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

The mid 2012 MacBook Pro was failing to boot displaying a 'folder with a question mark' (and alternatively a 'no entry' symbol). We replaced the stock HDD with an SSD and the problem persisted, so the next thing we replaced was the SATA cable (there were visible wear marks)

Nexus 4 screen and tools arrived promptly and after following the repair video, the new screen works. Now I just need to get the software updated so the Google colored circles quit moving and the system boots up.

Keyboard replacement

My Fix

I used the guide to get down to the keyboard and a different video for the actual keyboard replacement. I couldn't get many of the rivets out (which exposed the screw holes) and I ended up gluing (epoxy) the keyboard in place on the rivets. It was a success, however!

My Problem

My iPhone 6 suddenly stopped charging. It lives in a Mophie case so the reasoning behind the non-charge was curious. The case charged just fine and I rarely if ever took it out of the case. So, the iPhone 6 (out of warranty and AppleCare expired) was taken to the Apple Store. I love Apple but, t . . .

My Problem

There was a problem with video that caused the laptop to freeze and reboot. Apple no longer covered the Early 2011 17" so I had to take charge of the repair.

My Fix

Thanks to iFixit I was able to remove the logic board properly and safely and send it to a shop for repairs.

My Advice

Don't give up on these older laptop . . .

My Problem

Spilt milk on my computer

My Fix

The repair went great. I had lost the sound after spilling some milk on my Macbook Air. I noticed the I/O had the sound chip on it and lucky for me I didn't have to replace the logic board. I am sure I saved myself hundreds of dollars and learned a lot about the Macbook Air . . .
