    Hi all, I've got a 17" SR MBP and I'm wondering if there is a way to tighten the hinge? The screen moves too easily... I want it tighter if possible. Anyone done this?

    hey. i have a similar issue. one of my friends (he has a rev A core duo mbp) lifted my 17" SR over his head and suddenly, the lcd closed due to gravity on his head. I was soooo pissed off at him.

    anyways, radtech.us has a kit that allows you to loosen the hinges. maybe it can also tighten it.
