Check In for (Virtual) Fixit Clinic
Present your broken item to a global team of expert community repairers and get suggestions for things to try. After all items have presented we put items/participants and repairers into Zoom breakout rooms to implement the suggestions and, hopefully, fix the items.
- Do you have a computer, phone or tablet (and internet connection) that will support video teleconferencing (Zoom)?
- Can you show the problem in about five minutes?
- (Optional:) Can you have some rudimentary disassembly tools at the ready?
- Can you fill out the Report Broken Item form at
If yes: register below.
Thanks; and we look forward to seeing your smiling face at the Fixit Clinic!
Community repairers (or wannabe repairers, "fixing families") are heartily welcome to help fix (or just observe): sign up at
