other than glue i don't know,you may need to get new pieces as the lock gets damaged the more times you lock and unlock it

whenever I install laminate I always put a small dab of wood glue, like Lepage or something) on the ends. Not a lot but just a dab. Never had a seam break yet. But, if it has already split you have two options...

1) put some running shoes on and kick one plank toward the other, or

2) remove a piece of baseboard or quarter round (enough to see the gap at the end) and use this tool to hammer it into place. $12 at HD Place the right side between the wall and the plank course, then hit the left side with a hammer..tadaaaa.
