Product Overview

Four times the brawn.

  • Any fixer knows that moment when you're stuck needing that one tool for the job—be prepared for the moment before it hits, with our assortment of four sturdy metal spudgers.
  • Easy-grip handles of just the right length for comfort and leverage.
  • Just the right amount of spring to pop out components and pry up against sticky adhesive.

Kit Contents:

  • Classic Metal Spudger - the tried and true original
  • Single Flat - with an extra long blade, great for iPad batteries
  • Small Pointed - reinforced and thick on both ends, good for scraping
  • Classic Wide - wide and slightly curved with rounded and pointed ends
  • Fitted Pouch - flexible plastic tool roll to keep your spudgers at the ready

Be sure to exercise caution when using these tools. With their great strength comes the potential to scratch or otherwise damage components that might be better served with plastic tools such as a spudger or plastic opening tool.

My Problem

I used the Jimmy and Metal Spudger Set to remove the Glass from a Samsung S3.

My Fix

unfortunately the Cracks in the glass where all the way through the LCD, the the tools worked great. The Jimmy as used almost exclusively.

My Advice

Humm, well if your glass is very shattered take your time to get all the center glass off, it can be done without damaging the LCD.

My Problem

Wanted to speed up my iMac performance. The RAM was already maxed, so the only thing left to do was upgrade the what's drive to an SSD.

My Fix

It was pretty smooth. Much easier than I thought it would be.

My Advice

I think it's worthwhile to upgrade the ram & SSD on your older Mac before going out and buying a new one. Plus, the new designs are not upgradeable like the older ones.

My Problem

Friend needed new screen assembly replacement

My Fix

Followed the directions, warning stated " not for the faint of heart"!

So iread it over and over, it was dificult had a question ifixit answered within 15 minutes.

So pleased perfect results, so happy and productive and now i have some experience with one of the most dificult jobs!

My Advice

Read instructions carefully, have the right tools you will get it right in no time.

My Problem

iPod Nano Gen 5 was not working. Suspected the battery died.

My Fix

Methodically & carefully followed the guide and comments at the bottom of the guide along with suggestions in the Click-Wheel Guide.

Used a number of additional tools to expedite.

Replacement of battery and reassembly completed successfully.

My Advice

See separate e-mail (to Annette Fuller at iFixit) with Step-by-Step comments. You are welcome to publish all or parts of the comments.

My Problem

Lack of anger mgt. Threw s5 at wall, wall won!

My Fix

Way faster than I expected.

My Advice

magnifying glasses and plenty of white light. Watch several videos there are several ways to skin a samsung, I used parts of all the ones I watched.

My Problem

iPad repair

My Fix

Got these just in time for my iPad repair. Made the job MUCH easier!

My Advice

Not a must have,but very close.

My Problem

Simple screen replacement. I watch videos and look at teardowns to prepare for those little things smartphones are so full of. I replaced the screen because it was cracked (bought it that way). No display but the soft-keys did light up.

My Fix

The repair went fine. I had to salvage the frame. Tedious work but still not a big problem.

My Advice

Watch those volume keys!! None of the videos or tear-downs mention that they can be damaged so very easily.... none of the ones I watched before. ONE of the ones I watched afterward did.. I would advise anyone doing a repair that requires opening the phone where the buttons are soldered to the board to be very mindful of them. I don't have a p owerful enough magnifying glass to be sure but it looks like there are thin flex cables inside the button itself. Put the edge of the system board into the frame first.. Better yet, buy your new display with the frame already installed. Avoid the head slamming moment when you realize the buttons are mucked up.

My Problem

I'm hard on phones and iPads. I can't even wear a watch. It ends up scratched, dented or in pieces within 6 months.

My Fix

It's the second time for the iPad mini digitizer so it was much easier. First time for the phone and that was simple too.

My Advice

The one recommendation I have is read the step by step instructions thouroughly at least once or twice before you do anything. It's good waay to prevent overlooking something or doing it out of sequence. I've avoided a few big self induced problems that way.

My Problem

The WiFi on my wife's iPad 1 suddenly died. No Wifi signal and no access points showed at all. I researched the repair and found a possible solution on the iFixit website, so I decided to give it a try and order the WiFi/Charging port part. I also learned that the display clips frequently break when opening the iPad, so I ordered a set and the Metal Spudger set too.

My Fix

I followed the repair guide and all-in-all, the repair went pretty smoothly. The disassembly went without a hitch but about half the display clips broke. I was just very careful not to crack the digitizer glass. During reassembly, one of the cable clips came off and the digitizer cable was not making a good connection and operated intermittently. I found another hint to slip a piece of mylar between the connector and cable and VOILA! Everything worked great. Thanks for the great guides, parts, and tools. The parts arrived VERY quickly too!!! Great service.

My Advice

Be careful with the cable clips.

My Problem

Need to replace my existing battery pack. It got bulky and blocked my trackpad to function properly.

My Fix

The repair was great. Easy to follow instruction from ifixit was no hassle. Only took me 10-15 mins to fix my mac and works like a Pro.

My Advice

Everything was perfect.
