Question about Case

by inevu on Wed Jun 13, 2012 8:15 am

Hey! While I was assembling one of the little plastic hooks (not the "dragon claws", the ones on the opposite end) broke off. I don't know how it happened because I was extra careful and watched the video like a million times before attempting it. Also the top plate of my case was a little scratched. My question is if you guys could sell separate parts of the Raspberry Pi case in case things like this happen? Thank you very much!

I had the same problem, and was also very careful. I sent an email to support@adafruit.com. Responded right away. Thanks!

Others that are assembling the case: take great care with the non-dragon-claw tabs.

Unfortunately I did the same thing, I thought the tabs were aligned correctly and the tip of the hook sheered off on two of the non dragonclaw feet.. Grrrh Im curious is there a reason why you didnt want all the tabs to be of the "claw" type. Its a pretty case.. tolerances are very tight. Though I really didnt think i was putting much force on it..
