Hi all.

while repairing my laptop I broke the metal bracket for the DC Jack.

-what is the purpose of this piece? Grounding?
-Can I use the laptop without it?
-where can I buy a replacement?

see Images for reference. I tried, amazon, ebay. I found the dc jack but no metal cap included.. :(

But still I would like to know if, the brackets acts like a Grounding?

Thanks in advance.
