Replacement Scotch Mini Tabs for BulletTrain eXpress + How to Use Them


Replacement Scotch Mini Tabs

for BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform

Some customers have written in asking how to get replacement Mini Tabs for their BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform? This article details how they work and how to easily order replacements.

As you see in the photo above each BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform comes standard with 4 Scotch Restickable Mini Tabs [.5 inches square], each of which is located in the round recesses located in the top corners of where the Apple Magic Keyboard and Trackpad sit. 


In order to use these you need to remove the clear plastic covers with white letters on them in order to expose the stickiness.

The purpose of these Restickable tabs is to allow the user to place the Apple Magic Trackpad and then the Apple Magic Keyboard in place, and hold them so if you were to turn the BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform they would NOT fall out. 

We don't currently offer replacement tabs, but you can easily purchase these Scotch Restickable Mini Tabs on Amazon using our affiliate link, and they are relatively inexpensive at around $5.50. 

The Scotch Restickable Mini Tabs are great for many purposes. If you purchase them in the package seen above you get 72 of them, which means you will have a lifetime supply, as they last a really long time. Also, there are many other great uses for them you will likely discover.

The beauty of these tabs is that they are strong enough to hold your Apple Keyboard and trackpad in place, but easy to remove. 


It's really easy to remove your Apple Keyboard and trackpad from BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform after they have been attached to the restickable tabs.

Simply place your eXpress upside down on a soft flat surface like on a bathroom towel, and place your thumbs over the oval holes and press the keyboard out first, and then the trackpad.

If you need to replace older Scotch Restickable Mini Tabs it's really easy. All you do is remove the old Mini Tab. If it seems like it's stuck really well to your eXpress just use your fingers to apply rolling pressure and they will come off pretty easily.


Our current 3rd generation BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform is compatible with the older style rechargeable Magic Keyboard and Trackpad as well as with the latest generation models which feature a Touch ID button on the keyboard. 

The latest generation Touch ID Keyboard (pictured below) is slightly narrower than the older version, and if you were to place it in the BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform without using the Scotch Restickable Tabs, it would slide around and if you were to turn the eXpress upside down, would fall out. By using the Scotch Restickable tabs, it will perfectly hold the Magic Keyboard with Touch ID perfectly in place so it does not move at all.
