    If you are not careful you'll have broken glass, or a bent scanner component by bowing in the glass. This is my told-you-so.
    And if you tell me you've never broken a piece of copier glass, I'll bet every member here will confirm replacing copier glass for exactly that reason.

    I've not broken any platen glass other than to have dropped a few, but I have broken the slit glass on a few Ricoh by lean to much on the left top cover near the glass.

    I never have broken the platen glass either, had to replace them from a heavy set female making copies of her ' cooter '.
    She spent two hours in ER getting the shattered glass removed.

    id just remove the 2 plates on the hinges and allow the ADF to open full 90 degrees. surely it will stay in that position even with dodgy spring

    I never broke a copier glass,i am not pushing down the adf when i copy from bookbinded documents.I just enlarge or stick a piece of paper if it is smaller than the paper i am using.
    But good to know that the glass could bent if such a small force is applied.

    Probably a good budget solution but not suitable/safe in a book store if the customers are allowed to operate the MFPs.
