Nexus 5 back cover lose after opening

I opened my nexus 5 to make a repair, but the back cover did not close very well. There are a few points where I suppose the plastic clips were damaged and there is a clear separation between the back cover and the phone. Is there some sort of glue I could use to secure the cover better, but still leave it able to be opened again in the future? Thanks.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Either choose double-sided adhesive or replace a new back cover.

Thanks. Do you have a double-sided adhesive you would recommend for use with phones? I don't think the issue is bad enough to warrant buying a new back cover. It's really only one, maybe two clips that are damaged.

Only mentioned that the adhesive used on phone called 3M adhesive like that http://www.witrigs.com/oem-back-supporti... You can pick up and stick it, but the adhesive is a little strong.
