Hammer butt leather

Do you hear a pronounced scratching when you play your keys?

Your butts may be losing their leather.

Looking at these two images you will likely see the problem.  It is relatively simple to resolve the loose leather, but be careful.  Don't use so much glue that it soaks into the leather causing another "noise" problem once the glue had dried.

I like to use a 60 second curing super glue.
Drop of Glue Applied
60-90 Second Cure "Gorilla" brand

After applying the glue, press firmly and hold in place until the glue sets.  Alternately you can hold tight with a clamp, rubber band, etc.

 Re-install part and your jacks won't be dragging along your butt leather improperly anymore!
