Product Details

Locks are found on all types of devices and products, and in the time it took you to read this sentence, tens of thousands of keys have been lost across the United States. In the IT field these are a common tool for opening computer cases and racks with long lost keys. Also found in most master mechanics toolboxes, roadside help trucks, and home handymen’s toolboxes.

A tension wrench and 9 popular styles of picks and rakes, neatly wrapped in a fancy iFixit canvas tool roll. Even though this looks like part of a sweet Ninja kit, we strongly recommend you do not get caught out on the street at night wearing dark clothing carrying this. Local police and prosecutors do not like Ninjas.

We did some in-house testing at iFixit, and in the hands of inexperienced first time pickers, door locks and padlocks were popping open in 30 seconds to 3 minutes.

Check local laws before ordering. It is a federal crime to contract iFixit as your agent to deliver this item via the Postal Service for any non-professional purposes (note to criminals - use UPS or FedEx the preferred carrier of both drug traffickers and bank robbers). This product is intended only for sale to IT professionals, Automotive Repair professionals, and locksmiths.

My Problem

The volume button on my son's iPhone 3GS, being used as an iPod Touch, fell off. Being a 4 yrs old boy, he could only comprehend so much about how to change the volume on his apps.

My Fix

Using the smartphone repair kit from iFixit and the manual on the website and through the app, the repair went smoothly and easily.The kit had everything I needed to perform the operation, except a bit of glue for the case reassembly. The step-by-step instructions with pictures and diagrams helped a great deal. The process took about an hour to take apart and put back together because I had help from the 4 yrs old. He learned why not to touch super glue and hold his fingers together. (momma used solvent before it fully set) I would have taken a picture, but he ran off with the device to show the rest of the family that he could change the volume all by himself now.

My Advice

Keep the younger kids away from the project.

My Problem

It had a small problem but I did not want to drill out the cans lock so I purchased the pick set. They work very good.

My Fix

The repair went well

My Advice

Rather than drill out the lock get the pick set. Save a little money on replacing the lock.

My Problem

iPhone 5 Battery replacement

My Fix

great

My Advice

if you don't buy it you are doomed!

My Problem

These are great for taking apart the new Lenovo T440s.

My Fix

Repair went great and did not mar it up like the metal screwdriver did.

My Advice

Use the right tools.

My Problem

I had several old keyed padlocks from a long ago and decided to try and get them open!.. I'm slowly getting the hang of it, but this lock pick set is definitely the perfect set of tools!!

My Fix

So far I've been able to get a couple of the locks, but it's a work in progress!

My Advice

Take your time with the locks. Patience is definitely a virtue with this!

My Problem

Needed to replace screen on a MacBook Pro

My Fix

I had all the tools necessary to switch the cover and screen

My Advice

Nothing relevant

My Problem

Picked some locks :)

My Fix

Good! Picked a 7 pin lock :D

My Advice

Be patient, take it easy and go slow :)

My Problem

Hi, I'm Joe with the Fixers Collective.

It was my first time working on iPhones. I didn't even own one at the time.

My Fix

It was a good thing that the weather was cool here in NYC because, when the first person that i helped dropped an internal screw onto the plush rug, I was sweating profusely. Several of us Fixers got on our knees, noses to the rug. It looked like we were grazing. It sounds very funny now, but no one had presence of mind to take a photo at the time. Irving found the screw to everyone's relief and amazement.

It took a whole hour to do that first 5 with several back tracks: the battery connector didn't seat well at first; the case was partially open, but we (owner's boy friend and myself) were ultimately successful.

My Advice

I saw the benefit of your magnetic mat and several specialized tools.

It might be useful to have the splurgers made of a slightly stronger type of plastic as they have a tendency to distort quickly in use.

Work over the table, have another person at hand to hold down the phone when prying it open and to help keep loose metal parts in place (with a tooth pick) while getting that first screw into the battery connector- at least at first. Watching your videos was indispensable.

My Problem

My 3 year old AT&T iPhone 4 had a temperamental Home Button and a battery that had lost a lot of its capacity. I decided to replace the two components to extend the life of the iphone until the next generation is released (iPhone 5s? iPhone 6?)

My Fix

The repair was how-to story of what NOT to do. I took great care during assembly, but I wasn't careful enough. I didn't realize that while trying to separate the screen from the frame, I was pulling against the two ribbon cables. I ended up damaging the longer of the two cables which is responsible for the digitizer function. The damage either occurred during the separation or the re-assembly. Be absolutely sure that the longer cable is fed through all the way and not folded upon itself. Upon re-assembly I had a perfectly functioning Home Button and a new battery but a phone that had no digitizing function...essentially useless. I didn't have time to order a new screen so I picked up up on CraigsList that same day for $35...just to see if that was indeed the problem. It was. I reassembled, only to find that I had abused the cellular antenna connector. It wouldn't snap down on the logic board. Now I had a phone with a perfectly working Home Button, a strong battery, a restored digitizer screen...but no cell service. Argh! I ordered a replacement cellular antenna from ifixit.org which includes a new connector. It popped right in. Now all systems are go. However, during the dozen or so disassembles, I lost interest in being careful with maintaining which of the infinitesimally small screws went where. I have a handful left over. ;-) I concluded that I would never buy a used phone unless I was 100% sure that it had not been opened.

My Advice

When reinstalling the screen, triple check to make sure that the longer, thinner screen ribbon cable is pulled through fully and not folded onto itself.

My Problem

The device had been dropped, breaking the display/digitizer. The iPod has sentimental value so the owner asked me to attempt to repair it.

My Fix

I broke the first digitizer because I hadn't thoroughly cleaned the area where the glass sits. The second attempt was better and I got it together without too much problem.

My Advice

Make sure the digitizer cable is correctly folded back on itself otherwise it will interfere with the display seating correctly. Use enough stickum on the edges where the display assembly sits. Be very careful and don't force anything.
