Notes:

The classic "antenna" style magnetic pickup tool. Includes cover that shields magnetic force from sides of magnetic tip, making it easier to feed through tight passages without sticking to other ferrous metals on the way down.

Removable pocket clip, rubberized black handle.

New

Lifetime Manufacturer Warranty

Notes:

Of the non-extending type, this USA made machined aluminum handled magnetic pickup tool is great for precision use.

We only use the extending feature of our other pickup tool when working outside on cars or bigger tasks. For at the workbench, we prefer this little guy. The compact size, knurled handle, powerful magnet, and handy pocket clip mean business.

My Problem

Needed to remove and destroy a hard drive for personal data protection prior to decommissioning and recycling an iMac.

My Fix

Repair went fine. Recommended tools and online photo step by step guide was spot-on.

My Advice

Don't drop your tiny T6 tool on a hard surface. I did and it bent. I was able to make it serviceable and finish the repair by grinding it down to get back to virgin "bit" area, but really need a new bit now. The 54 Bit Driver Kit is worth every penny. Use the flex cable attachment as a "T" bar in the top of the screwdriver handle to get needed removal torque effortlessly.

My Problem

I repair my own and friends' and clients' computers, I needed to stock up on tools and supplies.

My Fix

To quote Al Green's song: 'How can you mend a broken heart?" These tools didn't do it...

My Advice

Yea. Don't ask a wiseacre like me for advice, I'll tell you to wear clean underwear in case you get in an accident.

My Problem

I splashed the tiniest splash of hard cider from a bottle I almost knocked over but grabbed at the last moment. The laptop seemed fine... until about 12 hours later, when it ran out of battery. Dead, dead.

My Fix

I got the clue it might be the MagSafe board from a few blog posts here and there, I took the whole thing apart using ifixit.com's excellent slideshow how-tos; I gave every bit of the circuit boards a toothbrush bath in rubbing alcohol; I swapped out the MagSafe board... it's alive! Probably saved me $600. And while I was swapping the drives between this and my older laptop, I accidentally fixed that one's overheating problem! (I'll be ordering a new internal AirPort card soon). Thanks, IFIXIT! I fixed it!

My Advice

Always use a sippy cup. Always.

My Problem

My iPhone 5 Battery had a mind of its own and drove me crazy with the sudden shut downs and incorrect energy readings. It was time to get rid of the dang thing.

My Fix

Replacing the battery couldn't have been easier with the step-by-step guidelines. The guidelines did mention that it could be difficult to pull out the old battery. iFixit must've known that my old battery loved driving me crazy and would take its one last chance to do so.

My Advice

A tiny connector that looked like button snap disconnected while I was prying out the old battery. It was easy to reconnect, but wasn't something the guidelines had mentioned.

My Problem

The Apple iPhone and MacBook Pro both make it dificult for the user to replace the battery.

My Fix

I started with the iPhone 5 battery replacement. The iFitIt instructions were very clear for the tasks. I used the iFitIt iPhone 5 battery kit with tools that worked fine. Do to my clumsiness I lost one of the small internal screws. A magnetic screw driver would have helped here. Also the screws are so small, a magnetic work pad is a great help. So, I purchased several professional tools from iFitIt including the magnetic project pad and screw driver kits. When I inspected the drivers, none had any magnetic charge for controlling small screws. I purchased a tool magnetized / demagnetizer tool that did the trick. With better tools and a plan I replaced the MacBook battery without issue.

My Advice

Make sure you have a large clean work area. Small screws can be lost if dropped or popped out during disassembly. Magnetic tools and project pad are a must.

My Problem

working for a elementary school with kids using laptops and headphones i always get broken connectors in the headphone jack.

I needed a way to remove the broken end of the headphone connector without taking the whole computer apart. I bought the tweezers set to accomplish this task and they fit nicely in the jack and removed the broken piece in minutes.

My Fix

repair took under one minute

My Advice

saves a lot of time to remove the connector instead of taking the whole computer apart.

My Problem

il était cassé

My Fix

très bien

My Advice

néant

My Problem

make peoples day

My Fix

very good

My Advice

try it your self or bring it to someone that can do it for less than half of the price of the manufacture cost

My Problem

I bought my wife a used iMac that needed some bits and pieces. Hoping that it was the power supply and not the dreaded logic board, I ordered your power supply with overnight shipping. As promised, it was delivered early the next day and came in great shape.

Unfortunately, it was the wrong part for what the computer needs so essentially it's just $150 that I could have put towards the logic board. Worth a shot.

My Fix

Process was fine, I had the computer open already and the piece went in and back out in minutes.

My Advice

If you think it's the power supply, it's not...it's the logic board :(

My Problem

Dead Hard drive- would not boot up.

My Fix

I prepped a large corner desk with a 3 sections of flat shirts and bubble wrap for the glass/bezel/LCD, got a sticky pad and some tape (for homemade blister packs with step # written on them).

My Advice

I did not have a T6 bit, so I was unable to remove the Display connector (I did try with 2 tiny flatheads, but gave up when I mangled them).

Separate the screws by step, I taped the screws from each step onto separate sticky notes, labeled with the step number to keep them organized.

So I did the repair w/o the LCD removed, and had a friend hold it up while I replaced the HDD and reconnected the LCD power.

The magnetizer was a huge help with guiding the screws in.

Make sure to have a can of compressed air- anything trapped between the screen and the glass will be visible. Fortunately, the glass is _really_ easy to remove with the suction cups.
