    Is your case custom or embossed? If not, try contacting Portenzo and see if they'll allow you to exchange your case for one with the magnets.

    You know, I might just do that. I think they might not tell me, etc, trade secret, etc. But I'll try!

    Contact them and see what they say. They seem like a very good company. I would be interested in what you find out.




    Are you referring to the video I posted? That's not me.




    Mine is just going to be a BookCase. Judging by their production schedule, I'll probably receive it about the week of Thanksgiving. I hope to get it before Thanksgiving, then I can show it off at my parent's house.


    ... and thank you for the explanation on the embossing.
    Finally got around emailing portenzo in regards to replacing wood frame only, 39.95 includes new elastic. I'm sure shipping not included. I'm hoping the new Nexus 7 has the same dimensions so I will just need the wood frame instead of buying a new case.

    Hey thanks, but I'm looking to see where the magnets are that keep the case shut. Did you get the magnagrip?

    That's the wake / sleep magnet. The question is about the magnets that secure the case closed.

    fyi, the rubber grips in the corners holding my nexus in the case got super loose, it wouldn't hold the tablet in. anything like that happen with you guys? I sent it back to portenzo and they have fixed it, sending it back to me. just fyi.
