removing old weather-stripping (tool?) front and rear windoow..?

Does anyone know of a tool that makes removing the old weather stripping around the front and rear of the window of a Scamp? I watched the following link on Youtube, (tool is mentioned in frame 12:45) but I cant figure out what tool that is, or where to find one. If you cant get that link to open, type "Scamp Repair" in the search bar.

The tool is called a lock strip tool and is used for the installation. People use a combination of screwdrivers and putty knifes for removal and installation depending on whether on not a previous owner has erroreously used silly-cone attempting to stop leaks.

I bought the installation tool here: items in JB Tool Sales store on eBay!
Search the store for: Lisle 47000
Good price and quick service. I have yet to do this job though.

There are some good hints in this thread: Lock Strip Tool

Kevin Johnston put a few videos up on Youtube for the removal and installation. Kevin installs the strip backwards from the rest of the world because he felt it looked better.

I just cut a piece of 1/4 Lexan this afternoon I had laying around to reinforce the soft rear floor on my Scamp 16 under the water tank

Someone did a sloppy job of applying caulk to the Belly moulding on the outside. I picked up a piece of scrap Lexan and the sharp edge took the caulk right out and it didn't hurt the fiberglass Gelcoat at all.

I would avoid metal tools if possible
