    Soo after two years of moving dropping beating and other unusual cruelities my mbp's latch close system has finally broke. The latches themselves dont pop out right (without a lot of force that is...). They dont latch right either if i can coax them out (again that excessive force thing comes to mind).

    Dose anybody got any ideas on how to keep it closed. Looking for cheap mainly. I tried tape but after one day the electrical tape lost its stickiness. This thing has got to last me another 2 years (somehow) until I can afford another.

    Kewwwwel. OP, that vial animated creature left a knot in my stomache, but any who, try the method in the video and if that doesn't work I think I have another solution. ;)
