    Some of these look strangely like some of my wife's fingernail gadgets. If it works, though, it works!

    Yea there weird but can't beat it for $9
    I tried a flat head screwdriver the first time I opened my laptop and now there are tiny blemishes by the keyboard. No biggie tho I fixed it with black permanent marker to match the black AW

    I also used a small flat head and regretted it later on. I've got a couple of blemishes too, and the hinge cover doesn't mate up so nicely. There's a small gap on the right-hand side that I can't get to go away either. Oh well.

    After you remove the screws in the bottom of the laptop to pull the hinge cover, you have to pry at the hinge cover right there by the speedometer touch button. Things can get a little hairy at this point if you use a flat head screwdriver like I did. It leaves little marks.

    yea those little blems really bother me. I used a black permanent marker to cover the blems. It matches my black M17X pretty good but i still know they are there :( These tools work great by the way. Not a bad investment for like $10
