The iPad is held in place to the back case by a set of 14 iPad clips. The problem with these clips is that it’s almost impossible to open the iPad and not break these clips.
Since the iPad release, we’ve seen one Broken iPad after another and have seen iPads in the shop for repair almost daily. Our techs are good, but the fewest clips one of them has managed to break during a repair so far is three.
The good news is that we offer a Replacement iPad Clips set for $9.95. The set includes fourteen clips.
We are also offering an individual iPad clip for $.95.
Eventually we expect a tool will be available to make it so these don’t get broken during an iPad Repair, but until then you’ll just have to replace them as you repair them.
