Recht op reparatie

Onderdelen & Gereedschap

We Have the Right to Repair Everything We Own

It’s high time we demand the right to open, tinker with, and repair everything we own.

We have the right to:

Fix our own things or choose which service shop to use

Manuals and diagnostic tools the dealers use

Unlock and jailbreak the software on our devices

Would you buy a car if it was illegal to replace the tires?


Would you buy a bike if you couldn’t fix the chain?

Manufacturers are trying to shut down independent repair shops.

Ze zeggen dat gebruiks- en reparatiehandleiding intellectueel bezit zijn. Gelukkig zijn niet alle bedrijven zo. Bevriende ondernemingen, zoals Dell en Patagonia, zijn reparatievriendelijk. Help ons bij het documenteren van hulpmiddelen voor bedrijven die dat niet zin.

You bought it. You own it.

You bought it. You own it.

Once you’ve paid money for a product, the manufacturer shouldn’t be able to dictate how you use it—it’s yours. Ownership means you should be able to open, hack, repair, upgrade, or tie bells on it.

But it’s common practice to refuse to make parts, tools, and repair information available to consumers and small repair shops. Apple even created a special screw specifically to make it hard to repair the iPhone.

If you want to make a custom wood frame for your iPod, go for it!

Manufacturers have created a monopoly on repair.


When there's only one repair shop around, prices go up and quality goes down. Companies have every incentive to drive up prices and drive down competition. Don’t let them.


Een leger aan reparateurs staat klaar om de leegte op te vullen. Alles wat ze nodig hebben, is een beetje hulp.

Companies don’t want you to get their products fixed.

It took a lawsuit to force Apple to offer a battery replacement program. Many companies, including Apple, refuse to sell replacement parts to independent shops. That just isn’t right.

manufacturers keep repair codes secret

Manufacturers keep repair codes secret.

Independent repair technicians need the same information that the manufacturer repair shops have. The Ford dealership has access to diagnostic codes that your neighborhood mechanic needs.

But those codes are often proprietary, and manufacturers limit access to the tools that can read them. That’s why Massachusetts passed Automobile Owners’ Right to Repair laws in 2012, and why groups such as AAA, Autozone, and Valvoline are pushing for similar legislation.

Consumers’ Bill of Rights

Om het recht op reparatie in de handen van de consument te houden, hebben we echte juridische verandering nodig. Het is tijd om een wetsvoorstel te manifesteren die het recht van consumenten vastlegt.

We hebben het recht

to open everything we own

to modify and repair our things

to unlock and jailbreak the software in our electronics

We must have access

to repair information

to products that can be repaired

to reasonably-priced, independent repair shops
