    So my Fn key and option key have felt terrible since the day I got my MBP. I managed to break one of the nubs off the plastic scissor mechanism and now it won't stay down. Is there anywhere I can go (online or location) where I can get 2??? Thanks.

    I am going to have to ask for a picture because I don't get the whole "scissoring" part.

    The plastic keeper. The thing that resembles a scissor jack for a car.

    you mean the part the clips the key into its spot on the keyboard?
    tat adjusts its release? (when pressing down and it coming back up)...

    Go to the apple store. They will often give those out for free. I know they give out free keys sometimes when you loose a key.
