I want to give my minifigs a few laptops. Specifically, 62698 "minifigure utensil, laptop"s:

minifig utensil, laptop

I've seen laptops in sets and MOCs, but always either (a) closed, being held in a minifig hand or clip, or (b) open, laying on top of a tiled surface (like a desk), unattached.

But instead I want the laptop to lay securely on top of a table/desk while open. By "securely" I mean "if I shake the model, the laptop should remain in place" (no need for technic-level sturdiness).

AFAIK, an open laptop is too thin to be held by a clip, and has no obvious way of fitting over studs. What technique(s) can I use to attach an open laptop to a table?

    If you're not limited to pure LEGO solutions, a tiny piece of blu-tac rolled flat could work?

  • I would like to avoid adhesives. Besides, blu-tac doesn't qualify as building :-D Jan 9, 2022 at 23:25

    Do rubber bands count as building? A Technic plate underneath with a rubber band through the holes would surely be sturdy enough for a little shake.

  • Rubber band was first thing on my mind too, but they rarely come in Black color. There are some larger size, but they are a little pricey. Maybe string with end studs could be used to instead of rubber band.

    I can't test this idea as I don't own that laptop piece, but wouldn't the flat circular end of a minfig lever / antenna fit into the front slot of the laptop?
