pHAT and compatibility with Kobz Case

#1

Hello,

I have a RPi2 with a case liike this one:

The question is, will this HAT fit on top of that case? There is space for accessing the GPIO pins but I can’t e sure.

Many thanks

Hi @gtj I got a RPi2 too. I can mount the pHat onto it with this case installed, but if the case is not installed properly, you need to cut a bit of the plastic of the socket.

hello, i’m thinking you could try an extender for the pins, like this,

which would give higher pins.
