Product Details

We know that doing the best repair requires the best tools. That's why we've spent the last few years looking for the best opening tool we could provide to our users. We've tried razor blades, spatulas, spikes, pins, picks, and many custom designed opening tools. iSesamo is the best opening tools we tried. Made in Italy, we have been providing these from Dotterpod since they were all handmade. Now popularized by iFixit, this tool is sought after by repair shops around the globe. In the hands of a repair professional, this opening tool will make short work of popping open even the most difficult iPod cases.

Crafted for one purpose. ¶ 

A thin sheet of springy steel, designed to slide easily between panels and into microscopic cracks. An expertly curved tip, perfected to get the right angle on electronic casing clips. And with a no-slip grip, this tool is much more effective and reliable than other case opening methods.

Double edged sword. ¶ 

Made from metal means it’s longer lasting than plastic opening tools, which rarely last for more than one repair. It can release the rusty or bound clips where plastic tools may have failed in the past. However, being made of metal also means the tool can and will scratch or mar softer materials like case plastic. It requires a steady hand to use properly, but does work best.

My Problem

My iphone 6 screen was broken and i bought from another seller and it appeared to be of poor quality so i decided to buy from ifixit and it went all well

My Fix

Smooth. I had the islack which works like a charm. Easy to open the iphone

My Advice

Buy from reliable sources like ifixit

My Problem

My daughter cracked her iPhone 5S screen while at college after only having the phone for about 5 months. I decided I would fix it myself while she was home for Christmas break. I also decided that while I was at it, I would fix her older iPhone 4S cracked screen and sell that phone to help pay for the parts for both phones.

My Fix

The parts fit perfectly and were of great quality. I was very pleased. The repair guides were very informative. The magnetic mat was well worth the purchase. It made keeping screws organized a breeze. Sure wish I had it a long time ago for other repair projects. The only hitch in the repair was that my daughter failed to tell me the vibrator was bad in her 4S. I ordered a new iPhone vibrator from iFixit and after the second tear down of the 4S, every function is working perfectly. The iPhone 5S repair went perfectly and she is very happy to have her phone with a perfect display again. My worry level of her accidentally cracking her iPhone screen is over. I can relax and know if an unfortunate incident occurs, that I can place an order to iFixit and follow their repair guides and have it back as-good-as new in no time.

My Advice

Buy the magnetic mat. The anti-static tray is also great to have for a place to put larger pieces that you don't want on the mat. Read through the repair guide a couple times to be familiar then take your time and work step-by-step and you will be successful.

My Problem

I was tasked with replacing the battery in 14 Ipad Gen 1's - That seemed easy enough, since I'd been repairing PC for Years.

My Fix

The Repair started out ok I received my tools, and went right to work, using the iSesamo Tool I opened the first ipad pretty easy, The only issue I have with the iSesamo Tool is that after the 4th Ipad the tool is really bent up by now and you have to keep trying to straighten it (alot). The Metal Spudger set are a most valuable tool set as are the spudgers, Thus making the job at hand go rather smoothly.

My Advice

The Biggest this is the screws THEY ARE NOR T5's They are T4's and That whomever is going to be doing ANY kind of work on an ipad 1 you better invest in the screen clips, after the 6 or 7th ipad I was able to save 4 to 6 clips which in my book is outstanding, just plan on replacing all 10. For the Price of the iSesamo Tool you should get 2 not 1.

My Problem

The charging port on my iPhone 5 was shorted.

My Fix

After looking at the repair guide for a while, I managed to open and fix the iPone for the first time in about an hour.

My Advice

Pay attention to how you remove the loudspeaker. That almost tripped me up while reinstalling.

My Problem

Wacko iPad decided to fly out of my hand. All went well for about 2 seconds, then it fell down a flight of concrete and steel stairs.

My Fix

All went as described. My only problem was the chassis was somewhat deformed at the corners, causing some difficulty fitting the bezel. Turned out okay though.

My Advice

Dry fit everything.

My Problem

The screen of iPad4-WiFi was broken into pieces.

My Fix

The most dirty job is to remove the broken front panel first. i used heat-gun (did not have a chance to try iopener) and iSasemo (is really useful to me). Be careful the scattered glass which can hurt your hands easily. The repair instruction is clear enough to follow. The only pity thing is that the home button doesn't work even after double checking the connection to logic board.

My Advice

The heat flow from heat gun may cause drain out for battery. Does anyone have the same experience?

My Problem

multiple devices any thing that comes my way i can open easier now

My Fix

the isesamo tool is the best bever i also like the plastic proding toold alot too

My Advice

worth buying these tools instead of plastic junk

My Problem

As all Kids, mine also love elektronics. But loving also means taking care. And taking care also means repairing them: themselves.

My Fix

It is not the first time we repaired an iPhone, but we realized last time, that good tools, are half the way.

My Advice

We use YouTube Videos for instruction. that is sufficient.

My Problem

I work for a Cell Phone repair company. This tool seemed optimal for the repairs I get on a daily basis.

My Fix

Went smooth as heck. Opens iphone 5's no problem. Got an iPad Mini? Now that baby is open. Need a replacement iPad 2 Digitizer? BAM iSesamopened!

My Advice

The flexibility is a little off to get used to for prying but overall the tool works perfectly for tablets and phones.

My Problem

Need a little help getting the bevel off a laptop lcd screen

My Fix

Replaced the screen on the laptop and is working just fine now.

My Advice

do it with care.
