White box plastic enclosure
#1
Today I received the Pine 64 enclosure, a white plastic box.
However, it was closed up. The lid is held by six hooks to the case
on the inside and you cannot lift the lid from the case,
so it is not posiible to put the Pine 64 board inside.

can somebody help?

hi, reach inside and unsnap the tabs; pull the two halves apart.

... before snapping it back together with the pine inside, use a dremel tool and carefully drill a small paper clip sized hole in the enclosure where each tab will be... then to reopen the enclosure, press an unfolderd paper clip into the hole to release each tab. 

Is this ideal?  Of course not.  The enclosure has several very irritating design flaws that we are having to live with... this is just one of them.  If you have further questions, please visit us on irc chat and we'll help you.

Never mind getting the lid off, what about getting the lid on with the z-wave module attached, the antenna of which protrudes above the top edge of the case? Any ideas - drill more holes?
