Apple Nylon Probe Tool

aka. Apple Black Stick 922-5065


This Non-Metal tool is suitable for use around Electrostatic Discharge Sensitive (ESD) items.

Superior strength glass-filled nylon makes this a long lasting and durable tool. Hygroscopic nylon will dissipate electrostatic charges after you handle this tool for a few minutes with bare hands or dip into a topical antistatic solution before using.

Often referred to as the "black stick," This is the same tool used by Apple technicians to aid in the disassembly of iBooks, PowerBooks, MacBooks, iPods and iPhones without damaging or scratching any other component. Also can be used in laptops, mobile phones, and any other electronic device.

Warranty: Because they are nylon and the edge wears from use, these tools have a limited lifetime and are not covered by any warranty.

  • The "Black Stick" opens Apple iPhone and iPods, Mac Laptops and Desktops as well as other electronic devices.

Rating: 4/5 Spudger looks awesome... December 17, 2014 ...but I haven't implemented it yet, probably owing to my fear of getting an infection by losing control of the little dealybobber while trying to open the aluminum case of my defunct backup drive. No, wait! That happened last year with a tiny screwdriver and a power supply I had no business trying to pry apart. Cost me deep in the purse, it did, to get that subcutaneous disturbance eradicated! But I promise to be more careful with the carefully designed and elegant Black Nylon Probe, which looks as if it would be equally at home in your workshop or on the battlefield. Either way, I like the fact that after being handled for several minutes, it carries little or no static electricity which could, like, totally mess up your computer's components. It also boasts a variety of surfaces - flat, notch, and point – to handle different assignments.. And that's why we use this handy little implement. Let's hear it for the Spudger. Hooray!!

Rating: 5/5 A Tool You've Gotta Have November 13, 2014 This is a tool you've gotta have if you're swapping out components in a <2014 Mac Mini. It made child's play out of disconnecting a host of teensy tiny circuit board connectors, and any spudger bigger than this simply won't work as well for that purpose. For the price and functionality of this spudger it's simply a no-brainer "must have." Period. End of story. If you don't have one you need to get one.

Rating: 5/5 Invaluable tool for computer work August 27, 2014 It's a black stick. It pokes and prods and lifts things you might not want to touch or break a finger nail over. Also great for scratching the odd itch and as a make shift swizzle stick ...
