IMG_4679This new case features our hardware free delrin clip design, making it cheaper and easier to assemble.

Step 1: Remove the masking material

All of our acrylic has a paper mask to protect the surface from blemishes.

To remove this mask, simply start at a corner of the part and use your fingernail or some similar implement to peel back the mask.

Be sure to remove the masking from both sides of the part.

Notice the clip in the upper right.

The eyelets on this clip are slightly inset. Be sure that this clip gets snapped in to the slots closest to the edge.

Also, make sure that the integrated square clip is on the side with the button holes.

Look at the buttons

Notice that one side is longer than the other. You need to be sure that the long side is pointing up when the buttons are placed into the button holes as shown below.

Now take the button rail and slide it over the buttons and snap it into place.
