In case you're wondering I'm not a prude I've just not very good at making jokes.

If any-one hasn't fixed their plexiglass yet, I've just done mine and it was dead easy. 

I put a piece of the soft side of velcro on the 4 corners of the screen frame as Mike suggested and 4 pieces of the hooked side of the velcro on the corners of the plexiglass , but instead of using glue as Mike suggested I used self adhesive velcro as this could be peeled off at a later date if you didn't want permanent velcro on your laptop. 

This holds very securely and is simple to do and the lip closes OK.

Only problem is I can't see my mousepointer through the screen (in daylight) - lets hope it's visible  in the dark.

I've put mine in my window at home. It's got a light behind it to remind me that I need to do something with it.

Keep getting strange men call at the door at funny times of the night though...
