Lil Buddy is a company that specializes in creating innovative tools for the automotive glass repair industry. The lil-Buddy™ PRO allows a single technician to remove and replace both windshields and back glass quickly and safely, at any location.
In 1999, Kent Mayhugh began developing a prototype tool, which would become the original lil-Buddy™ model after five years of development. With 35 years of experience in the auto glass industry, Kent realized the significance of the tool as a solution for both small and large auto glass repair companies to improve revenue and reduce work related injuries.
Less than two years later, the lil-Buddy™ PRO was released and improved upon the original tool by supporting windshields and back glass for commercial trucks, recreational vehicles, van windshields and back glass.
The end of 2008 featured the release of the lil-Buddy™ PRO1, which added a clearly defined measuring system, heavy-duty sliding rod, and a driver or passenger side options to the series.
Our newest tool, the lil-Buddy™ Junior, was released in early 2009. Designed for use along with the lil-Buddy™ PRO1, these suction cups require NO pumping, retain a secure grip with a visual indicator, hold up to 70 lbs. each, and can be used for all applications.
Innovation & Development
We are committed to delivering outstanding value, continuous innovation and high quality products. Our products feature a durable, heavy-duty construction and are made to handle even the largest commercial vehicles on a daily basis. They are thoroughly inspected, and are backed by our one year warranty. Our dedication to design allows us to provide our customers products at a great value with the option to upgrade to newer models with more features. If you currently own a lil-Buddy™ PRO you can upgrade to the lil-Buddy™ PRO1 at a fraction of the cost of buying a new tool, while enjoying all of the same benefits.
