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

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.

My Problem

My hard drive had completely crashed, needed to replace.

My Fix

It was quick and easy, other than one hiccup in that my drive was a Seagate and I had ordered a Western Digital accidentally. However, iFixit was great about sending me the right drive, and I have sent back the prior one.

My Advice

It appears some people have problems with the temperature sensor. I found that by properly marking the wires, I had no issue reinstalling the heat sensor cable and having no issues with the fan. Again, felt the whole process was very easy and quick.

Also, to restore the drive with Mac OS X, luckily had been regularly backing up with Time Machine to a NAS, and so it was really easy to restore from a time machine image.

My Problem

Wanted to speed up my iMac performance. The RAM was already maxed, so the only thing left to do was upgrade the what's drive to an SSD.

My Fix

It was pretty smooth. Much easier than I thought it would be.

My Advice

I think it's worthwhile to upgrade the ram & SSD on your older Mac before going out and buying a new one. Plus, the new designs are not upgradeable like the older ones.

My Problem

I am just starting out in the repair business, I repair all sorts of electronics, mainly the repairs are either Mobile Devices, Laptops, Computers. IFIXIT.com has a lot of the tools that are required for repairing these devices.

My Fix

Repairs go a lot quicker with the right tools.

My Advice

Make sure you have the right tool(s)for the job you are preforming.

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.
