    hey guys i took off my command key while trying to get a hair out from under the keyboard (stupid i know) and now it wont go back on straight. i dont think i broke anything i just cant get this thing back on right. the two clips at the top of the key clip in but the bottom does not. any secret to putting these things back on? thanks. oh yeah this is on a macbook pro btw.

    On my MacBook (I would assume that the Pro would use a similar set up) the plastic hinge piece is held in place by little aluminum loops essentially. If they hinge is not securely held, then the key won't go back on correctly.
