iFixit iPod opening tools destroyed before job is done

iFixit iPod opening tools destroyed before job is done
The iPod opening tools included with a battery replacement are junk! The iPod case is tougher than the tools. Now I have two tools with their ends destroyed and the job partially finished.


"The iPod opening tools are intentionally made out of soft plastic so that they don't scratch your iPod. They *have* to be softer than the iPod, or they would scratch the case.

They do work, but you have to be careful when using them. You'll run into a stubborn iPod sometimes that really chews up the plastic tools, which I'd guess is what you have. We do sell metal spudgers, but I don't know if I'd recommend them for this application.

For more information, see this post discussing alternative iPod opening tools."
i used car feeler gauges to get in mine with no marks,but you will still need some new clips
i've found guitar picks work the best for anything - iPods, iPads, etc
