iFixit has been helping iPhone owners fix their busted devices for over a decade. Now the company is ready to help you from breaking your iPhone in the first place with a new line of cheap iPhone cases that also give your device an X-ray look.

The new iFixit Insight cases only cost $9.99 no matter how big or small your iPhone is. They’re made from thermoplastic polyurethane that is shock-absorbent to protect your device from shattered screens, dings, dust and more.

Each case comes in either a color version that looks like you have a clear back to view the components or an X-ray version that lets you see through the different layers of components inside. They also have precise cutouts for easy access to volume, power, ringer buttons and the like without letting dirt get inside.

All of the cases are available starting today. The company has one for every iPhone from the iPhone 6 to the iPhone XS Max.

Here’s where to buy them:
