The magic of the Magic Trackpad is its ability to physically click - while appearing to not have any moving parts.

The secret to the Magic Trackpad's clicking ability is in those innocuous looking round rubber feet on the bottom. They're not just there to be normal old rubber feet that merely provide grip to keep it from sliding around on your desk. And they're not entirely rubber, either. The rubber you see and feel protruding from the bottom is only a very thin and fragile sheath covering a hard plastic foot.

The feet need to be rigid. When you click the surface by pressing down on it these rubber/plastic feet are the only parts of the trackpad that *don't move*.

This guide will explain how to re-insert one (or both) of the Magic Trackpad's rubber feet

  2. The rubber buffer consists of two parts: a rigid part made ​​of plastic and the sheath, which is made ​​of rubber. The shape of the foot may not be perfectly spherical, as in the photo. This can occur when a portion of the rubber flap has come out of the notch. When you put it back in, it will become spherical again.

where can i buy the plastic feet?????

Lorraine Hughes - Contestar

Yes. Where can I buy the rubber feet?

Rick Sciranko -

I bought mine off Ali Express. There’s quite a few stores on there that sell them. Here’s the one I bought from.

James Sanday -

Found this guide confusing. Here's what worked for me:

1. Place the tip of a butter knife inside the hole and gently lift the plastic high enough to place the tip of another butter knife on the side and hold the plastic up.

2. Remove the first butter knife from the hole. Gently raise the plastic with the second butter knife high enough to slide the foot underneath.

3. Use the first butter knife to slide/rotate the foot into place

Jeremy Johnson - Contestar

The butter knife technique worked for me! I just cracked open the bottom edge of where my little rubber foot had fallen out. (Somehow the plastic was still in there so I was able to stick the foot back in and it works!)
