Steel Case Assembly GPIO pin alignment

Hello, n00b here

I was assembling my Pi4 and DAC+ADC pro and have a suggestion if you have difficulty lining up the GPIO pins. Maybe I was being overly cautious, but I didn't want to squeeze too hard if the pins were not aligned. First, use the countersunk screws for securing the HAT to the case. I got half-way through before realizing there were different screws! :/ Now the big tip

  • Loosen the screws securing the HAT to the case enough for it to move a bit. As the GPIO pins get close, move the HAT around until there is an easy fit, then squeeze it together.

I am enjoying the setup, playing Spotify through my home stereo, and looking forward to exploring Snapcast and more!
