Features

Safely poke and pry just about anything.

A spudger is a tough antistatic tool that can be used for a variety of purposes when repairing electronic devices. The 5" tool is made of nylon and has one flat end and one pointed end. The pliable and antistatic properties make it ideal for working around sensitive electronic components without fear of shocking or scratching them.

The pointed flat side can be used to disconnect connectors, remove thermal paste from a heat sink, pry off components, aid in soldering, or just to unscrew a MacBook's battery. The pointed end of the spudger can be used to connect/disconnect components, hold objects for soldering, or poke something that requires poking. The tool also includes a notch for hooking wires.

We find this spudger to be the perfect size for most repairs. However, when you need a tougher prying/poking tool, we also carry our Heavy Duty Spudger, a more robust version of this tool. This product is included in a lot of our toolkits, but it's especially helpful in the Classic Pro Tech Toolkit and Soldering Workstation.

Compatible with Apple's "Black Stick", Apple part number 922-5065

My Problem

Faulty rear facing microphone.

My Fix

The repair was time consuming but the detailed instructions we excellent and it went off without a hitch. The only part that was a little painful was getting the adhesive out from under the battery. I ended up using a hair dryer to soften the adhesive.

My Problem

I was reading in the hot tub and accidentally dunked my Kindle (named 'Kenny' for reasons that won't be enumerated here). After a week in rice, I tried to turn him on, and I found that I could get him to work only when plugged in and charging, but the charge indicator never got above 2%. Hoping that . . .

My Problem

Since three months, my Macbook Pro (mid 2010) started to make weird noises. It was like if you throw a piece of metal in a fan non stop. I really thought something was broken inside. The sound came from the left side of my Macbook pro. I deleted the Ram, I closed my Macbook pro for hours, I reset th . . .

Use the correct sized screwdriver! I was using a 00 Phillips head but it was slightly too big, and the threads broke on the head of the screwdriver. A 000 . . .

My Problem

Broken subwoofer

My Fix

Fine

My Advice

You can do the repair without disconnecting the WIFI/Camera/... connector. The connector does not easily come out and I did not want to break it.

My Problem

My original battery had died and my computer was running extremely slow to the point it was almost inoperable for me to do work.

My Fix

Well. But I did not use your manual entirely. I also followed a video on YouTube from MacSales.

My Advice

Provide video instructions if you don't already.

My Problem

I banged my laptop pretty good and I got a 1 1/2" wide black vertical band on my screen. I could tell it was a screen issue not a board issue because if I twisted the screen the band went away when I forced a connection. I had three options... put it in the shop and pay knuckleheads to repair it i . . .

My Problem

One day i turned on my XBOX that i've had for 2 years and it was at the grey setup screen.

My WIFI had stopped working in my XBOX for over a year but i've used a hard wired connection to get on live and play online games.

Once my XBOX would get to the network tab on the setup screen it would ask i . . .

My Problem

I had replaced my hard drive last year, and now this year, it was like playing russian roulette as to whether my computer would turn on or would I just get this icon with a file folder with a question mark on it. I was able to get it to turn on once and then I quickly backed up on my external hard . . .
