'Scissor' is the term I found in a PDF file explaining how to replace keys on a Mac notebook; the nylon clip that actually holds each key to the computer.

While removing my M key to clean underneath it, I apparently broke off the tiny peg at one corner of the scissor so, every now and then, the key comes off.

Would someone have an old MacBook they keep around for spare parts and who could spare one of those nylon scissor thingies? Or, does someone have a story whose moral is to have several scissors on-hand, just in case?

Thanks.

I have a bunch for PowerBooks and MacBook Pros of that era, but I can't find any of my old MacBook keyboards.

If you have an Apple Store or Apple Authorized Reseller or Service Provider nearby you could go in and ask for one. It used to be pretty common that they'd keep a handful around for these occasions and give 'em out for free to worthy customers. I always did when I worked for one.

Thanks, Anonymous.

There is an Apple store not far from me, and I'll ask them.
