The Apple touchpad is a wonderful device. But if either of the little 'feet' at the corners come off, it becomes unusable because the feet are actually the buttons that let you click. I lost a foot, figured the above out, and printed a replacement. It's an exact replacement, and not only pops right into place, but stays in place without any adhesive. Cool!

This thing was made with Tinkercad. Edit it online https://tinkercad.com/things/dQz11iel5oX


Print (100% fill - it's so tiny there's no point in trying to make it hollow).

Put it into the hole where you're missing a foot on an Apple trackpad.

Hold it in place, flip the trackpad over and use it. You can click!

If you can send me the measurements, I'd be happy to model it.

Well done! I was wondering how that darn thing worked.
