I will show you how to easily and quickly repair a broken space bar.

Most space bars have a piece of wire in them, to push down the bar evenly, however on older/cheaper keyboards, this bar will tend to come off.

Step 1: Find a paperclip

Find a paperclip, bend it straight, and cut off 2 small sections.

Bend these little sections into a v shape with a very small gap.

<p>Thanks for this guide! It took a while for me to bend the paper clip properly and press it into place, but now the space bar for my external keyboard is working properly.</p>

I can't see what was broke, or how it was fixed. I realise this is small stuff to photograph, but how did the break manifest it's self?<br /> <br /> L<br />
The three pieces are shaped to hold it. The center one holds it into the other two hook shaped pieces. The center piece is too small to hold the wire into the hooks, so the bent paperclip does. Ill add another picture.<br />
