Right size, different material, poor adhesion
on June 7, 2013
I ordered these to replace old, cracking rubber feet on my MacBook Pro A1297 mid-2010 17". They arrived in fine condition at a reasonable speed.
After unpacking, I removed the old, cracked foot and peeled off a new one to replace it. In prepping the case bottom for the new one, I had peeled away the old adhesive and left a clean, dry surface for the new foot. It fit perfectly, so the size was correct, but once I stuck it down, it did not adhere well and the new foot fell off within minutes. I tried applying pressure but the included double sided tape ring just is not sufficient to hold the feet to the case. This issue was confirmed with a second foot I installed that performed the same.
The original feet felt pliable and obviously rubber, which will grip surfaces and prevent movement. These feet however are made of a hard plastic that slides easily across hard surfaces, defeating one of the key features of the feet.
I am not satisfied and a bit disappointed with the performance of this product.
