Hello Allen,

This is just amazing. You're working with the eMates in your classroom,
just as it was intended nearly a decade ago?

I'm quite impressed.

The anti-opening device seems efficient, but once the hinges are
repaired, is there any need to prevent the eMate from opening fully?

I bookmarked your amazing site, thanks for the great job.

Best regards from France,
