Mid 2010 Macbook Pro. I used a zip tie as suggested in previous post - worked great. Zip tie is connected by existing screws.
-* Choose tie wide enough to fit screw holes. Measure and cut the tie to approximate length from screw 1 (lower right) to screw 2 (upper left). You will trim this later. Mark on tie where to place first hole (lower right screw).
-* Use ice pick to create hole (this takes a bit of back and forth to get it to match the screw thread size).
-* Screw the first screw into the tie and then into the socket. Mark tie where 2nd screw hole is to be made.
-* Remove first screw (and tie) and then make hole for 2nd screw. I made the hole just a little smidge lower down the tie to give extra tightening across ram.
+* Choose zip tie wide enough to fit screw holes. Measure and cut the zip tie to approximate length from screw 1 (lower right) to screw 2 (upper left). You will trim this later. Mark on zip tie where to place first hole (lower right screw).
+* Use ice pick to create hole in zip tie - this takes a bit of back and forth to get it to match the screw thread size.
+* Screw the first screw into the zip tie and then into the socket. Mark zip tie where 2nd screw hole is to be made.
+* Remove first screw (and zip tie) and then make hole for 2nd screw. I made the hole just a little smidge lower down the zip tie to give extra tightening across ram.
* Note: 2nd screw thread is smaller diameter so don’t make that hole as big as the first one.
-* Screw in both screws to the tie first and then they are held in place when you screw into the sockets. Screw each into sockets.
+* Screw in both screws to the zip tie first and then they are held in place when you screw into the sockets. Screw each into sockets.
* Use fingernail clipper to snip off excess tie on each end.
