The problem: the sd card holder stopped working

When your Raspberry Pi 2 is does not hold the integrated sd-card anymore, than your one of many people who face the same problem.

I have found an easy way to repair the sd card holder without fire and iron and explosions:

You can use an elastci strap and you will only loose 2 of your 4 USB-slots with this method.

 

A small and strong elastic strap can hold the sd cartd in the sd card slot and fixes the problem easily and smooth.
