Heavy-Duty Suction Cups (Pair)

$14.95

Product code: IF145-023-2

Product Overview

Get a heavy-duty grip on heavy-duty glass.

  • Large glass panels rarely come with handles—use these suction cups to safely lift and remove glass from LCD screens.
  • Ideal for gaining entry into iMacs and glass-sheathed laptop displays.
  • For smaller displays, like those found in iPhones and iPods, check out our Small Suction Cup.

For years we struggled with finding a reliable source for quality suction cups, so we bit the bullet and made our own. Specially formulated rubber foot sticks stronger and longer.

My Problem

My cat walked on my Mac-book and it crashed on the floor.

The screen broke in the meddle and the Apple store didn't want to repair it because too old (for them).

My Fix

I fixed it easily following the photo-sequence of iFixit web site,

However I suggest two improvements:

1. It's not necessary to use the Heating device and the suction cups, the screen can be removed with your plastic tool.

2. Be more SPECIFIC and CLEAR when describing how to remove cables: they are very fragile and a wrong movement may distroy them.

My Advice

Thank you. It works!

My Problem

Imac's are huge, had to access the hdd, and my cellphone cups couldn't do it reliably.. These... Epic

My Fix

Done, simple, amazing. Easy grip lift, totally working.

My Advice

Get these if you have to work on aio machines or iMacs.

My Problem

My iphone 6 screen was broken and i bought from another seller and it appeared to be of poor quality so i decided to buy from ifixit and it went all well

My Fix

Smooth. I had the islack which works like a charm. Easy to open the iphone

My Advice

Buy from reliable sources like ifixit

My Problem

General lagging and overall performance issues. After running TechTool Pro found that the memory and HDD in my 2010 iMac were failing.

My Fix

Replaced the memory (piece of cake). Purchased suction cups and after removing the glass panel I found the HDD replacement quite simple.

My Advice

Not really, just make sure you know which format OS X requires or you could spend some time dialing it in.

My Problem

used to open iphone 6

My Fix

excelent made the job easy

My Advice

none

My Problem

Dead hard drive in a 23" iMac

My Fix

It took me about 20 minutes. But, I am a stickler for perfection. Nothing exploded. Nothing imploded. There were no extra parts when I was finished. Opening up an iMac is both thrilling and terrifying! :)

My Advice

I didn't need the spudger at all, as recommended. I'm glad I had it and didn't need it instead of not having it and needing one. On the video, it would be infinitely more helpful if the shot showing what "wire" need to be disconnected was a wider shot so you can actually see what, and where, the wires to be disconnected are. That was pretty much a guessing game. Guessing on a machine like that can be a little scary until you put it all back together and...WHEW!...it works!

My Problem

Remplacement du disque à plateaux par un SSD dans un iMac 27" late 2012.

My Fix

Tout s'est très bien passé. Merci iFixit pour les tutos. J'ai juste manqué un peu de patience et fendu le coin en bas à gauche de l'écran

My Advice

Ne jamais faire effet de levier avec le "plectre" qui sert à décoller l'écran

My Problem

Cloudy display, looked like dirt and condensation behind the glass

My Fix

After watching the video that explained the problem, repair and process, I decided to buy the glass suction cups from iFIXIT and tried it myself. Could not have gone easier, and fixed the problem 100%! iFixit saved me again. Thank you for your dedication to DYI.

My Advice

Don't be afraid to make your own repairs. Watch the videos, over and over again. Be familiar before you start, that's the key to success with no surprises. GET THE RIGHT TOOLS. You can not have a successful and easy repair without the right tools.

My Problem

Las computadoras de disco mecánico ya tardaban mucho en encender y a cada rato salía la pelota playera dando vueltas, signo de que el sistema está pensando o atorado.

My Fix

La reparación fue sencillísima, las cosas que compré en iFixit me llegaron rapidísimo! Y las guías me sirvieron perfectamente.

My Advice

Mi consejo es que hay veces que se pueden utilizar los dedos en lugar de herramientas o pinzas, para zafar los conectores, tendrás más control y menos riesgo de romperlos.

My Problem

Basically, my original hard drive has served well for the last 8 years, but was finally fading. It just couldn't handle being the boot drive anymore, and kept getting lost when I tried to boot from it. In Recovery mode, it would only sometimes appear in Disk Utility: sometimes looking just fine, sometimes appearing as an unreadable unformatted disk, and sometimes just not showing up at all. Booting from an external drive, I did manage to salvage all of my files, but even booting from the external, the internal just sometimes didn't feel like playing. I tried everything to salvage it, including several reformats and reinstalls, but nothing would save it. For about 2 weeks, I just lived with simply booting from the external all the time, never knowing if the internal would be in a mood to work. But it's a USB external, not something smoother like a Firewire, so I just wasn't enjoying my old Mac as much as I usually do. So I decided to get a new drive.

My Fix

The repair went very smoothly. I've opened it up before to dust it out, so that wasn't so difficult. Once you pop the glass, the bezel, and the screen off of it, it's just a simple matter of popping the old HD out and the new one in. Probably my biggest difficulty was that my big fuzzy cat was intensely curious about the process, and stray cat hairs kept getting inside, especially between the LCD and the glass as I was trying to put it back together. Overall, it took me about an hour, but mostly because I was very curious myself, and spent a lot of time just looking at how the guts of the thing were all connected. I had fun, and I like that this new drive is significantly larger.

I had so much fun with it that I kind of wish I could do more upgrades to it, like swapping in a more modern GPU. Alas, my research indicates that the 2600 it came with is the fanciest GPU it will accept. And it's still working fine, just getting dated. Oh well.

My Advice

Keep the cat in another room.

Also, I think what ultimately did in my old HD was too much heat over the long-term. As it gets older, it seems like this iMac's automatic fan speeds are no longer accurate or sufficient, even if you dust it out regularly. I recommend any one of the many open source fan control programs out there to ramp up the fan speeds a bit. Try to keep things under 50° C if you can.
