Well this is good news for all of us that like to fix that which is not broken. Okay, let’s just call it an “improvement.” I had a hunch how the actual cover would be attached to the back piece, and I was right. For reference, I am not talking about how the whole book cover attaches to the nexus device.
Take a look at the backside of the whole setup here:
The piece I marked is a separate piece that “clamps” the cover part onto the back piece.
Here’s a closer look, see what I mean?
So I attempted to separate it using some heat and a little finesse.
Ah see it now? The cover is simply sandwiched in between.
At this point I stopped for two reasons. The first, this was taking forever and I was getting nervous the plastic would snap. It’s very flexible but I want to determine exactly how it’s all clamped together. I was able to easily snap the whole thing back and install the book cover on my device. You can’t even tell. But the second reason I stopped, was because I’m no seamstress! I need to get my mom or grandma out here to make me a new cover that I can attach to this back piece- a cover that of course can fold like the smart covers.
So let’s race, whoever mods theirs first, wins a prize!
