Lil Buddy is a company that specializes in creating innovative glass removal 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 glass removal 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, improving 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™ Pro 1, which added a clearly defined measuring system, heavy-duty sliding rod, and a driver or passenger side options to the series.
Our newest auto glass removal tool, the Lil Buddy™ Junior, was released in early 2009. Designed for use along with the Lil Buddy™ Pro 1, 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.
