Precision Screw Extractor Set

$19.95

Product code: IF145-118-1

Product Overview

Extract tough stripped screws without damaging the device.

  • Safely remove stripped screws and replace the age-old practice of coating the screw-riddled device with wax and feathers and hurling it into the sun.
  • We know how annoying stripped screws can be. Before you resort to the rotary tool or super glue, give these little guys a try.
  • Hardened bits with 4 sharp points for gripping what's left of the screwhead safely.
  • Extractor tips are double-sided and reversible:
    • 3 drivers have the same size bits on each end, and 1 driver has different sizes on each end—a total of 5 different bits.
  • Anodized machined aluminum handles with swivel tops and pocket clips.
  • Made in USA.

Please Note:

This tool requires some mechanical aptitude and careful feel. If you stripped a screw while carefully using the correct type of driver the first time, it is possible you will not be successful with this tool. Screws that are cross-threaded, jammed, or glued in place will be very difficult to remove with any tool. Our Screw Extracting Pliers are easier to use, but will not grip recessed screws.

My Problem

I decided my new Macbook Pro needed a new Solid State Drive. Since I was going to be inside the case anyway I decided to put in a Data Doubler from OWC. A Data Doubler basically is used to replace your optical drive with a hard drive or SSD. The SSD upgrade went off without a hitch. The Data Double not so much. I used the wrong screwdriver to try to get the screws out of the DVD drive and stripped out the heads of two of the screws holding in the drive. I realized I should not have used a screwdriver with replaceable tips. This shank of the screwdriver hits the case of the drive. This causes the screwdriver to be tipped out of the screw head just a little. The screws actually had a little thread locking compound on them that also made the screws hard to remove. This caused me to strip the screws.

My Fix

The repair went really well. I ordered the screw extractor kit from iFixit, it showed up a couple of days later and with a little pressure and the right screw extractor the screws came out with no problem. I now have a Macbook with a 500GB SSD and a 1TB HDD.

My Advice

Use the right tool for the job. I know, your father probably told you this a 1000 times when you were helping rebuild the small block Chevy engine in the garage, but it is also true for electronics repairs. The moral of this story is. Listen to your dad when he talks about tools and always look on iFixit when you need the right tool.

Sorry, I didn't take any pictures, but any of the Macbook Pro guides on this site has tons of great pictures.
