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 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.

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.
