NewerTech iSesamo

The ultimate repair tool for electronic device repair
iSesamo makes opening electronics simple. This must-have tool for repair pros and DIYers is a thin, flexible and resilient steel blade that easily slides between panes of the most common electronic devices to pop them open in an instant. Whether you're changing a battery, a display LCD, touch screen or internal components, iSesamo makes accessing those components quick and painless. Perfect for iPods, iPhones, iPads, Blackberrys, and many others.

Unlike plastic spudgers, which are often too thick and only good for a single use, iSesamo's ultra-thin steel design allows for easy entry into microscopic seams and can be used over and over. It comes with a clear, flexible, rubber handle for maximum grip and precision handling as you work.
Open with Care
As always, when working with expensive electronics like the iPhone, iPod or iPad, exercise extreme care as longterm damage can result from excessive force, jarring or scraping. This tool is made of metal and can scratch the casing or glass of your device.

Rating: 5/5 Amazing spudger/prying tool for opening up the backcase of any phone September 28, 2021 The iSesamo prying tool is way better than any plastic spudger/prying tool I have tried to use to open the backcase of my off-brand phone. Simple and clean packaging, small pamphlet to show off iSesamo products and the iSesamo prying tool itself. Make sure to use a hot blowdryer/heat gun to get soften up the dried up glue between the crack of the phone screen and the back of the phone case and then you can use the iSesamo knife to dig easily into the thin crack between the case and the phonescreen. The iSesamo tool has a nice flexibility to it and it does not break very easily. The metal tip may bruise if you go too hard on trying to dig into the edges between the screen and case, but the metal doesn't deform at all and keeps its nice thin form. The tool has a nice gripping material for your hand to hold it. It helps a lot from keeping your hands from getting hurt by gripping the metal. Amazing product that you cannot go wrong with. I finally managed to take out the back case of my phone after getting this tool. 5/5

Response from OWC, Support September 29, 2021 So very glad to hear about your amazing experience with our tool! We really do get it...sometimes its helpful to open up devices to repair them yourself, replace batteries, etc. But this can't be done unless you have the tools, and making sure those tools are top quality so they can not only last through that project, but others as well. Glad to hear that the NewerTech iSesamo could fulfill that need and feel free to reach out with any others.

Rating: 5/5 Extremely useful June 22, 2021 I bought this tool years ago for working on an iPhone 4 and it has proved to be extremely useful and durable. Has many other uses besides looking good. It has a comfortable durable bonded rubber surface that is easy to find and hold. The blade is very springy and stain resistant. I keep it stuck to a magnet for quick reference.

Rating: 5/5 Pry Tool August 17, 2018 I am replacing same type of tool with this one. Old one is very worn with lots of use. These are almost essential for easily getting into electronic devices. I use mine to start opening electronics and then continue with plastic picks or spudgers.

Rating: 5/5 Great tool... November 3, 2016 High strength, durable materials; makes dissassembly a breeze. Plastic counterpart spudgers are a joke and tool is reasonably priced. Advise buying more than one.

Rating: 5/5 The RIGHT tool for a particular job December 27, 2015 I've been opening older iPods with the cheap plastic/nylon pry tool for years. I could do it easily, for 4th gen iPod and older, because the seam is not very tight. But I could not find a way to pry off the two plastic end pieces on iPod mini, without causing ugly damage. Until I found this great tool, which made it easy. The ultra-thin edge easily slides in between the seam.

I haven't had a need to open my 5th gen iPod nano yet, but it will probably need a new battery at some point. It slides into the seam between plastic end piece and metal easily too. I don't have any other tool that can do it.

SO, for this particular job, this tool is indispensable. It looks durable, for its purpose. The rubbery "handle" area feels nice to hold.

Rating: 5/5 Best opener November 1, 2014 It is strong and efficient but you have to be careful when using it as metal, it can damage and marks parts, but it is a must in certain case to lift a glued batteryy or similar.

Rating: 5/5 An indispensable tool July 8, 2014 A flexible and strong tool to open whatever you need to open. Just remember that it's not like a soft nylon tool - This will leave marks and scrapes if you're rough with it.
