    It does help. Right then:

    How do you feel about gluing two small steel (must be ferrous metal) washers underneath the saddle?

    What about carefully drilling two corresponding, magnet shaped, cylindrical holes in the back of the beast? Embed magnets** in shallow holes.

    Call that ^ idea One.
    ________________

    It looks like there is a tiny amount of clearance under some portions of the saddle. Try ordering some **neodymium magnets that are 1mm thick by 3mm diameter or maybe 4mm. Find out if there is room under there for magnet to magnet connection.

    SuperGlue two under the saddle; two to the back of the critter.

    Call that ^ idea Two.

    Test by dry fitting. From what I can see in the pix it looks like there’s two spots on each side where a tiny washer might fit.

    Flat against the inside of the saddle, one each side is what I would go for. They’d end up angled compared to the table surface.
