iFixit's Self-Repair Manifesto

iFixit’s Self-Repair Manifesto

Our relationship with our stuff has spiraled out of control. We buy things, use them for a short while, and then replace them with the next model. Manufacturers build products that break quickly so we are forced to buy another.

That ends now. It’s time to take a stand!

If you can’t fix it, you don’t own it.

We need to shout this from the rooftops. Let’s post this manifesto in every coffee house, repair shop, and garage in the world.

Put it up everywhere

We really, really want people to read this manifesto. So much so that we printed up some awe-inspiring posters, and we’re including a copy with the next 5,000 orders we ship. If you buy something from us, you don’t have to do a thing—we’ll include the poster with your order.

You can also download high resolution files here:

Print it out or get a copy from us, then put it up somewhere. Take a geotagged photo and add it to our flickr pool! We’ll make a map of the results and post it here. Let’s take the fight against planned obsolescence to the streets!

I love iFixit. I especially love how they sell toolkits with all the security bits one could ever want!


:smiley: Plus I’ve used their tear down guides more times than I can count. Excellent site. A+++++. Ships quickly. Would recommend.

If anyone is an iFixit user (or contributor!) you should add yourself to our “Team” on the site. It’s just me and I haven’t contributed anything (yet), but there ya go:



What’s the join code?
