Step 3: Last Step: Add Velcro
The last modification was the strip of Velcro. The section at the opening comes with a plastic strip protecting the sticky side. Over time the plastic strip begins to peel away and defaults to melding with the other side, turning your sleeve into a ready-to-mail package. I don’t want to mail my laptop, so I put Velcro on to repalce the glue strip.
Now you can keep your laptop in the sleeve and avoid the inevitable packaging of your laptop. The same stickiness warning from above applies here. After you lay down the first Velcro side, attach the second on top as if you were closing the lid. Then peel away the paper backing and press the package against it.That’s it! I’ve been using it for a couple weeks so far and it’s working great. I hear the occasional bubble pop once in a while, but for a total cost of three dollars it’s worth it.
