General Motors originally provided a 15128497 Roof Tool in the glove box of every SSR delivered. The Roof Tool is used to manually latch/unlatch the SSR’s convertible roof at the interior windshield header if power is lost or the roof cannot be closed using the power system.
Through the years, these tools have been lost (or discarded by an un-educated dealer or detailer on trade-in) with replacements no longer available from GM.
We have reverse engineered the original cast steel part so that it can be produced in a machine shop. The new part is locally crafted in Phoenix from hardened stainless steel and comes with round brass knobs and a vinyl tooling cap to protect the other things in your glove box.
This is a significantly upgraded copy of the GM 15128497 SSR Roof Tool.
See the SSR Owners Manual for instructions on how to use it.
