Replacing cap locks keyboard key

HP Recommended
HP Notebook - 15 -bs010ds

Can someone tell me or link how to replace the cap locks key? I took it off for cleaning a stray crumb that fell in there and I can’t for the life of me figure out how to get it back on. It has a metal bar which is throwing me off. Idk how to do this please help 🙂

@TMarie1 

These kinds of keys are very difficult to replace. 

 

There are usually very small clips on the keyboard base that the bar fits into and slots on the key that hold the end of the bar -- assuming it is U-shape.  You have to insert the bar into the slots in the key and then press the key into the keyboard mount, using tweezers to hold the bar, while at the same time, pressing the bar into the clips on the keyboard base.  There is no simple way to do this.

 

You should not be removing keys on laptop keyboards because in most cases, you can't remount them.
