iSesamo Opening Tool
What is iSesamo?
We know that doing the best repair requires the best tools. That why we have
spent the last few years looking for the best opening tool we could provide to
our users. We ve tried razor blades, spatulas, spikes, pins, picks, and many
custom designed opening tools. iSesamo is the best opening tools we tried. Made
in Italy, we have been providing these from Dotterpod since they were all
handmade. Now popularized by FoneFunShop, this tool is sought after by repair
shops around the globe. In the hands of a repair professional, this opening tool
will make short work of popping open even the most difficult iPod cases.
Crafted for one purpose. A thin sheet of springy steel, designed
to slide easily between panels and into microscopic cracks. An expertly curved
tip, perfected to get the right angle on electronic casing clips. And with a
no-slip grip, this tool is much more effective and reliable than other case
Double edged sword. Made from metal means it s longer
lasting than plastic opening tools, which rarely last for more than one repair.
It can release the rusty or bound clips where plastic tools may have failed in
the past. However, being made of metal also means the tool can and will scratch
or mar softer materials like case plastic. It requires a steady hand to use
properly, but does work best.
