Because the iPad dropped on the floor
It was good and iFixit tools are great but the tools given are limited.
The iOpener doesn't keep much temperature so it must be reheated many times. I used instead a hot water bottle that has a smooth surface and the water inside at 80°C (176° F) keeps the temp for a longer time so I could concentrate on removing the small pieces of glass. The iOpener is good when the glass is one piece and I can put the guitar piece of plastic along the line.
I also had problem with the plastic spudger which got worn after some glass removal. I have the complete iFixit tools and then I used the metal spudger which has a longer life on its thinner area.
Beware the small pieces of glass and wear clear safety glasses.
A magnifier is not a safety glasses you can wear it over the real safety glasses...

My son dropped the iPad (in the case) on a tile floor and the screen shattered from one corner.
The first screen that I received went on relatively easily after reviewing the guide. When I pressed it into the bent corner, I must have misaligned it, because it snapped and broke again.
I was devastated, but after emailing one of the reps at iFixit I was given a code for a discount on a 2nd attempt.
The second screen arrived and this time I was very careful to clean out the bent area and bend/shave away anything that might be in the way of the glass laying down.
The glass aligns in a tiny black plastic channel all the way around the case. This must be perfect or it won't install properly. If the black plastic is damaged, it's best to cut it away rather than part of it fold up under the glass.
