I have this keyboard.

The space bar is stiff, I popped it out to clean my keyboard and I cant figger out how to put it back in properly. The space bar has a metal bracket and the the keyboard has 2 slot like things, I slid the metal bracket into the slots and its still sticking. I dont know what else to do.

When all else fails, lubricate.

I have the same keyboard at work. I just popped the spacebar off mine to see if I could help (working really hard on a Friday afternoon biggrin.gif)...

It's really simply to re-attach. Slide the metal bracket into the plastic clips as shown below (the metal bracket enters the plastic clips at the back then slides forward) then flip the spacebar into it's normal position and push down until it snaps into place.

Wow. Those Dell spacebar stabilizers wires are at least twice the diameter of the flimsy BlackWidow and Xarmors.
