Is it possible to buy an iPhone 5s screw set with labeled screws?

I can't seem to find one, but I would like to buy a 5s screw set where each of the screws are labeled by size.

I know I can buy the screw sets with all the screws mixed, but this isn't really gonna help me. I know that one screw in the wrong place can cause irreparable damage to the logic board.

Anything labeled as to which screw goes where, or just by screw size would do, then I can follow the ifixit guide and use the correct size screws for each step.

@yumyab Nobody sits down and labels individual screws.

If the digital caliper is to expensive and you have good eyes, you can get a Boley gauge for $5.02 and free shipping here:


@mayer You know, considering that we are concerned about screw length differences of only 0.1mm and that the consequence of mis-measuring said screws is killing the phone, I think it makes more sense to spend the extra 10$ and get a proper digital caliper that will give you the proper measurement.

Just MHO.


LSD, it's not just for the hippies anymore!


@theimedic You do mean LSI, right? Of do take LSD and sit and measure and label screws all day? Screwy!


@mayer I tried that too! It was fun! But not much actual work got done! Also I can't find where I put many things!
