How to replace a MacBook's rubber feet

You probably love your MacBook Pro. But there is something we all hate about it: It's rubber feet.

I'll show you how simple it can be to design your own customized long-lasting rubber feet. They have a better grip and durability than the original ones.

Kit

  • 1 pack of Sugru
  • Soapy water

Step 1

Sugru used to cover old pads

Make a single roll of Sugru and cut it in 4 (equal) pieces. Then roll each of the pieces into a round ball (like we used to do with Play Doh!). Now place a ball of Sugru in one of the rubber feet slots (make sure you took out the original completely) pressing the rear end of the hole with a finger in order to prevent Sugru from squeezing in through the hole in the panel. Mould it to your best round shape.

Step 2

Sugru used to cover all of the old non slip pads

Repeat the same process for each slot. Use some soapy water to make the surface of each feet smooth. Also gently press the whole panel against a flat surface in order to level it.

Done! :)

Thanks Sugru!!
