The hinges on my old MacBook Ait froze up and busted, and this point it's not worth it to me to buy the new parts (something like $200).

So I built these to hold the screen up when open, and not take up too much space. I just epoxied em to the bottom of the Air, and they hold the screen at a pretty good angle.


No real instructions. I printed it in PLA, epoxied em on the bottom, and they work pretty well.
