Neo Trinkey USB Connection

by j_tinker on Wed May 12, 2021 9:45 am

Like these little things, but one issue is they sit very loose & flexy in the USB port. Does anyone have mod suggestions to firm up the hold in a USB port?

you could try layering something underneath like a thick tape?
we'll try ordering PCBs in 2.4mm going forward as well (2.0 is not custom so we started with that, 2.4mm is custom)

Thanks, I'll give it a shot. Thanks for the heads up about PCB thickness.

Thanks here as well. The New Product videos for the Trinkey's really make me nervous, because I have had USB ports break from very loose connectors. A secure fit is really important.
