nope sorry, the guy used a long craft knife to make a small hole to pass the wire thro, then sorta sawed his way thro the thing. was the windscreen on the van tho, not a rear screen. as its not a broken screen, i guess its a case of just being careful.

stab it in and then use the wire n handle to pull the metal point thro the silicone, looks iffy to me tbh.

i would be tempted to grab some 2.5-5mm cable, like brake cable for bikes, and carefully pop a hole thro the silicone and try to cut the stuff out by keeping the cable away from the glass and back against the metal, if its damaged [tailgate] then you dont have to worry bout messing it up.
