Broken Headphones

Jeremy Ackmn -

My Problem

A small piece of headphones broke off in the headphone jack of ipad. A problem we encounter multiple times a year.

My Fix

Very well

My Advice

This is a problem we run into several times a year. I came to iFixit looking for a new option to remove the broken part. I came across the Gripstick and felt like it would be worth a shot. It took about 5 minutes of working with the tool to get a feel for how it works, but after that it works exactly as expected.
