Good glue for reattaching Pinebook Pro feet
#1
The feet on my PBP are barely holding on. It looks like this is a common problem, so I'm asking for advice of others who are . . . footloose . Cool

What glue works well for reattaching loose feet?

I ended up having good results with plain old cyanoacrylate, also known as Super Glue and Krazy Glue. However, what I found as the most important part is the process, how to glue rather than the glue itself. What I ended up doing is removing the bottom cover, putting a little bit of glue around the holes where the feet attach, attaching the feet, but then putting the cover feet down onto a flat surface, then pouring a generous amount of glue into the whole so that some of it gets into the openings in the feet themselves and it pours a bit over the edges of the holes in the bottom cover. Then I put a smaller dumbbell on top of it and left it there overnight. After I put it back together several months back the feet were holding together pretty well, whereas before then I tried bunch of different glues (including cyanoacrylate) and the feet would still come off within few weeks.

For what it's worth (Buffalo Springfield?), you can get generic rubber (and cork, plastic, etc.) feet at just about any hardware store or "big-box store" for less than the cost of one of those one-time-use glues.

UPDATE: I removed all the old glue from the case and the rubber feet with Goo Gone. Then I put a thin layer contact cement on the case and the feet, let it set for a few minutes then carefully placed the feet in the case and flipped it over and let it set overnight. The feet seem to be holding in place very well.
