I'm losing my mind. I assembled it, no matter what I do, the nuts just pop off when I'm trying to secure it all together. I've tried using the little tool, I tried iw without the gpio ribbon cable - nothing works. What am I doing wrong?!
The bolts are too short. I'll post a picture in a bit. I'm visiting with my folks. I'll be home around 10:30pm EST. Sorry. I should've been more specific. The bolts barely stick thru the enclosure and the nuts won't thread on. There's nothing for them to grip to.
I just assembled PiBow tonight. It's a bit finicky, but mine fit. You definitely can't have any space between the layers. My screws aren't borderline; they go all the way through the nuts and come out slightly on the other side. I cursed mine for a bit before realizing I had the blue layer backward. (that makes the USB connector and the SD card both fit really badly.)
Hi - thanks for your patience. We had the pibow people take a look at your pictures, and they think that some of the plates you have came out a little too thick. It's not a common problem - they've only seen it a handful of times.
