Re-magnetizing My Pro Tech Toolkit Screwdriver?

I have an iFixit Pro Tech toolkit and after awhile, the magnet inside has felt like it isn't picking up screws with as much strength as it did when I first got it. Is there any way to re-magnetize it?

This is what I use to magnetize or demagnetize tools:

Yes, it's actually quite easy.

Find a magnet (i.e. a speaker inside a PC case).

Simply tap the screwdriver tip against the magnet and quickly remove the tip once you tap it.

It may take a few tries, but if you tap it by touching and very quickly removing the tip, you have just magnetized your screwdriver.

Hi @reddaugherty ,

Alternatively as ifixit has a lifetime warranty on their tools you may wish to contact them about it and possibly get a replacement tool

It seems to me that you should still go to the iFixit service center. On your own, you can break the device even more. Or search directly on the manufacturer's website. I still sometimes use articles on sites with guides for repair. I recently fixed my phone like this. It turns out that there was some update on it. If it weren't for the tech news, I wouldn't even know what the problem was. It is good that it is possible to consume some narrowly focused information from one resource in our time. In extreme cases, you can turn to some masters. Good luck!
