I found using the end up a needle nose pliers the easiest way to assemble the final 4 nuts. Just press firmly down on the handles with one hand and rotate it. I have rubber feet on both sides but you may have to hold the case to stop it from sliding around.

I saw another video that suggests assembling the two screws and shown and then assembling the base pieces together using the two short screws and nuts NEXT. It is a LOT better method. It hold them together and does not interfere with putting on the corner pieces which now go on A LOT easier. I would also assemble one screw to each, not fully tight but close, before adding the screen. The avoids you having to fight gravity since they are already in place and you can assemble it with screen upward and make any adjustments with ease.

I would like to see a "tall" version too so I could either mount a fan internally or use the Z-Wave or similar module, etc.
Link the video.
+1 me if I have helped you in any way. Thank you.

    I ordered one of these and see that with some small modifications, it can be turned into a very sleek, standing case.

I'm dropping the corner brackets, which are only needed to protect the screen if the unit is used as a playbox. Mine will be standing permanently in my HiFi shelves in picture-frame posture.

That brings me to my question or request.

If anyone knows of a source of some flat aluminium brackets, about 3mm thick, 1-2cm wide and bent at a 65°/115° angle, that could be cut to length and polished, I'd be happy to know about them. I don't care what they're originally intended for.  One end will be bolted to sides of the back of the C4 enclosure, while the other will sit on the shelf, supporting the unit at a nice, 65°(ish) angle.

Of course I can manufacture them myself if necessary, but bending two, exactly matched angles from flat aluminium may be difficult.
