This is the set that spawned the repair revolution. We have honed its contents to be both your everyday driver set and your go-to resource for all the security bits needed to open consumer electronics.
Each bit resides in a removable soft plastic block with five friends. The driver body is machined from a single piece of aluminum, with a ball bearing mounted swivel top. The flexible shaft is great for stereo work or other large electronics where all the screws aren’t on the surface. The drive adapter lets you use these specialty bits with any standard ¼” driver handle or most power tools.
When it comes to precision bit sets, there is no better kit. If you want something that looks as elegant as it performs, look no further than the wooden case for the 54 Bit Driver Kit. This case is emblazoned with the Fixers Fist, reminding all the world that we have the right to open our electronics. We believe that repair is noble, and so should you.

well as some of you may know, women tend to have long hair and that hair tends to get EVERYWHERE! (including the fan in a little electric heater) so instead of throwing ANYTHING away, i am one to reverse manufacture the device (whatever it may be) and diagnose the problem. 9 times out of 10 i can usually find the problem and figure whether i can (without the order of new parts) fix it or not. i usually can. i am a firm believer the IFIXIT way. anyhow. upon opening the heater because the fan was not working, i found that my wife's hair and become so abundantly twisted around the axle of the electric motor between the motor and the actual fan, it had almost stopped it from rotating completely.
i find that the most difficult part of any repair is the reverse manufacturing of the device. due to the unknown, i.e. lack of schematics. location of the screws (if any), the location of locking clips. (the plastic snaps that hold each side of the plastic cover together) and the pulling apart of all parts of the unknown device as not to break, tear or un-articulate any wires, circuits or pieces that might inhibit it from being reassembled again in a working and operational fashion. but once this is done the rest is much easier. the repair went well. i removed all the hair and reassembled the heater and it is now working good as new.
my advice with repairing any device. (whatever it may be) always document the usage of screws such as their size, type and location. i have worked on some laptops that wont even work unless there are certain screws in their correct placement and snug in their designated spot. so unless you have a very powerful memory. it is important (especially if it is a device never before opened or unfamiliar to you) to always write down and document how many, the size, the type and the location of the screws the hold it together. that way you have your own little set of instructions to go by when putting it back together. because you also never know when something more important might come up and you have to leave in the middle of a repair and you might not make it back to that repair before you have forgotten how you took it apart or what screw went it what hole. trust me on this, i have made this mistake myself. (many times). lol thank you for reading. good luck. ;)
my old bit kit was too worn out
No repair needed.
The 54 bit driver kit is well worth the money. Go for the wooden box kit, it may cost a little more but the quality is outstanding. I will be using this for many years to come.
I spilt wine on my macbook and it destroyed the keyboard. I had to use a USB keyboard for years until I somehow came upon this fix it site. My curiosity was peaked. I saw I could purchase the keyboard separate so I ordered it along with the dual hard drive enclosure to replace my defunct optical drive. I also ordered 16 GB of ram and a 480GB SSD drive to upgrade the current components.
I would be blind going at this alone, but with this site's extremely easy to follow guide I replaced my unibody keyboard, swapped out my optical drive with a dual HDD (which used to be the original hard drive), upgraded my ram from 2GB up to 16GB and changed my HDD to an SSD. I was ready to scrap this macbook, but because of this site my macbook is working like new and fully upgraded.
My advice is to simply use a muffin tin to seperate screws for each step to not mix them up. Otherwise follow the guide and it should be really easy. Saved lots of money by fixing it myself. The only hard part (but not really hard) was making an exact bootable copy of the existing hard drive to the new one.

Our current tools where rubbish, some of them 15 years old.
Great, the tools where ordered Friday evening, and arrived by lunch time Monday....In New Zealand, great job iFixt on getting the order ready and shipped so quick.
So far all the tools have been great, the wooden case for the 54 bit driver kit looks amazing.
The "friction-less" ratchet was a little disappointing, it has far to much friction to use it for most of the screws the 54 bit driver kit fit.
The Lightning connector stopped working.
Unscrewing and keeping track of all the tiny screws was kinda nerve wracking , but i made it through!
Keep track of your parts!
se rompio el touch
dificil ya que tuve que quitar los pedasitos de cristal
usar herramientas ifixit para que sea mas sencillo la reparacion
Took about 3 hours, but its done and I'm very happy.
Be very careful when pulling wire connectors the little gold heads are very soft!

Replacement. Slightly more difficult than changing the batteries in your TV remote. Follow the instructions. They are very simple and to the point.
Use the right tools for the job! Buy the tool kit as it has everything you will need.
Plus, once untethered from the Apple Store, you will use it again to update your RAM.
Giving a 3 year old a Kindle HDX has worked out well. Until he learned how to climb up and get it off the charger, which he does by just pulling it until he can play with it. The USB charging port wasn't very happy about this and promptly stopped working.
The Kindle HDX is a bear to get apart - much harder than the instructions indiciate. Getting the first back-panel off was difficult, and seperating the back case from the front was... a challenge. Given that the option was "throw it away, or get it apart" I was willing to break the device to take it apart.
Eventtually I got things apart, got the new part installed, and everything put back together. The Kind will certainly never look the same, but it sits in a leather case anyway so that's fine.
The good news - it worked. Much cheaper than buying a new Kindle.
As an aside, the 54 bit driver kit is very nice - probably the nicest overall precision screwdriver set I've used, and the huge assortment of different bits is very handy.
A Youtube video showing how to take things apart would be very helpful. Separating that screen from the case was non-obvious, especially given the sheer amount of force required.
Minor bit, but also include the size on the screws so that I can easily find the right bit. Those screw heads are tiny, and w/o a big magnifying glass I couldn't tell if the bits were too big or too small...
