a magic bullet that will fix everything as quickly as you might want, but with a little patience it'll get the job done nicely.

The fact that this is not disclosed anywhere on the product description is very shady.
The product is also poor quality, fins broke before I finished combing my AC for the first time.
Fabulous tool. I LOVE THEM!
