I plan on doing that this week. I was waiting until I got a velcro Oberon so that we could position the velcro properly. I just got my new cover last week.corkyb said:Did anyone ever take their Oberon cover with corners and have a leather shop or a handy person change it to Velcro? If so, how did it work out?
:Xina said:I have an oberon velcro because I prefer the floating look, but the velcro was really bugging me because of the thickness it added to my k2. The velcro made it annoying when I changed over to amazon cover (when I needed a lighter weight for the day) & also made prospects of trying noreve or other covers a problem.
So, a few days ago I ripped the leather outer covering off of my amazon cover & then cut the inner portion in half. I then removed the velcro from my kindle AND my oberon cover (pulled out the stitches) & then inserted the inner half of amazon cover with hinge into the oberon, cut back a little of that black leather pocket inside the oberon (so that the amazon hinge has enough room to function) & now I have the PERFECT oberon cover for me! No corners, no velcro, just hinges & with only about one ounce additional weight (from the half of the inner amazon cover with hinge). I am sooo happy, I can finally really enjoy my oberon cover
