If your keys fell off from your Apple keyboard, you can easily repair it by following the installation guide below.

Requirement: You should have a key cap, one large and one small plastic piece (retainer clips).

Step 1. To install your key on your Apple laptop keyboard, start out by observing your metal plates on the keyboard.

Step 2. Always be sure to look at the metal keys because they differ in every keyboard. The larger metal hooks can be at the top, bottom, right or left side. The position of the metal hooks determines the position of plastic pieces.

Step 3. Take the larger plastic piece and observe that it has two large sticks, two smaller sticks and two holes in the middle. The larger sticks are going to go into the two metal holes on the keyboard. The smooth part faces away from the keyboard.

Step 4. Take the smaller plastic piece and observe that it has two sticks at one end, two sticks at the middle and a bar at the other end. The sticks in the middle are going to go into the middle holes of the larger piece. The bar is going to click onto the larger metal hook on the keyboard. The smooth part faces away from the keyboard.

Step 5. Place the smaller piece on the larger piece and insert its sticks to the holes of larger piece. It’s one piece now.

Step 6. Insert the larger sticks into the two metal holes and the bar into the large metal hook. Get a thin object or a blade and stretch the plastic pieces to insert completely.

Step 7. Take your letter key, put it in the middle and push down evenly from all four sides.

Done! You’ve just repaired your Apple laptop keyboard.
