PB 1400 - Mac Portable

I was able to break off the "hook" that latches the lid to the body of my Powerbook 1400. I am considering trying to super glue it back although I don't think this will work. I started to try to remove the main portion of the hook but quit when I couldn't easily remove it from the lid. Does anyone have any other suggestions?...

    I was able to break off the "hook" that latches the lid to the body of
    my Powerbook 1400. I am considering trying to super glue it back
    although I don't think this will work. I started to try to remove the
    main portion of the hook but quit when I couldn't easily remove it from
    the lid.

    Does anyone have any other suggestions?

    That can't have been easy. :-(

    No, it's a bear. But you've downloaded the complete 1400 disassembly
    manual from apple.com, right? (Sorry: I have the Acrobat-printed
    manuals but no longer the URL. Finding the manual is just a matter of
    browsing the apple.com site, though.)

    I have an inelegant but fully serviceable suggestion. Because the
    screen's bezel is scooped out around its full perimeter, there is room
    for sticky-back Velcro strips. Adhere the stiff Velcro patches to the
    bezel's recessed outer-front corners, and adhere the plush Velcro
    patches on the upper surface of the main case's top-front edge
    (essentially under where your palms are when you type). There is enough
    room there to make a useful grip with the lid fully closed.

    When the 1400 is closed, it will look like any other 1400. A gentle
    (not violent or swift) raising of the lid will leave you ready for
    work.

    I hope this helps.

    I think they just shifted them around. I picked up a 1400C last weekend,
    and obviously started doing some searches for information about it.
    Found a link to a manual on the Apple site, but it was gone. Found
    a site that at first seemed to have archived the manuals,
    [url]http://home.earthlink.net/~gamba2/manuals.html[/url]
    I'm not sure if it's their archive, but the point to various other
    sites for the manuals, including some for the 1400 on the Apple
    site.

    Specifically,
    [url]http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=50593[/url]
    offers up at lest some 1400-related manuals.

    I was a tad disappointed to download a multi-meg PDF only to
    find that it was merely a disassembly manual. Useful, but
    for the actual amount of information it conveys, it's a pretty
    big PDF.
