Product Details

Description

Description

Built specifically to easily remove broken 3.5mm headphone plugs from jacks.

The cylindrical shape allows the tool to be inserted in between the jack housing and the broken piece, physically isolating the piece from any friction against the jack walls. At the same time the split in the cylinder allows for manufacturing differences and acts as a kind of cylindrical pliers to grip the broken piece.

This tool is designed for repair professionals, and will pay for itself with the repair of a single device. With careful use it can survive to repair many devices. Be sure to do research into proper use techniques before using.

This tool comes with no guarantees implied or expressed and should be considered a single-use tool. All sales are final and no returns will be allowed.

Repair Stories

My Problem

While I was on a trip, the tip of my headphone jack broke off in my laptop. I heard about the GripStick tool so, I ordered one as soon a I returned.

My Fix

The repair was fine. It took some strong taps on the GripStock but I got it in and the broken tip out of my computer.

My Advice

When inserting the GripStick, you . . .

My Problem

I work in a Public School District. It is an urban district. Technology is not always treated with respect. I had a number of iPads, Desktops, and Chromebooks with 3.5mm pins stuck in the audio port.

My Fix

It took me a few tries the first time, it worked on all of my devices. I have used it numerous times. . . .

My Problem

A headphone jack broke off inside the headphone port.

My Fix

So easy! I am relieved there is a tool to assist with this because I teach elementary music and I know more headphones will break off in the ports.

My Advice

Watch the YouTube video!

My Problem

aux cord stuck in an aux jack, ergo ipad was left without any sound.

My Fix

The GripStick worked perfectly. It was a lot smaller than I had anticipated, but it got the job done in one pull. I would recommend always gently using small pliers to add an extra layer of squeeze, but other than that, the product . . .

My Problem

Brought iPhone SE to Apple store to remove the tip of the ear phone plug. They couldn't remove it and wanted to replace the entire cell phone with a new one. My iPhone SE cost only $140 and Apple was going to replace it for $250. To think they didn't have the appropriate tool which cost only $30 . . .

My Problem

These devices are used for K-2 grades at school and without sound they are useless.

My Fix

I have 4 iPads with audio jack broken off inside; 1 came out clean and the other 3 are still stuck.

One of four was repaired, expensive little piece of tin but it worked, on one which saved buying a new device.

My Advice

Do not . . .

My Problem

I teach first grade. I had an ipod and ipad with broken headphone ports stuck into the headphone socket. I had sent this equipment to our Technology repair department. They said they couldn't be fixed and the repair would be more costly than the equipment was worth. I searched online and found this . . .

My Problem

I work supporting special needs students with various devices that use headphones. Many get dropped while headphones are plugged-in breaking off and leaving a piece inside the headphone port. Before many of the devices would be put aside, some with stirrrers or writing pen inserts sticking out not . . .

My Problem

The auxiliary cord broke off in the headphone jack.

My Fix

It was easy

My Advice

Give this a try before committing to Apple's new device advice

My Problem

Headphone plug broke off in headphone jack of Chromebook. Fixed it because no sound would play through Chromebook speakers. Chromebook without sound is pretty much unusable in a 1:1 school.

My Fix

It worked as described.

My Advice

Be sure to watch the Instructions video on the website where you order the Gripstick. Yo . . .
