Creative Repair Solution’s (CRS) 3D printed headlight tab repair kit allows users to repair OE or aftermarket headlights by replacing broken or cracked mounting tabs, restoring the lamp to its original position in the car. Currently, it is the first repair solution of its kind to receive independent verification and meet industry requirements.

Company's 3D-printed replacement headlight tab kits verified by CAPA

The Certified Automotive Parts Association on Tuesday announced it would “verify” replacement headlight tabs produced by Creative Repair Solutions.

CRS CEO Maurice Paperi said Tuesday insurers are highly interested in the technique, which the company plans to publicize at SEMA. The company at this point hasn’t pursued OEM validation, according to Vice President Steve Arnone.

A CRS presentation notes that headlight tabs “are virtually non-repairable in a collision event,” and aftermarket headlights are being squeezed out as “OEMs are branding headlamp components.”
