The fabric thing didn't work at all: as soon as my finger caught the edge of the fabric the piece tore off really quickly.

I went to Ace and bought this thing (excuse the dust) which kinda bites into my finger and is really easy to use. The only problem is that it doesn't really stick onto the c-stick that well. Additionally, it rises up just enough that the screen comes in to contact with it when you close the device, pushing it down a bit. This hasn't done any damage to the bottom right corner of the screen yet, and I have a screen protector on anyway, but it's still not the ideal solution.

I'm going to glue together this little washer thing and a cut-to-fit piece of this sprinkler filter, both also purchased at a hardware store. Then I'll glue that over the c-stick using this Pliobond stuff which I bought because it says it works on rubber and withstands stretching and flexing -- what I believe to be a contributing reason for failure of the regular super glue when I tried using fabric.

I let the glue cure for a couple days. Now I've done some basic trimming: if the piece works I'll bend down the pointy edges (very carefully as to not upset the glue) and glue the contraption onto the c-stick. Here's a shot of the underside and here's what it looks like in action.

The mod passed the cafe test. It's not the ideal fix, but it's a hell of a lot better than the c-stick alone. One thing I wish I had done was drill out the center of the washer ever so slightly. The metric-sized washer I used was a tight fit, and sometimes it popped off

(I never did glue it on).
