Key cap came off

I just realized the cap to the "control" key came off. I have this little white piece that kind of looks like the gate to a castle that came off of the key. Other than that, the key seems to work. How do I fix it?

There's a knack to it (which I never seem to have acquired!) - you need to slide the white gate under the hook (looks a bit like ), and then clip it in the other end. The keycap should push back on.

If not, pop to an apple store and hope one of the geniuses has the knack!
