    I borrowed a coworker's GretagMacBeth Eye-One Pro device over the
    weekend to calibrate my monitor. Unfortunately, I broke the black
    piece that goes over the sensor. I don't know what is called but
    here are its pictures when properly on device and off device.

    I found GretaMacbeth's phone number but have to wait until Monday and
    meanwhile I will be stressed out and unable to sleep if I don't know
    if that part is available. I appreciate if you had any experience in
    this matter let me know as soon as possible;

    1- What is that piece called?

    2- If that piece only can be bought from the GretagMacbeth?

    3- What is approximate price of that piece?

    Best regards,

  2. Looks like you'll get all those answers on Monday morning.

    Worst case you buy him a new Eye-One Pro.

    If the break is a clean one and the parts fit together tightly, a few
    dots of "Krazy Glue" or similar (cyanoacrylate adhesive) will make the
    part look and function like new. Note: Apply the Krazy Glue to only one
    side of the break. Hold the parts tightly together for about 20-30 seconds.
    Voila.....Done.
