If you have ever tuned in to any of our How-to Repair Guides, you have probably heard us mention the MAG MAT repair tool. It’s generally presented as an optional tool for iPhone repair or iPad repair. And yes, it is optional. It is also highly recommended. It is a really sweet organizational tool to integrate into your iPhone or iPad repair toolbox.

What is MAG MAT, anyways? Simple. MAG MAT is an innovative way to keep your screws organized and separated. Why would you require such a tool?

Come on. Those screws are so itsy-bitsy. It’s no surprise that you might occasionally lose grip on one. And after it slips away, you’re forced to get on your hands and knees to discover where that little sucker went. Annoying, right? Also, it’s not time efficient. So, if you’re always losing screws during your iPhone repairs, iPad repairs, or iPod Touch repairs, MAG MAT could be incredibly useful to you.

Okay, maybe you have the hand stability and dexterity of a surgeon. Good for you. But can you seriously tell me that you remember where each and every screw goes during the repair process? If so, you have not only been blessed with surgeon hands, but also, a photographic memory. Again...good for you.

If you, however, are not genetically gifted with surgeon abilities and photographic memory powers, MAG MAT may be for you. Its multi-pole magnetization method provides maximum holding power and keeps the screws securely in place. Plus, the color-coded, step-by-step instructions help you to disassemble and reassemble your device with ease.

MAG MAT is available for the following devices: iPhone 3G/S, iPhone 4 GSM, iPhone 4 CDMA, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad1, iPad 2 and iPod Touch 4. You can purchase MAG MAT for individual devices or you can buy a set with MAG MATs for all devices.

Stay organized. Be efficient. Remain on top of your repair game.
