Little slide thingy on SD card
Posted by: MartyStickle

The little lock slide thingy on one of my SD cards won't stay put and everytime I put it into the camera or a slide reader it slides up so I can't erase it. Can I put a dab of glue on it to keep it in place. Don't care if I then can't lock it. Tough question, eh?

I don't see any reason why you can't.

I'd suggest using a small amount, perhaps even a gel consistency glue so it doesn't run inside.

make sure it isn't the kind of that will give way to heat generated by the camera and mess up the innards.

Ok, I think I'll find some epoxy to do the job and use just the tinyest dab with a toothpick. I wonder if I could remove the tab with needle nosed pliers. Would it then be locked or unlocked?

I'd just use a da of Crazy Glue.

I think that's pretty stable for the heat a camera would see.

Why not silicone sealant that you could also easily pick back off down the road ?
