WHAT YOU NEED
- Superglue (e.g. Loctite Super Glue Power Flex)
Get the materials
You will need a shock-resistant superglue (e.g. Loctite Super Glue Power Flex) and a cloth.
Measure the parts
First things first: Take a deep breath, relax and be confident that you'll fix your broken laptop key in no time. Then, measure up the two parts of the broken key to make sure they fit together tightly with no gaps. This way, you'll guarantee a better adhesion and you'll barely see the crack once fixed.
Clean the parts
Before fixing it, you must make sure that both parts of they key are clean, especially the bonding area. With a cloth, clean the two parts to be glued and make sure they form a large bond area.
Apply the product
When you need to glue tight fitting parts, superglue is the product to pick as it works at its best in these situations. Applying slight pressure on the tube, add a very thin bead of superglue (e.g. Loctite Super Glue Power Flex) to one of the parts. Ensure that there is just enough glue to cover the whole bond area when the bond is made.
Bond the parts together
Ready to see your key as one single piece again? Carefully line up the second part and press together for at least 10 seconds. Do not move the bond during this time as this could affect the adhesion.
Place the fixed key on its position on the keyboard until it clicks. Feels good to have it fixed, doesn't it? Now, after learning how to fix laptop keys, grab your materials from your stylish shelf and go back to working on your tasks that will be done in no time!
