    Very useful to open up vriuoas devices such as Ipods, Blackberrys and TomToms. I used this toolkit to replace old battery in my TomTom GO 730. First of all I used to tab to loosen the housing and then used faceplate pry bars to lift out the PCB. If you would like to minimize the risk of your device getting damaged or scratched I would advise to get this kit. The only downside is that faceplate pry bars are flimsy and are easily broken. In terms of seller, very happy with although delivery could be faster considering the postage was not free.
