Cool dent right in the body

so this isnt on my ranger but my moms suv and there is a small dent in the body
it is not to deep but kinda wide since the sheet metal body is pushed in
how can i get this to "bump/flex" out as usual and more or less do those cheap suction tools work.

PS_you dont wanna know how this happened!! (very stupid)

if the panel isn't creased i've had luck in taking a toilet plunger and wetting the panel and popping a few out when i worked at a used car lot.

Here's a trick you can try.
With a hair dryer, and canned air; heat the area with the hair dryer for more than one minute. Then immediately holding the canned air upside down spray the canned air over the entire area of the dent. Coat the dent generiously. Wait for the frost to completely melt, and then clean the surface.

I've included a video.

there are air powered suction cups that work great, see if any local body shops have one they all should and give them 10 buck they should be able to pull it

Default dent popping

ok so i watched this video last night and couldnt wait to try it today. i just got home and went to work on fixing this small dent in my door and it didnt work. i was very disappointed and was wondering if you have to have a big enough dent for this to work?

You can pull at least most of that out. Not much you can do if you have sharp creases, but I guarantee you can make it look 100x better. I've been meaning to ask, why is your avatar pic sideways? One day I was staring at it for a couple minutes before I figured out what the hell I was looking at....
