Product code: IF145-071-1

Product Overview

Prevent electrostatic damage.

  • Helps protect your electronics from accidental electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage during repairs.
  • Ground yourself while working on sensitive electronics to prevent static charge build-up.
  • Custom manufactured by iFixit for "American" sized wrists. Most anti-static wrist straps are made for use in manufacturing throughout Asia, and do not pass our ergonomics test, if they fit at all!

"Rapid static dissipation by a wrist strap ground is required to prevent voltage spikes. Simple movements such as lifting one foot off the floor or raising one arm from a conductive table mat may change body capacitance by as much as 10% to 30%. Uncontrolled, the capacitively created voltage may reach several hundred volts or more."

My Problem

After very successfully replacing my 2005 HP iPod Photo battery with an iFixit kit, I just picked up a few items that will help on some of the miniature work that I'm into right now.

My eyes aren't getting any younger so the Head Magnifier, Helping Hands and Inspection scope will keep the details in sight.

The two Gerstner Toolboxes are going to free up some bench space and keep the small stuff organized.

The Flush Wire Cutter is the best there is and will make quick work out of small places.

The images show my 38" diameter digital clock that uses Atomic Clock reference reception of WWVB.

My Fix

My lighted hands digital clock will need everything from my tool order and more.

The clock uses two Microchip 8-bit controllers - One to advance the current Atomic Time, set time zone and adjust lamp brightness while positioning the two proportional servos to the correct hand positions. This chip also outputs a pulse-train of current time into a second controller chip that acts as a smart port expander that drives the twelve purple hour LEDs which pattern against the current time from a table of time & actions in its memory.

Some of my tools date back to the late 70's so a tool upgrade was sorely needed.

My Advice

As modern devices get smaller and smaller, the right tools are just what the doctor ordered.

My Problem

The battery on my macbook pro was broken, så i changed it for a battery from my girlfriends macbook pro because hers had a broken monitor.

My Fix

The rapair went flawless, with the tools and video from ifixit.

My Advice

No advice, Im just happy there is a website like this.

My Problem

My son spilled a glass of water on my wife's 2011 early macbook pro. The keyboard and trackpad no longer behaved properly

My Fix

The repair took a long time. It was difficult. But in the end it was successful.

My Advice

Take your time. It is a good idea to have an egg carton or ice tray (or two) to keep screws sorted in the order of the repair step. The hardest part I think was step 17 replacing the keyboard ribbon cable when I was re-assembling everything. What I wound up doing was using tape to grab the ribbon cable to pull it so it would seat properly. Make sure all cables attached to the logic board are available after re-seating the logic board. I had twisted the track pad cable, buried the subwoofer connector, as well as the optical drive. Got them all sorted out eventually.

My Problem

iPod screen

My Fix

It went well. We bought the pad because we had ruined a couple of iPods by not having one,

My Advice

To use an anti static mat to avoid frying the circuitry

My Problem

No enough default RAM (512MB only).

My Fix

Very well.

My Advice

No.

My Problem

My camera had bits of dust in it, and I want to clean it out.

My Fix

It went perfect, the suction cup is designed really and the ring makes it a insanely easy to properly lift off the display.

My Advice

Take everything one step at a time, and don't rush anything.

My Problem

Had to replace the logic board.

My Fix

Excellent.

My Advice

Your repair guide was perfect.

My Problem

I was watching a uTube video when the screen instantly went black, with no fan or hard drive noise. The iMac would not power on. By the symptoms of the failure, I guessed that the power supply had failed.

My Fix

First of all, I ordered the replacement power supply online from iFixit.com on Monday afternoon and it was delivered by 9:30am on Wednesday morning--amazing. Although I couldn't find a guide to replace the Power Supply in a EMC 2390, the guide for the EMC 2309 worked just fine. I took my time and carefully followed the 10 page downloaded guide. It took about 3 hours including setting up a work bench in a warm place, collecting my tools, and a 1 hour lunch break. My original power supply did not show any visible signs of failure, but when I reassembled the iMac it worked perfectly with the replacement power supply. My guess at power supply failure was correct. Now that I have been through the process once, I could repeat it in 20 to 30 minutes--it's easy. The suction cups worked great to remove the glass over the LED screen. The glass is held on with magnets.

My Advice

As a retired EE that is accustomed to working with very high reliability electronics (spacecraft), I would like to stress the use of anti-static wrist straps any time you work with electronics that have semiconductors. Electrostatic discharge can wipe out ICs and you may never know it until things don't work. Just clip the wrist strap to the aluminum chassis of the iMac.

My Problem

2011 Macbook air blown speaker. I was actually writing to compliment the customer service team. Some of the best I've experience. Very prompt, courteous, and highly professional.

My Fix

Made my repair experience phenomenal. Great work guys.

My Advice

Top rated site. Keep it up.

My Problem

No problem yet - I got the tools so that I can open my devices when I need to.

My Fix

No repair yet

My Advice

You may want to buy the tools before you need to perform a repair.
