Cell Phone Tools
Cell phone tools help you fix minor issues with your own devices or help others replace screens, covers, and other components. Staples® carries a range of tools for repairing smartphones, from small screwdrivers to complete kits for professionals.
Consider the Types of Cell Phone Tools You Need Different tools assist with addressing different parts of a phone. Simple screwdrivers help you remove tiny screws for replacing screens. Other options feature a slim, flat design that detaches one side of the phone from the other without damaging the exterior of the case. Spudgers help you remove connectors inside the device. Specially designed suction cups let users lift screens without touching them and provide additional support that protects against drops. Heat guns loosen adhesives inside the devices for easier removal and replacement. Tweezers with sharp points simplify grabbing small power buttons and internal cables.
Additional Components for Cell Phone Tools In addition to cell phone repair tools, a complete setup should contain other components. Microfiber cloths help you remove residues from adhesives, fingerprints, and natural oils from your skin after completing repairs. Heat-resistant gloves protect your skin when using soldering or heating parts. A thermometer ensures proper heat levels inside rebuilt devices, protecting against damage due to overheating. Magnifying glasses or stands make small, internal parts easily visible. Consider adding SIM card picks that help you remove them without causing damage to the surrounding area. Small, soft-bristled brushes remove dirt and debris that build up inside the cell phone and around the casing.
What Type of Cell Phone Tools Are Sold in Kits? Kits typically combine a selection of cell phone repair tools so you have whatever you might need on hand. Consider sets with screwdriver bits in various sizes and shapes for working on devices from different manufacturers. Large tool kits may include bits, screwdrivers, opening tools, and spudgers, providing nearly everything necessary for minor repairs.
What Materials Comprise Cell Phone Tools? Many tools for opening the bodies or cases of cell phones come in plastic. Others come in metal that withstand frequent use. Most kits include screwdrivers and openers with plastic handles and metal ends for increased durability. Those planning on repairing several phones or opening a shop should consider metal options that stand up to repeated, daily use.
Are Meters a Requirement for Cell Phone Tools? A multimeter lets you test components before replacing them, which minimizes unnecessary repairs. If you're planning on providing repairs on all types of cell phones, multimeters provide an effective option for helping customers see exactly what's wrong with a device. If you're doing simple repairs like batteries or replacing broken screens, meters aren't always necessary.
Are There Any Additional Cell Phone Tools Available? Additional tools include anti-static strips and bands that protect the components from built-up electricity. For complete cell phone repair, a soldering gun for use on small parts ensures users can perform most reconnections. Adding stands to your kit that hold the soldering gun, lights, and phone offers added stability.
