After taking them off and putting them back on several times, my case feet exhibit a reluctance to stick to the case. tongue.gif

So, is there any non-permanent solution I can use to keep them on there? I'm going to be opening/closing my xbox case a lot, so It has to be easily removable.

For now, i've just been using electrical tape to hold them down. Is there anything better, maybe double sided tape?

Try spray on glue.
Just spray the feet with the stuff, then stick it on your case.
Later, you'll be able to pry them off just like you did the first time.

If you're gonna be removing the feet all the time, then you might as well not have them on your case until you're done with your mods.

Nice. I usually cut the feet in half and glue one half back on. This is a better idea.

Bah, I can't find my holepuncher.

I'll probably pick one up in a store next time I see it, or try to find mine. sad.gif

find a socket about the size of the screw head and hammer the bastard through.

there you go... home-made hole punch.

LOL, who cares it's on the bottom of the case.

Just grab a drill and a bit, and drill a hole. Much easier.
