    Go to Aldi, if you have one, they sell a thing designed to be used as a handrail in showers. It looks like an old fashioned phone handset with a sucker at each end. It i supposed to be placed against a tiled wall and then "clipped" there, so people with disability issues have a safe hand rail. I opened the box and it looked ideal for removing an imac screen. It cost five pounds.

    Interested in this! Got to love ALDI....

    Looking to buy an iMac shortly but shudder when I select the Apple SSD option!

    So, once you have sucked out the screen and done your business, how does it go back together? Just pushes back in?

    Ta.

    In essence, yes. The glass screen is just held in situ by magnets. Look at ifix to see their mac teardown.
