Title:

Is there a home remedy to fix 3 broken ram slot holders?

Text:

I had bought my brother (who is 18) some new ram for his birthday since he had been asking for 16 GB. Well I had told him not to replace the RAM and well, he did and failed spectacularly!! (How can an 18 year old fail to install ram but yet me being a 16 year old not??) He managed to not only break one of the tabs holding the ram but 3!!!!!!
 
He broke the right side top slot and both of the bottom tabs, right now I created a rig where we used some old credit cards and super glued them together and created a temporary holder.
 
My question is, is there anywhere to create another type of rig where I can use both slots or is my brother forever stuck running single channel memory unless we buy a new logic board?
 
I do not have the funds (of course) to buy a new logic board for him or to get someone who can salder and desalder. Any home remedies would be a blessing, thank you!

Sorry for the latest response, I’ve been drowning in homework for the past few days.
 
here are the photos and the current rig we set up.
 
Thank you again!
