This toolset cuts to the core of what it takes to open electronics of the modern era. A suction cup for screens, plastic opening tools for micro case seams, and 26 different screw bits for the myriad screw heads used in today’s industry.

Block Image

A great toolset in its own right, it works great if you have a whole slew of home electronic repairs to do, or if you only have one repair in mind and want a set that lasts. Except, of course, the blue plastic opening tools which are made from a soft plastic to prevent scratches on your shiny brick. Those should be considered single-use. Be sure to get extras if you need them.

This is the toolkit one step before our super popular Pro Tech Toolkit. That powerhouse will take care of whatever screw and clip based problem you throw at it. Check it out, and weigh your options. Goldilocks would be proud.

My Problem

Upgraded the HDD to SSD drive

My Fix

Very well. Easy replacement

My Advice

Wear your esd strap as their are a lot of components that can get damaged.

My Problem

My PS4 had been running very loudly for some time. It definitely sounded like a hair dryer. I had been keeping it a cabinet with a glass door that I left open when it was on. Sometimes we forgot to open the door. Recently, the PS4 has shut itself off due to overheating and does this frequently now. The final straw was when the fan made a loud, agonized sound and stopped.

Looking around on the web, it seemed pretty clear what the issue was.

My Fix

I followed the step-by-step instructions, and it went very well. Removing the power supply cable took quite a bit of force but everything else went smoothly. The existing fan had a lot of resistance--it would slow down and stop quickly when spinning. The replacement fan was much better.

I cleaned off the existing thermal paste and applied new paste following iFixit's instructions. The reassembly went much faster than the disassemble. I just followed the instructions in reverse order.

I fired up the PS4 in its new home in the open air-not in a cabinet, and it is running quietly and without error.

I have never done a repair like this before, but it was straightforward with the right tools and instructions.

My Advice

Do not put your PS4 in a cabinet. It needs ventilation.

Have an assistant in case you forgot to have everything at hand.

My Problem

At Office Depot, out tech department does all types of repairs and projects regarding ripping apart people's computers. My boyfriend happens to be one of them.

The tech depot is very limited on what tools they have in the store and are allowed to use. For a while my boyfriend, Ben, was bringing in his own personal ifixit kit to work.

Needless to say he got tired of bringing it back and forth.

I decided to take action.

The Office Depot tech department was gifted with its own personal ifixit kit that is now stored in the tech bench. The boys love it.

All of your tools are wicked nice. Ben has been using his kit at home to build his new computer he's been working on. Your stuff is fantastic.

Thanks for being awesome.

My Fix

No regrets! Everything is going well!

My Advice

Nope! Keep doing your thing, and we will keep buying your products.

My Problem

The fans on my MacbookPro had been running constantly due to some software that seemed to need 1 CPU to run constantly to check web pages. After finally figuring out which software to trash and reducing use of the fan, the wear and tear of this bad software took its toll and eventually the fans started to periodically make a grinding noise.

My Fix

The directions from iFixit were great, the parts arrived quickly and it took about 30 minutes to complete the repair. No problems were encountered.

My Advice

Follow the directions and be careful not to strip the screws when reinstalling them

My Problem

I took our MacBook apart down to the fan to blow out the dust and clean it.

My Fix

3 hours

My Advice

1)Be very careful when you unplug the keyboard top and then the fan and sensors. 2)Use a muffin pan to keep the screws straight.

My Problem

The Lightning connector stopped working.

My Fix

Unscrewing and keeping track of all the tiny screws was kinda nerve wracking , but i made it through!

My Advice

Keep track of your parts!

My Problem

se rompio el touch

My Fix

dificil ya que tuve que quitar los pedasitos de cristal

My Advice

usar herramientas ifixit para que sea mas sencillo la reparacion

My Problem

battery didn't work anymore. got a new one, realized, that the old one has almost doubled its size - thankfully, there wasn't anything else destroyed.

My Fix

battery was replaced in no time - was a bit disappointed that it only took a few minutes as I was prepared to work for half an hour or so. well the macbook is back in the "wireless-business"...

My Advice

open your device from time to time or you get full of dust...

My Problem

My computer would no longer charge, but the charger was working in other computers.

My Fix

I was originally told it was the logic board, which would have costs $100s more than just the left I/O board. It was an extremely easy repair when you follow the step by step guide.

My Advice

Don't be afraid of someone telling you that you will mess something up. I am not tech savvy at all and it was extremely simple for me to complete!

My Problem

The dreaded red letters on Disk Utility..."This hard drive is failing. Back up as much as you can and then run in circles screaming for help!"

My Fix

Easy peasy...just like the pictures. My stubby fingers and 60 year old eyes were no help but the tools worked great!

My Advice

Some advertising slogan says "Just do it!" Why not? Oh, and Carbon Copy Cloner.
