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?

I was super-freaked out to have to touch the battery connector and the logic board, but the guid . . .

Display was damaged—half of it would not respond to touch nor display any image.

My Fix

Slow at first, but good. The instructions are very well done.

My Advice

I read several posts of those that claimed to have done this in 15-20 minutes. I probably could have too, but being a first-time repair on an iPhone I wanted . . .

My Problem

The HDD is just too slow to load some applications. The disk read/write speed is only about 120 ~ 150 MBs and seems to be getting slower.

My Fix

The instruction pictures are very clear so I have no trouble going through it. Do it slowly and you don't make any mistake. After installing the SSD, the boot up t . . .

My Problem

Machine wouldn't charge, and the LED on my AC adapter didn't light up.

My Fix

The repair went well; I have worked on Mac notebooks a little bit so I was prepared for some of the idiosyncrasies. I took my time and thought that the repair guide was put together well.

My Advice

Be careful with the speaker connectors- th . . .

My Problem

My computer would not boot up.

My Fix

I just followed the instructions. It was surprisingly easier than expected, especially since there is no glue involved.

My Advice

I had to remove the screws from the new logic board twice due to not seeing a cable trapped under it. Be sure to get all cables out of the way before s . . .

My Problem

We had a bad hard drive in a 27 in iMac that needed to be replaced. It was a 2012 and had double sided adhesive strips securing the screen. So we watch your videos on how to remove the Display and replace the adhesive strips, then reinstall the display. That video was right on target. Great Repair . . .

My Problem

After 3 years, my battery wasn't holding a charge the way it used to. I previously ALWAYS had enough power to go into the evening. And I got some lint stuck in my headphone jack recently that was keeping me from using my headphones.

My Fix

Repair went great. It took an hour and a half from beginning to end . . .
