How can I make the hinge for the Chromebook tighter?

The Chromebook's hinge is very loose and the screen keeps falling whenever set to an angle greater than around 100 degrees relative to the keyboard surface. Is there any way I can tighten the hinge to prevent this from happening?

Are you tech-savvy enough to open it? Sounds like the screws may need tightened, either on the LCD's side or on the mobo side.

Start with tightening the lower chassis screws to see if the issue goes away, although it can also be loose inside the LCD assembly, this procedure is a lot more invasive. I’ve also noticed it’s usually the lower chassis screws anyway, so the more invasive procedure is often not going to fix the problem. Refer to this guide to get to the screws for the hinges.

If you continue to have issues, then you need to try tightening the hinge screws under the LCD. To do this, you will need a plastic pry tool (and patience) to get the bezel off to access the screws.

If neither of these help, then the hinges are worn out or the plastic failed. These Chromebooks usually use fatigue prone plastic, even on the education certified models. The only difference between a consumer/business one seems to be the included contract unless it’s a little tougher at most.

@nick that seems to be a battery replacement guide.

It's the closest thing I can find that exposes the bottom hinges without getting too invasive.
