Default Factory Radio Removal help

So first I made my own removal tool out of hangers, then after those didn't work I spent the 3.60 I had on the official tool, but those arent working (I think they're going to far in) Is there another way to remove the factory radio?

Remove the radio bezel and see if there are any bolts. In my explorer, the radio was bolted in with brackets. Good luck.

Get a butter knife and slide it into the slot to pop it out. After you remove the radio bezel from the dash.

Hammer works great! Use the 10lb sledge works the first time everytime! But when we put in my aftermarket radio my friend had to reach thought the glovebox to help slide it in lol. We didn't think about taking the glove box out.
