Need to open your retro video games or systems for cleaning or repair? 

Our bits are made from strong heat treated, hardened steel.  As you can see from our feedback, our bits are top quality.  The bits measure 5 cm (just under 2 inches) in length.

We carry both a 3.8mm Video Game Security Bit and a 4.5mm Video Game Security Bit.  These bits allow you to open, repair, and to clean a number of video games and systems.  See below for a list of compatible games and systems.
