iFixit Opening Tool
The primary tool for opening everything
- Custom-designed handle provides no-slip opening power with plenty of grip.
- Tough-yet-soft material prys open the tightest cracks, but won't scratch or mar your workpiece.
- Two tips provide alternate opening options: Wedge for breaching, and Hook for lifting and levering.
