Rubber Feet

Recommended Posts

Case mods seems appropriate, but this applies to every xbox ever opened.

The rubber feet are very nice to remain intact. whats everyone using to stick these back on, the factory stuff is perfect.

Hot glue works great and can be peeled back off when needed.

I only peel the end up and leave the rest attached. They lay back down pretty good once I have the screws back in.

Yep, that's what I do. Just fold back the side of the foot that reveals the screw. Back out the screw, and lay the foot back down. Done deal.

Now, if someone could find a super secret method for getting those two middle screws out without touching the stickers.....THAT would be something :)

This may be a cardinal sin, but I just cut a hole in them. I use a hobby knife, start in the middle, cut out toward the side until I hit the edge of the screw hole, then follow it around. Same with the stickers.

cardinal sin aside... some days the case flys open 3 times on mine (for whatever reason) you've adapted a permanent solution. i actually kinda like it.

I use specifically this brand: Please login or register to see this link.

 

Not just for xboxs but other electronics as well. It's thicker and gummier than standard scotch double sided or anything like that, which seems to keep things together a lot nicer than other products I have used. Clean the old tape off, stick the rubber pad on one side of the tape, x-acto knife around it to cut it off, peel the other side and stick on. Sometimes I'll hit the part side and surface side with a hot hair dryer to loosen it up a bit more to get a better bond. 

 

I spent years repairing cell phones, I have gone through the gambit of different tapes and adhesives, I use many, but this is one of the better general purpose ones IMO.
