VESA-Pi Case Kit Contents
- 2 x VESA Perpex Sheets
- 1 x Dust Guard Perspex Sheet
- 4 x M4 10mm Pillars
- 4 x M4 30mm Pillars
- 4 x M4 8mm Screws
- 2 x M2.5 5mm Screws
- 2 x M2.5 Nuts
- 2 x M2.5 8mm Stand Off's
- 2 x M2.5 Plastic Washers
Each perspex sheet has a protective white plastic layer situated on top. Grab the sheets and remove these protective layers.
Grab the 2 x M2.5 8mm Stand Off's and the 2 x M2.5 Nuts and affix the Stand Off's to the Perspex sheets as shown in the picture below - be careful with the orientation or you'll end up with your Raspberry Pi's facing in the wrong direction. The VESA-Pi protects the SD card, so bear this in mind with orientation.
Use the 2 x M2.5 5mm Screws and the 2 x M2.5 Plastic Washers to fix your Raspberry Pi's to the affixed stand off's using the Raspberry Pi Mounting Points.
Use the 4 x M4 10mm Pillars (the short ones!) and fix them to the VESA Mounts on your TV – The VESA-Pi is both 75mm and 100mm VESA compatible. The construction for both types is the same, so simply user either the ‘inner’ or 'outer' holes depending on which type you have. We have a 75mm monitor here, so we’ll use the inner holes in following steps.
Place the layer with your attached Raspberry Pi on top of the M4 10mm Pillars. Then use the M4 30mm Pillars to screw it down. If you’re using the 75mm option simply omit the top two pillars at this point and insert the dust guard. If you’re using the 100mm option, use all pillars on the outer holes and then insert the dust guard into the two rectangular holes.
Stack the final perspex layer on top, and use the remaining 4 x M4 Screws to fix the final layer and secure the dust guard in place!
That's it! Your Pi is now safely and smartly attached to the rear of your TV!
