Heavy-Duty Suction Cups (Pair)

$14.95

Product code: IF145-023-2

Product Overview

Get a heavy-duty grip on heavy-duty glass.

  • Large glass panels rarely come with handles—use these suction cups to safely lift and remove glass from LCD screens.
  • Ideal for gaining entry into iMacs and glass-sheathed laptop displays.
  • For smaller displays, like those found in iPhones and iPods, check out our Small Suction Cup.

For years we struggled with finding a reliable source for quality suction cups, so we bit the bullet and made our own. Specially formulated rubber foot sticks stronger and longer.

My Problem

Needed to upgrade the SSD drive

My Fix

Great - The iMac runs like it is brand new

My Advice

Pricing and Shipping were hassle-free

My Problem

I needed more ram than my original 8 gb and wanted to stick in two 8 gb ram sticks

My Fix

The repair went great except for the fact that I didn't thoroughly plug in my screen and speaker connections.

My Advice

Check your connections before you tape the screen or it might go wrong and you'll have to reopen the screen

My Problem

Internal 1Tb hard drive developed a SMART failure and would no longer boot.

My Fix

After reading the guide several times, and making sure I had everything ready, I followed the instructions and successfully replaced with a 4 Tb drive.

Then reinstalled OS X.

My Advice

Remember, you can't read the guide too often!

Be careful when removing the screen data cables (those side clips are almost invisible).

My Problem

My Fix

My Advice

Be careful when removing the screen data cables.

My Problem

Cracked LCD

My Fix

Success: About 3.5 hours.

Followed 2 iFixit repair guides:

1) Steps 1 - 16 for 17 inch Gloss LCD replacement:

MacBook Pro 17" Unibody LCD Replacement

2) Steps 21+ for 15 inch Matte LCD replacement, for the grey bezel:

MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Mid 2010 Matte LCD Replacement

Remember, the 15 screen internals are different from the 17 when it comes to the other screen parts, so refer back to the 17 guide (or video below) once the bezel is off.

My Advice

Use this extra YouTube video for reference, as it's got instructions on putting back together again:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLwO1YV5...

However, use this video as a supplemental (e.g. on iPad). Generally follow the iFixit method for disassembly (NB. remove the battery connector, remove the black rubber gasket around the bezel, etc, no need to remove hinges as in video).

Video is more useful for when putting things back together.

Notes:

- I put the black rubber gasket back on first, and then the bezel.

- Putting back the Clutch Cover (step 17, guide 1) can be quite tricky; see on the video it says to put the cable on top of the hinge (of the left), so that the bottom can sit in the body. Have a look at the groves in it to see how they slide left into the screen body.

- My bezel reassembly needs more glue/work; it's not as flush as original.

My Problem

iMac was slowing down and discovered it had a hard drive reporting eminent failure. Replaced the HD with one I had on hand.

My Fix

Thanks to the guide from ifixit, this repair went smoother than expected. I had all of the appropriate screwdrivers and spudgers from a previous order, so I only needed the suction cups for this repair. All the tools worked beautifully. The suction cups made pulling off the glass super easy.

My Advice

The only real issue I had was the fact that the screws holding in the monitor are right next to those powerful magnets. This makes getting the screws in and out a tedious task. Long needle nose pliers are a must.

Also, I did not remove the connector in Step 6. It was not easy to get to, and I had plenty of room to work without disconnecting it.

My Problem

My early 2009 iMac was really lagging. I hated the ideas of buying a new one when most of the hardware was still in great shape. Therefore I decided to upgrade the hard drive to a solid state.

My Fix

Great! The performance has been fantastic and it really has given my computer and new life. Working slowly it took me about an hour and a half to replace the drive. The iFixit guide was very helpful.

My Advice

Make sure you have compressed air. When the LCD screen is removed it is a great opportunity to clean out some dust!

My Problem

The computer crashed and would not startup or restore. I suspected it was drive failure but could not be sure

My Fix

I followed the repair guide here - iMac Intel 20" EMC 2133 and 2210 Hard Drive Replacement by Walter Galen - slowly and methodically. The pics were a little different to what I was seeing but the guide referred to a later model so I figured it out OK. Thanks Walter!!

My Advice

Just take your time and don't be scared. I figured humans made these machines, so a human can fix them.

I made some mistakes and left out two small screws out that secure the data cable plug onto the logic board when I put everything back together but I don't think its going to disconnect itself unless I shake it really hard which is unlikely. I also managed to shear off one of the locator pins on the front glass. He's right - only pull it straight up and off. The magnets are really strong so its not easy to put back.

My Problem

My wonderful 2010 27 inch iMac would not power on

My Fix

An easy search on a possible problem led me to I fixit and YouTube videos. All I had to order was the correct power supply for my emc and suction cups and was ready to dig in to it. Just as the YouTube video sowed the repair was easy

My Advice

Recommend ifuxit for your iMac issues it will save you time and money

My Problem

Factory HD went bad a few years after purchase

My Fix

The repair guide really helped, although it was not entirely accurate. The innards of my iMac didn't match the photos provided but I still managed to successfully perform the swap using the kit purchased from iFixit. Has worked perfectly ever since.

My Advice

Definitely get a sectional tray for storing and organizing the multitude of tiny screws you'll have to remove. Also make sure to carefully and completely clean the back side of the clear plastic display cover. Luckily, it's easy to remove and re-clean with the suction cups since it's attached magnetically. It goes without saying but BACK UP EVERYTHING ALWAYS!
