Lo Profile SD Card Adapter Breaks Board

by stephanc2009 on Tue Feb 26, 2013 5:18 am

Installing the Lo Profile Adapter (966) in the Model B Raspberry Pi (998) and enclosing them in the machined aluminum case (1036) snaps the side rail of the SD Card Holder soldered to the R/Pi when the case screws are tightened. There is not quite enough clearance, at least on the parts I used. You may start getting these back unless the case manufacturer machines a bit of an inlet below the SD Card Holder.

Like many others, I am now working on a solution to a broken SD Card Holder on the R/Pi.

Thanks for the heads-up. Can you post a photo of the problem?

Hi, from the product page for the low profile adapter:

" Depending on the case from various manufacturers, the microSD card adapter may not easily slide in and out or may need modifications to the PCB or actual case. The microSD card adapter is meant for a stand alone board or with use on our Pi Dish or VESA mount."

Very few cases work with a low profile adapter, please use care!
