    I use a small flat head screw driver. Works for me, and easy to find a screw driver.

    Ive had to pull the panels off my dads sentra a few times, since slim jimming the locks unhooks part of the lock mechanism.

    Haven't tried to remove panels in my Nissan, but the screwdriver technique worked well on past vehicles. The only bummer is when those plastic clips break from heat and age, have some spares if your ride uses those to hold the door panel on.

    If your dynamatting the door, you mostlikely have hundreds , maybe a thousand bucks worth of audio gear in there. It hasnt occured to you that the 18.00 tool might be worth the investment ?

    Besides if you have that much gear in the car, god knows you have lots of friends your showing it off to, that have, or will be doing the same thing to there cars - sell / rent the tool to them.

    You can, you just need to set up some relays,, I think Mastero even wrote some software that could do it
