Fixit Clinic is primarily a “pop-up” activity happening whereever we can get people interested in organizing one. See the pull down tab for current “active” locations and contact information. If there’s no email list for the Fixit Clinic in your area, you can always join the main list (primarily for the San Francisco Bay Area) at http://groups.google.com/group/fixitfan

No Fixit Clinic near you? Start One!

(See the “Start a Fixit Clinic” page at:

The main goal of Fixit Clinic is to get people comfortable disassembling their own broken stuff. The very acts of troubleshooting and inspecting an item often lead to figuring out how to fix it, and even if it doesn’t, at least you learned how it broke.

So, a minimal Fixit Clinic involves a reassuring environment where people feel comfortable taking apart their stuff and the few tools necessary to get them started.

We’ll put up a mechanism soon to help people locate existing repair activities nearby, but if you can’t find one we heartily encourage you to start one: we’ll help you launch!
