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

Replaced built in optical drive with 250GB SSD drive. System was running really slow.

My Fix

It went well. Followed instructions and was pretty straight forward. Ran into a few hurdles....The screws can easily fall down into the case, which was very annoying. There is also a cable that has a very sensitive connector and after it had already ripped off, I read that you have to be very careful. Luckily nothing broke off. Putting it back was really tough as well.

My Advice

The only real thing that got me was the fact that no where in the instructions does it say you need to buy the adapter to fit the SSD into. Luckily I purchased one via Amazon and it arrived super fast. iFixIt also has one but it is pricy. I'm sure it's a well made one, but no one will ever see it.

There is also no info on how to ensure that TRIM is enabled. I had to go searching for a tool that did it. Cost me $10 for a simple application.

My Problem

thought i had a bad power supply because iMac had a problem turning on

My Fix

the repair went well 1 hour start to finish. wish i would have read a few more forums turned out it is the button after all according to apple my entire housing needs to be replaced in order to fix this. but i read a forum and as stupid as it sounds pick iMac up turn it upside down then touch the power button and it turns on no problem ugggghhh

My Advice

read forums. bottom line although the parts worked and the install went well. i really didn't need a power supply after all and i don't want to take my iMac apart again to send it back if they would take it back in the first place

My Problem

The 1TB hard drive crashed and I reformatted and restored it but then it crashed again about a day or two later.

My Fix

The hard drive replacement was a breeze. It took about 1hour and after formatting the new drive and loading OS X Yosemite all I had to do was restore my files from my backup USB drive. The free hard drive replacement guide was easy to follow. Also it was a nice upgrade from my original 1TB drive to a 2TB. Over all I am extremely satisfied with how everything went.

My Advice

The only issue I encountered was after I completed the install my drive fan was running at max speed. Got on the web and found an app called iStat Menus. This app had a menu that enabled me to control the fan speed with no problem.

My Problem

iMac Intel 24" Hard Drive Replacement. Hard drive went TU while I was using the computer.

My Fix

Repair was complicated with a lot of steps but not difficult, tools recommended and replacement drive were exactly right. Were in our 60's and got bored after supper the day the parts arrived. It took about 2 hours but I'm old, recovering from a stroke and kinda slow.

My Advice

Do it. Just take your time and follow the excellent instructions on line. While you have it on its back and helpless upgrade the RAM too. This saved me a bunch in repair bill or a new computer.

My Problem

The current 500GB drive had run out of space, so we upgraded to 4T.

My Fix

Everything went well, however a word of caution. The video cable mount is very tiny and you need small hands to reseat it.

My Advice

You don't need to remove the LCD screen, you can reach the screws that hold the drive in place by simply lifting the screen.

My Problem

The computer had started shutting down randomly.

My Fix

With no prior experience, I used ifixit's website and youtube video to help me repair the iMac. It worked!

My Advice

Watch for falling rocks.

My Problem

My iMac 27" I7 fully loaded audio production tool suddenly died. It would not power up at all and I could hold the power button down and nothing happened. I tried different outlets and power cables just in case. After a few moments of panic started to look online and do some research. I found out that my iMac was a 2011 model that was known to have power issues and a trickling effect of multiple components failing one after the other. I was really worried at that point, and thought it would have to be replaced. I bought it used, and it did not have apple care. I am an experienced computer technician but have rarely ever had to repair any of my Macs, so this was a little troublesome. I found the Ifixit site and began to read up on the failure. I felt it had to be a power issue since nothing happens when you pressed the power button and I found the parts and instructions for replacing the power supply inside the iMac. I ordered the parts and tools and crossed my fingers.

My Fix

The instructions were spot on and fabulous! I had the old power supply out in about 20 minutes and that included reading and rereading the instructions multiple times to be sure I was doing the correct steps. I compared the power supplies once I got the old one out and was a little concerned because they didn't match correctly other than the shape. Coming from a PC world, not having matching parts can cause imminent doom when you power up. But after putting it all back together again, plugging it in, and then crossing my fingers... I pressed the power button. That wonderful familiar sound of the drives spinning up and apple boot noise sounded like music to my ears. It is alive again and kicking.

My Advice

My advice is.... if your iMac won't power up and you don't have any warranty available to have apple fix it, give this a shot. The videos are simple and straight forward, the instructions on pdf are the same, and the parts just work.

My Problem

Original Hard drive failed in my iMac EMC2134. Symptom: On boot up the machine chimed but then the drive made a clicking sound and Startup software couldn't be found, nor any of the startup services with option keys pressed! I was left with a grey screen and a flashing folder with a question mark inside!

My Fix

The hard drive repair was unbelievably straight forward. Anyone that can follow instructions and turn a screwdriver could do It. The only real issue I had was working with the two T-6 screws on the LCD connection. These were short and fiddly to handle. A magnetic tipped driver would come in handy here as the screws fell between and under other components when being replaced and I had to fish them out. Working in a dust free environment is essential for seamless LCD cleaning and screen cover replacement. I used the disk utility on an existing CD ROM of iOSX Snow Leopard to format and partition the drive and then install the operating system, security updates and then upgrade to Yosemite. Perfect, and couldn't be happier!!

My Advice

Don't underestimate your ability to fix your iMac! With great technical directions from ifixit, you can't go wrong!! Happy as a clam and now looking for other items to ifixit!

Only advice is use of a magnetic tipped T-6 driver on the LCD connection as noted above.

My Problem

After 7 years of trusty service my iMac's hard drive flat-lined. I considered going to a repair service but after some web searching I found the ifixit web site and decided to try my chances at replacing the drive myself. (For $150 less why not right?)

My Fix

Bottom line: iMac 2210 had a Western Digital 320GB drive that I replaced with a new WD 1TB drive. I ordered the ifixit repair kit and watched the easy to follow instructional video. These guys know what they are doing because I was able to replace the drive with no real hiccups. Great job with your how to videos and narratives guys. Keep it up!

My Advice

Get yourself the main kit from ifixit's site and follow the video / guides patiently. It will all work out in the end.

My Problem

Computer completely dead as in no visible signs of life.

My Fix

Replaced the power supply. Followed the instructions in the repair guide to the T. If "to the T" means mostly. Took about an hour and 2 Coronas.

My Advice

It gets easier after the second Corona.
