    • Pry the rubber off the top of the device

    • All the rubber

    • Use your fingernails, then pull with your bare hands. Do no use a heat gun or prying tool as they will damage the adhesive.

    • Look at the side of the device with the metal stand

    • Take a heat gun to the two small foam pads

    • You only need to pry off the halves on the top plastic shell

    • Put scraps of glossy paper on the foam pads to prevent them from sticking on again

    • Alternatively, if you do not mind sacrificing aesthetics, you may slice the foam pads down the middle as in the picture.

    • Look for a small metal rectangle with a hole

    • It's supposed to give a Kensington lock a better hold than the thin backplate

    • It's insufficiently glued on
