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?

My Problem

I dropped my MacBook Pro and it made a big dent on the case and caused some of the keys to not work. I also ordered other parts like hard drive, memory and battery to make some upgrades.

My Fix

This is the first time I did a repair on a laptop and it was quite exciting and nerve wracking at the same time. . . .

My Problem

My original battery quit working -- not only would not hold a charge but would not even work when plugged in.

My Fix

The repair went great. Easy instructions.

My Advice

Consider buying the P-5 Pentalobe and T-5 Torx screwdrivers and the spudger from IFIXIT. I couldn't find Pentalobe drivers at my local Ace hardware. . . .

My Problem

Somehow my LCD screen had gotten broken. I wish I had some cool story, but I literally have no idea.

My Fix

I’ve never done anything like this, but I figured it was worth a $23 investment for a new LCD screen and two tools as opposed to spending several hundred dollars on a new GoPro. Worst case, I’d be . . .

My Problem

My 5S has been giving me battery problems for about 6-9 months and eventually I got tired of having to charge my phone almost every 2 hours. Sometimes my battery would drop suddenly (60 to 20% and other random disparities). My camera also stopped working around the same time due to "overheating" so . . .

Late 2011 MacBook Pro was consistently locking up and giving my the spinning color wheel. After doing plenty of research, I found that the hard drive cables in that specific model had known issues.

My Problem

DC input board replacement. Intermittent power drops from charger.

My Fix

Novice errors.

My Advice

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.
