Assembly Instruction for Raspberry Pi Cover with Breadboard Area


This blog is the assembly instruction for the Raspberry Pi cover with breadboard area.

First check all the parts are present. Note the white spacer has a slot cut out for the board.


Gently peel off the protective backing film on both sheet.


Insert 3 screws and white spacers loosely as shown. Do not tighten them up at this stage. Make sure the cut slot on the white spacer is at the bottom.


Align cut slot on the white space with the edge of the board.


Gently slide the Raspberry into place.


Attach the 4th screw and white spacer.


Attach top cover and 4 screws.


Turn the board over and attach 4 bumper feet. Check the PCB is lined up correctly. Tighten up all screws.

    Are these M4 bolts and hex spacer nuts? I need to raise the whole thing about 10mm for my intended use.
    I also found I had to shave a little off of the pillar that is alongside the SD card. Modifying the pillar to allow the SD card to slide in easily means being carefull not to tighten up untill you are happy, which this guide does point out :-)

      Good tip, thanks!

    They are M4 bolts, the spacer is made of nylon and they are round not hex shape.

    I received my set today… Looks amazing and is great quality! Cannot wait to get home and start mucking around with it :-)

    Ordered one a few weeks ago and it was delivered in a few days. Really easy to assemble, my 12 year old daughter had no troubles. Now she keeps asking if we can do some more on the Raspberry Pi as the breadboard area make it so easy to build circuits.

    Have you guys considered rerunning the Tux case for the raspberry pi? I’d be very interested in such an item.

    The Tux case is not manufactured by us. So it is not possible.

    With a little modification this would be excellent for a RPi with a PiFace on top.

    I just received my Raspberry Pi Cover with Breadboard Area from SK Pang in Essex. Good shipping time to the US and I’m pleased with the overall quality/design of the product. I cant wait to start prototyping with my RPi’s programable GPIO. It should be a good companion to my university’s digital electronics course this quarter.
