Someone wrote to comment yesterday or the day before that they were having a problem with a cover they bought, and I clicked on 'Publish' but then it disappeared. It's not in 'Spam' (where there are 95,000 of those) and not in 'Published' ... If you see this, let me know what the problem was as I no longer have access to what you wrote. Apologies.

Anonymous,
I have the cover for my Kindle 2 and for my DX. Neither one has ever been damaged. The only way you can damage it with this cover is to open it up on the wrong side forcefully when you find it won't open very far from the back.

It's easy to do, once. After that it would be very hard to forget.

Amazon's current DX covers are not $79 without a built-in light. Don't know what you mean by $20 more. Since you didn't link the cover, I'm assuming this is a good cover you bought and liked, which is good information so am adding your comment to the area. I found later a good sleeve for $20 and it's not necessary to to pay $100 for a good cover. HOWEVER, I did once pay $80 for a beautiful cover out of pure self-indulgence (we deserve it). I've loved the hinged cover though and use it whenever I want best security for the Kindle.

I love my Kindle DX.

But after the horrid cover with hooks damaged my first two Kindles I found (after getting my third DX) that the Peil Frama leather cover is the way to go. High quality and best of all-no hooks. All, while holding Kindle in place. At $99 it is $20 more than Amazon cover, but worth it.

I just saw that you wrote this AFTER seeing instructions on how to attach and remove a hinged cover.

If this is the cover, I don't know what else to say, re how to remove it, as I have pictures that show how (the angle of the lower hook is important).

But if your Kindle is damaged by the opening of the back of the cover, call Kindle support as I mentioned...

2012-01-29T13:35:34.291-08:00

Bloody Annoyed,
You didn't say what kind of cover you have.

First, if a cover that's designed by Amazon (as the ones with slot inputs are) causes damage to the Kindle, they will replace the Kindle, but you have to call them -- if in the US, call Kindle support (preferably on weekdays but 24/7 nevertheless), at 866-321-8851.

I don't know what 'POS' stands for (outside of point-of-sale), but if your cover is one that has the hooks in it (and I don't know if those were even made for the DX -- I use a simple sleeve), see Using the Hinged Cover.

The disintegrating USB leads in that power cable have definitely been a problem - call them about that too. Let me know, if you can, what happens with all this.

Have to say the Kindle DX and it's cover and the biggest pile of shit when it comes to design.

I simply cannot remove the cover. The reason I want to remove it is because the POS is damaging my kindle (splitting the front from the back covers). It's really appaulling design.

Matched only in quality by the disintegrating USB leads.

The 4th and 5th photos show you how to remove the Kindle from the bottom connector.

It mentions that the the clip curves down to hold the Kindle and that you should match the angle when removing and fastening.

Hope that helps...

Help! I got a Kindle for my birthday, I clasped the hooks for the cover but I can't seem to release my kindle from the bottom hook, does anyone know how to do that?

Anonymous,
You could write M-Edge, see an interview with the CEO of M-Edge Covers (Patrick). A very approachable guy, he might be reachable at their contact page.

His hinged covers are described as Amazon Kindle *compatible* so I suspect you can't just get the Amazon ones. Maybe he'd have some ideas for you.

2010-04-18T11:59:21.961-07:00

Does anyone know where you can purchase the hinges for the Kindle? I have a line of kindle covers coming out and I am trying to see if they are proprietary or if they are readily available.

Thanks!

Sean,
I'm not sure it was leather. It seems it's a combo of leather and a layer of neoprene as well.

Mine was unbearable for a few days but I left it by a window where it was aired by good and it's been fine since then.

I'll probably do an entry about it yesterday due to the email advisory received in the email today (after a settlement). It's a great cover though. No problems with mine.

The "Strong, Unpleasant odor" is the nice smell of genuine leather. :) While some people dislike it i don't mind it, and the smell of my case also went away in a couple weeks... :\

Thank you so much for posting this. I'd been trying to work out how to remove my Kindle from its case and almost broke it in the process!
