This is the set that spawned the repair revolution. We have honed its contents to be both your everyday driver set and your go-to resource for all the security bits needed to open consumer electronics.
Each bit resides in a removable soft plastic block with five friends. The driver body is machined from a single piece of aluminum, with a ball bearing mounted swivel top. The flexible shaft is great for stereo work or other large electronics where all the screws aren’t on the surface. The drive adapter lets you use these specialty bits with any standard ¼” driver handle or most power tools.
When it comes to precision bit sets, there is no better kit. If you want something that looks as elegant as it performs, look no further than the wooden case for the 54 Bit Driver Kit. This case is emblazoned with the Fixers Fist, reminding all the world that we have the right to open our electronics. We believe that repair is noble, and so should you.

thought i had a bad power supply because iMac had a problem turning on
the repair went well 1 hour start to finish. wish i would have read a few more forums turned out it is the button after all according to apple my entire housing needs to be replaced in order to fix this. but i read a forum and as stupid as it sounds pick iMac up turn it upside down then touch the power button and it turns on no problem ugggghhh
read forums. bottom line although the parts worked and the install went well. i really didn't need a power supply after all and i don't want to take my iMac apart again to send it back if they would take it back in the first place

I coul not find a small enough torx bit to transfer the security pins in an old hard drive to a new one. This 54 set is perfect for any electronic repair work that I need to do.
Everything went smooth.
If you have to deal with small screws ou should get this set. It covers pretty much all of your bases.

Replaced digitizer on my kid's Toshiba Kids Tablet.
Went well, considering I used less than decent tools from radio shack. Unacceptable.
Buy your tools from ifixit before you need them. When I ordered a digitizer I thought I ordered one that came with the necessary tools but that wasn't the case. I ran out to radio shack to get a cell phone kit. The pry tools were soft, the driver tips were rough under magnification and there was thin plastic from the molds still attached to the handles--Junk. For a layman, I'm pretty particular about my tools, whether it be mechanics, woodworking or power tools. I like quality tools. Figuring I'll be doing more of these repairs rather than fewer, I started researching for a decent set. Ifixit tools came highly recommended from a number of sources, so I put in an order. They are quality for sure, and I'm prepared no matter what future problems arise. It was also nice to discover the teardown guides and videos, as well as the company's mission to encorage repair instead of disposal.

No problems. Followed your video instructions. Did take long after battery arrived.
Make sure you put screws in a secure container. They are very small.

The motherboard of my PS3 fried. So, I ordered a PS3 off of Ebay with a broken disc drive and swapped the boards.
Things went smoothly. Absolutely no issues.
Use the right tool for the job. Buy a good set the first time and never have to worry about it again.

I put the laptop in a bag that had some sand vestiges on it (without realizing), some of it got on the keyboard. At first I tried to clean it, but it didn't go so well - had to end up changing the keyboard.
Went well, took a little longer than other reports I saw. Maybe 5h total.
When putting the speaker back (under the optical drive), make sure it's really tight. First time I opened the laptop it wasn't 100%, and it was interfering with the drive (blocking DVDs). Had to open it again and in the end worked. I didn't see much difference in the two attempts, so I'm guessing the difference it REALLY small.

After about five years of heavy use on my Mid-2010 MacBook Pro, the battery had become disfigured, warping my trackpad along with it. Also, my computer was acting very sluggish.
After I received my iFixit delivery, I replaced my RAM and my battery using the 54 Bit Driver Kit and iFixit's easy guides. Everything went perfect. It only took a few minutes, and my MacBook was back up and running.
iFixit has great products and great repair guides. If you think tinkering with your laptop is too difficult and only professional geeks can fix it, then you should rethink your philosophy because it's really easy with the right tools and the right guide, and you can find both here at iFixit.

Liquid damage on keyboard
With the ifixit teardown guide and the tools i bought on this website, the replacement was super easy and efficient! Finished without a hitch!
Highly recommending ifixit tools and teardown instructions, read before you start fixing! Good luck!

Trackpad was acting cray-zay - cursor would jitter and jump around, open mission control (3 finger swipe gesture), randomly scroll (2 finger gesture) etc.
Confirmed it was only the trackpad by using a mouse and turning the trackpad off. No known spills and the battery wasn't bloated.
Easy peasy. Took ~30-40 minutes to replace the trackpad, dust out the inside, swap in a SSD, and pop some new ram in. Machine is like new.
Check the clicking action on your trackpad once you have it screwed in place and before you reassemble anything. There's an adjustment torx screw on the front facing underside of the trackpad. In my case, the trackpad was just flopping around not clicking and I had to tigten the adjustment screw a bit.

Like all things seem to, my mba's battery had bit the dirt. In fact, the battery had been giving me "Service Battery Now" messages for about a year before I did anything for it. I'm glad that I did; people speaking in the third person kinda creep me out!
-buy a replacement battery
-buy necessary tools for replacement
-tell you all about it
Getting the whole bit set was definitely overkill, but now I'm prepared for most any type of computer repair. Phillips' heads, pentalobes, hex - everything!
As for the laptop itself, the rear panel was simple enough to remove and the battery was only connected to the system by a single cable. Making things even easier was a nice little pull-tab on the connector that kept me from needing to use any pliers (I have big hands) that would put undue strain on the components. The new battery fell right into place! Some 12 screws (or so) later, I was back in business. My battery life has increased from ~2Hr30min @ max charge to a total battery life closer to 7Hr. Whoo!
Let's just say that GEICO would have something so say about this procedure.
Make sure that you have a clean surface to work on and have a means by which you can keep track of your hardware. The screws are tiny!
Of note: The screws enter the back panel at funny angles to allow for the nice tapers that you see all around the laptop. Keep that in mind when reattaching the panel.
(Good luck! You won't need it.)
