Your #BlueAndBlack Contest Submissions Warmed Our Fixer Hearts

If you’ve been around here long enough, you know that Blue and Black are the colors of iFixit. And to celebrate Blue and Black Friday last week, we asked you to tell us what you’d fix with our seasonal tool bundles. Your ensuing submissions made us smile all Blue and Black Friday long—we heard from teachers, parents, independent repair technicians, home cooks, and even amateur pianists who had something to fix or mend. We promised we’d give 10 of our favorites some free bundles, so without further ado, here are the winning entries. We hope you enjoy reading their posts as much as we did 🙂

Even though the contest is closed, keep on tagging us in posts with the hashtag #BlueAndBlack—we love seeing all the ways our community of fixers are putting our tools to use! And if you didn’t snag a seasonal tool bundle last week, it’s not too late to get one—we’re offering reduced prices on our Blue and Black toolkits all through December when you buy them in a bundle!
