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

How does one go about pronouncing 'Spudger' anyhow?

Pay close attention to how engaged the ribbon connector are before removal. It becomes super obvious. Trying to be too gentle leads to a computer that won’t restart.

My Problem

The phone could not hear me through the microphone, and the front-facing camera was broken. I took it to be repaired at Android phone repair shops, and lost $30 with no clear diagnosis except a vague indication that it could be the motherboard.

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 . . .
