Any tips for installation?

Installation is quick and easy, but we do have a few tips:

  • Since the feet are rubber, they can stretch or compress when installing. Try to install it with a “natural” state but if you find that they are either longer (may have stretched a bit), or are shorter than the channel (they compressed a little bit) – simply lift about 50% of the foot as the adhesive stays on the computer and reseat it while either gently compressing or stretching it a bit.
  • The adhesive obtains its optimal properties after 24-hours and with pressure activation. After installing, apply pressure along the feet with your fingers and leave the Surface Book overnight with some added weight like books.
  • If after use you find the feet loosen from the adhesive, an easy trick is to smear a tiny bit of super glue between the adhesive and feet and apply pressure for 20 seconds. You only need a tiny bit so don’t leave larger drops that will squeeze out.
What is your advice, to get the original or extra grip?

It depends on you and your uses. We like the extra grip for a few reasons:

  • When you carry your Surface Book or pull it out of a bag, the extra grip surprisingly adds a lot of security to prevent slips and falls of the device (particularly if maybe you had some sweaty hands).
  • If you’re working on slanted surfaces or surfaces that tend to get bumped, the extra grip helps to prevent your device from sliding as easily.
  • The extra grip is a little bulkier, allowing for better airflow under your device for cooling (although, for Surface Books the bulk of the heating is in the tablet portion).
  • One potential downside is for users that lean their screen as far as possible, the bulkier feet change the balancing point and can make the device rock a little, particularly if your touching or using the stylus on the tablet.

On the other hand, the original is a great choice if you’ve never noticed that your Surface Book may slip out from between your fingers, or slide on a surface. It maintains the form and looks of your device closer to the original new state.

My Gecky Feet adhesive is damaged. Can I get a replacement?

Yes, we’d be happy to mail you a free set of replacement adhesive strips and instructions on how to apply them to your existing Gecky Feet and secure them.

While installation is easy, mistakes do happen (or the adhesive may not have cured properly overnight or needed a little extra pressure to activate). It can also simply eventually fail with use. In either case, let us know and we’ll help you out.

How can I confirm if I have the 13.5″ or 15″ Surface Book model?

• On your Surface device, click the “Start” icon, or press the Windows key
• Type “surface” and open the “Surface App”
• Click “get started” or “Your Surface” menu on the left. This will display the serial number and model, e.g. “Surface Book 2 13.5-inch display”
