How to Use Alpine Stereo Removal Keys
Alpine in-dash receivers are mounted inside a bracket that is bolted to the dashboard of your car. Although this provides a secure housing for the stereo, it makes accessing the rear of the receiver cumbersome, as you must dismantle the dashboard to access the receiver's rear panel. If you need to quickly access the rear of the receiver to adjust connections such as the power or speaker cables, or if you would like to add an axillary input cable, proprietary stereo removal keys allow you to pull the unit out of the housing.
