There is no way that dragging some wire tines over the lawn will dethatch the lawn. Those thing are just sold to homeowners who are too stupid to do it the right way.
When I dethatch a lawn with a Bluebird power thatcher I get truckloads of thatch out of the lawn. I like to take it down to dirt. When the lawn comes back it always looks like a new lawn.
This method works quite well in the Pacific Northwest, so depending where you are located your results may vary.
