    • Your iFixit screwdriver has seen better days. Its been in one to many tight places and its mated with far too many screw faces. Its been a part of so many fixes that it seriously would appreciate some down time.

    • But no, you want to keep using this driver. You want it to weather the next fix. It's just not performing like it used to in its glory days.

    • So what is this anyway? A guide to fix a screwdriver? You bet.

    • If you're an owner of the original iFixit screwdriver included in the 54 Bit Driver Kit, you've probably noticed that the rubber grip rings on the screw driver wear out over time, develop small tears and fall off.

    • Regardless if they wear from over-torquing or the build up of oils from your hands, it's quite frustrating to lose the grip on a prised screwdriver.

    • Here's the solution: throw some o-rings on it.

    • 1/16in thick, 7/16 OD, 5/16 ID work wonders.

    • OD= outside diameter.

    • ID= inside diameter.

    • I picked up a bunch from my local hardware store. They are manufactured by Midwest Fastner. They cost $0.31 USD each.

    • So how do you remove the old grip? Simple, use your fingernails!

    • Otherwise, use toothpicks!

    • Remember the mohs scale? Wood won't carelessly scratch your metal tool!

    • That's it. If your grip's gone, shower your screwdriver in o-rings.
