How can I make the hinge for the Chromebook tighter?

The Chromebook's hinge is very loose and the screen keeps falling whenever set to an angle greater than around 100 degrees relative to the keyboard surface. Is there any way I can tighten the hinge to prevent this from happening?

Start with tightening the lower chassis screws (and the screws on the lower hinge inside) to see if the issue goes away; that's the lesser invasive area where it often has issues. That said, it can also be the screws inside the LCD assembly under the bezel. While it can be fixed the same way, you need to be careful when pulling the bezel and pull slowly since a lot of these newer laptops tape the screen to the bezel as well as use clips. You can damage the lightproof tape if you rush it.

In most cases, I’ve noticed the problem is the lower chassis screws; not the LCD hinge screws INSIDE the display. Refer to this guide to get to the screws for the hinges. However, if you continue to have issues then it usually is within the LCD assembly. You will need to work slowly if this is needed. Refer to this guide if the invasive option is needed.

If neither of these fixes helps, the hinges are worn out or the plastic broke somewhere. Chromebooks are inherently cheaply built, so it happens more than you think. The problem is shared on "enterprise" or "education" versions, with the only difference being a bundled management license.

@nick that seems to be a battery replacement guide.

It's the closest thing I can find that exposes the bottom hinges without getting too invasive.

Are you tech-savvy enough to open it? Sounds like the screws may need tightened, either on the LCD's side or on the mobo side.

You have to tighten bolts on the hinges.

Remove the back cover first and unscrew the screen then remove the hinges.
