    Can someone tell me how to seat this key properly, it's driving me mad :D

    Just got my first Toughbook on Friday. CF19 MK6 with 8gb RAM, 9/10 condition for €200. Quite happy overall with the deal.

    Looking forward to playing with it but trying to get this damn shift button to sit down seems hopeless. Do the 2 tiny white hinged bracket-y things need to sit flat??? The right side seems to naturally sit on top of the left. The button will clip down a bit but it's always wonky.

    If it does not snap into place, then the clips are broken.

    Sorry about the dust. It's been hiding in the shop.
    The right white bit sits on the left.

    Note the clips in the key bottom. with keyboard vertical (numbers toward floor) attempt to latch the black forks onto the white bits. Gently align then mash down fairly hard directly over black clips when they are in line.

    One of your black clips may be missing....can't tell from the image.

    I just took my key off my 19 and his looks broken to me. Not sure how to put this but here it goes....the white bits look broken or not lined up...the white bits on the left needs to be lined up with the right white bits. You may need to snap out another key to see what I mean

    Thanks Shawn. Looks much better now. Not sure if that's the problem or not but they are not lined up even.

    Tried to get some better light shots. Camera refused to focus up close:

    Still hard to make out, but one of the nibs on the bottom black clip has broken. Annoying. Guess I'll have to try find a replacement key. Could be a lot worse I suppose!

    Possibly might need a new one. I’ve never seen replacement keys before

    If you can't find one let me know. I am going to check today and see what it will cost to ship one overseas for you.
