I'm going to be taking apart my laptop soon because the screen is very wobbly.

The cause of the wobbly screen:
http://prntscr.com/47pv5a

As you can see, over in the circled red area is very loose and can be moved around alot. Also, my laptop can not be closed fully. I know how to fix this.

To fix this problem:

1. Remove the battery
2. Unscrew the four screws under the battery (or where the battery was)
3. Pop the slide bar out
4. Tighten the two screws by the hinges


But, my question is: How do I put the slide bar back on? I'm afraid that all the videos I've seen of people repairing this problem, they don't ever show them putting the slide bar back on. Can I put it back on?

As you can see, in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzmjH1rM1DY he states that he broke the tabs to get it off. So if you break it, how do you put the slide bar back on? Will it still be functioning? Will it still have all the lights and stuff?

Please help me out, thanks!

Regards,
Ryan

Update 1: If it helps, I have the i7 720QM, GT240M, 4GB model (black).
