Introduction

You can protect your Raspberry Pi with a case designed to house the Raspberry Pi B+, Raspberry Pi 2, Raspberry Pi 3, Raspberry Pi 3B+ and HAT PCBs.

In this guide, you will learn how to insert a microSD card, attach heat sinks and put your Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ into its case. This is for the Black/Transparent Raspberry Pi case.

After completing this guide, your Raspberry Pi will be much more safer from damage.
    • Before placing the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ into its case, we will put the heat sinks on it first. Turn the heat sinks over to the back

    • Peel off the back of the heat sinks to reveal the adhesive tape 

    • Carefully place the heatsinks with the adhesive sticky sides on the Raspberry Pi as shown. 

    • Please ensure that the heatsinks are placed only on these two points as shown by the arrows.

    • You need to be precise with the placement of the smaller heatsink otherwise it will be hard to clip the case all the way on.

    • There are three parts to the case, starting with the clear top piece.

    • A middle piece

    • A bottom piece

    • To assemble the case, first place the Raspberry Pi face up on the bottom piece. 

    • Slide the Raspberry Pi under the two connection points as shown in the third picture.

    • It should fit so that the Raspberry Pi does not fall off from the case if you turned it sideways.

    • Place the middle piece atop the Raspberry Pi. 

    • There are three connection points, where it connects with the bottom piece. Once fully pushed in, they should snap together.

    • You should be able to access the microUSB port for power, HDMI port, and audio port from the case as shown.

    • Finally, place the clear acrylic piece on top. 

    • There are two connection points at the front, and two at the back. These will connect it to the middle piece.

    • Now we will place the microSD card into the Raspberry Pi. Turn the Raspberry Pi over and you will see the microSD card slot.

    • Gently slide the microSD card into the slot, making sure that the writing on the SD card is face down towards the bottom of the Raspberry Pi

    • Push the microSD card in 

    • For the Raspberry Pi 3 and 3B+, the microSD card does not 'click' in. Simply slide it into the slot.
