Slider wobble/clatter/rattle/click when tapping on the screen when slider closed

Compare to the video tapping the screen on your Pro 1 when slider is closed

  1. 1. Compare to the video tapping the screen on your Pro 1 when slider is closed

    • My one has no clatter at all
      12
    • My one has a clatter, but not as bad as in video, acceptable to me
      16
    • My one has a clatter, about the same (or worse) as in video
      14

From what I have noticed, the side without the second arm is not as firmly fit (or because the upper part is supported by the other arm) and that's why the clacking happens. For me, when the keyboard is open in landscape upper left corner is completely still, but right corner is able to move just a little to make clacking noise.

For me it seems like that the fit between the bolt holding the arm in the screen and arm in the base could be more finely tuned or the second arm should also exist in the bottom to generate more pressure to keep the screen balanced.

Since the spring really do through a punch 😄 I almost dropped the phone the other day when I tried to open the slider one handed.

Did someone find a good solution, that doesn't take 2-4 month to arrive? I recently recieved my phone and experience the same rattle. Honestly (despite the company saying otherwise) that is not normal. If I hadn't been following the forum here and thus knowing about the easy fix, that would have been a reason for me to ask for a replacement immediately.

Here an example with some allegedly 0.5mm thin rubber strips from here suitably cut

I placed two 'long' strips (5x65mm) at each end, and two minor pieces, one next to the space bar under the screen (3x17mm), and one on the opposite long edge side (7x17mm).

@EskeRahn I assume that is what you ended up with? How does it uphold in usage?

Yup, it is still there, and works like a charm. And it is easy to wipe clean.
