When the screen of your iPhone gets cracked, the usual option entails going to an Apple store and shelling out big bucks to get your iPhone repaired. Sure, repair kits are readily available, but how easy are they to use? Take a look at this 10-year old who managed to do this repair by himself. If he can do so, you should be able to do it as well.

This crafty 10-year old named Brett repaired his dad’s iPhone with a $22 mail-order kit from 3GCrackedGlass.com. This repair was for the glass alone, the LCD wasn’t damaged.

Brett’s repair actually saved his dad from buying a whole new iPhone.  For comparison’s sake, Apple charges $200 for this same procedure.

Honestly, I don’t like messing with the insides of my electronic gadgets. I don’t mind getting my hands dirty, but it’s easy to break stuff. That’s why this is really inspiring.
