Brightly colored spudgers possible?

Your spudgers are great, and I use them a lot. In particular, they're great for propping open laptops while testing to reduce dis/re-assembly cycles, laying under laptop keyboards that snap into place with tabs during testing, etc.

I haven't yet, but can see myself, trying to use a little extra (read as 'too much') force to close a laptop up with the spudger in there, since it's not visible from outside, being dull black in shadow.

My imagination first saw them as a set of bright pastels, but a vivid 'neon' color rainbow set could be useful, too. (Now I'm sitting here chuckling @ 'Collect the whole set!' which will bring back memories of a commercial to those of a certain age)

Anyway...good idea? Or should I just work on being more methodical, rather than impatient? :-)

Hey Doug! That's a cool suggestion. While I always suggest making sure you're not leaving your scalpel spudger inside your repair patients when you close them up, bright colors are always helpful. We'll definitely consider that in a future spudger. In the meantime, our plastic opening tools come in a sweet iFixit blue that's a bit brighter than the black of our spudger, so hopefully you won't be leaving any of those behind.
