The apple iPad 3 Smart Cover is great, but the screen cover just flaps around when flipped open. This is especially true if you're right handed and are holding the iPad on the left side with your left hand. As the screen cover is magnetic, wouldn't it be great if it snapped closed AND open??

Step 1: Cut Sheet Metal

Cut a small thin strip of sheet metal and cover the edges in tape to prevent scratching the iPad. Put it in the case with the metal side facing downwards, or tape up the whole piece if you feel like it.
Oh snap! What a clever fix for a mildly irritating problem.
