I’m using a HAT (Capacitive Touch), I’ve soldered the header to the HAT but the connection seems to only be strong when I press down / attach the HAT using standoffs. I’ve been struggling to find standoffs that work well - the latest I bought work without the Pibow case on - but when I have my case on, the green layer means that the standoffs are too high and the headers aren’t contacting the GPIO.
Question is do the standoff’s on this site work with a Pibow case? https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/brass-m2-5-standoffs-for-pi-hats-black-plated-pack-of-2
I guess if not, my best option would be to carefully cut away the plastic around the holes in the Pibow level (I think I can do this for three of them - the fourth runs the risk of some of the case snapping off.
How have others done it? Secondary question - should my touch HAT be so… ‘touchy’ about working? Videos see they are just placed on the GPIO but when I do that the light is faint and the i2c only sometimes shows that it is properly connected.
Cheers for any advice in advance…
