  1. Tools Best Practices, Metal Spudger: stap 1, afbeelding 1 van 2 Tools Best Practices, Metal Spudger: stap 1, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • The metal spudger is a fantastic tool, but it's also a tool of much debate. Here at iFixit, we tend to call on the metal spudger only when we need a member of the brute squad.

    • Use the metal spudger to:

    • Remove extra-stubborn plastic/metal casings, or scrape away tough adhesive.

    • Depress or lift stubborn release tabs.

    • Keep in mind:

    • The metal spudger is not electrostatic discharge (ESD) safe. Irresponsible use may result in electrical shock or permanent injury.

    • Poor use may permanently damage your device.

    • Do not use this tool on exposed or fragile internal components, batteries, or glass screens.

  2. Tools Best Practices, Plastic Opening Tool: stap 2, afbeelding 1 van 2 Tools Best Practices, Plastic Opening Tool: stap 2, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • The plastic opening tool comes in a few different styles, and is your go-to tool for removing screens and separating cases. It has a very thin non-destructive edge that gets in between small cracks easily.

    • Use the plastic opening tool to:

    • Lift zero insertion force (ZIF) tabs and disconnect cable connectors.

    • Pry open tightly sealed device cases.

    • Remove digitizers and glass screens.

    • Lift, cut, or remove tape, adhesive, and/or thermal paste.

  3. Tools Best Practices, Spudger: stap 3, afbeelding 1 van 2 Tools Best Practices, Spudger: stap 3, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • Your friendly neighborhood nylon spudger can do amazing things. With antistatic pointed and blunt tips, it’s a great all-around tool to use on internal components.

    • Use the spudger to:

    • Disconnect cable connectors.

    • Pry components free.

    • Aid in soldering.

    • Remove thermal paste, adhesive, or tape.

    • Be sure to list the appropriate tool in your guide. The heavy duty spudger is a more robust version of the standard spudger. They look similar, but one of these things is not like the other.

  4. Tools Best Practices, Tweezers: stap 4, afbeelding 1 van 2 Tools Best Practices, Tweezers: stap 4, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • With blunt or curved tip options, the ESD safe tweezers are a tricksy little tool. They're especially helpful if you have thick, hobbitsy, fingers.

    • Use tweezers to:

    • Remove loose screws or small components that are difficult to access.

    • Gently remove ribbon cables.

    • Peel heated panels after applying heat.

    • The angled and fine-tip tweezers have very sharp tips. Exercise caution around delicate ribbon cables and your fingers.

  5. Tools Best Practices, Opening Picks: stap 5, afbeelding 1 van 2 Tools Best Practices, Opening Picks: stap 5, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • Opening picks are an industry favorite for maintaining a separation between screens and cases, or for breaking up long sections of adhesive. Feel free to explore your options.

    • Use opening picks to:

    • Cut adhesive strips that secure screens.

    • Use as a placeholder to prevent large screens from receding back into the frame.

    • Scrape or remove adhesive or tape.

    • Apply or remove thermal paste.

  6. Tools Best Practices, Magnetic Project Mat: stap 6, afbeelding 1 van 2 Tools Best Practices, Magnetic Project Mat: stap 6, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • This handy mat can be your best friend during a replacement. Be sure to take advantage of the dry erase surface and keep track of your screws and steps along the way! You won't regret it.

    • The magnetic project mats are covered with a thin layer of plastic to create a dry erase surface. Do not remove this layer or peel the edges up.
