How can I close the case properly?

I have just received a faulty iPad 1which I have fixed the digitiser cable on but now I can't get the front to clip into the back cover properly, it just flops out when I turn it over.

Is there something I'm missing or is it likely there are some broken clips? I can't see anything that looks broken?

Tell me it doesn't need to be glued down.. :-(

Is this a good question?

It actually looks like maybe there are some broken tabs. One side has a few tabs, the rest of the sides have none. You can see where they are supposed to be but they are not there.

If you broke some of the display clips (it happens to the best of us) you can replace them with our iPad display clip set. We also sell them individually, if you prefer.

Excellent, I'll be ordering a set of those then. The iPad drives like this btw, I tend to be a little more careful myself ;-)
