Fixing a broken Palmtop latch

Fixing a broken Palmtop latch

At the suggestion of HP Technical Support, I'm sending you my solution to the problem I had with the Palmtops latch. The latch is at the top of the Palmtops screen. When you close the shell, the little lip of the latch slips into the latch hole at the bottom of the keyboard and keeps the shell closed. When I closed the shell, the lid would not stay closed.

The solution was simple. I cut a piece of a thick rubber band to the length and width of the space behind the latch. I slipped it in that space to check the fit, trimmed it to size, and reinserted it with a drop of super glue to hold it in place.
