Raspberry Pi Camera Mount bolts/nuts


#1

Hi,
The mount was supplied with black metal bolts and nuts, not the white nylon(?) ones shown. The nuts are touching camera board components…OK if nylon but metal nuts could cause shorting?

Can you please supply replacement nylon hardware?

Cheers,
Kelvin

Hey Kelvin,

The holes are not electrically connected, and the nuts plated, so I’d not be terribly worried about any problems.

The closest one seems to be around C1, so leave that off if you’re not happy having it there. The camera will still be really stable without it :-)

Mine has also come with metal screw/nuts. Whether or not there is a connection to or through the hole, I am extremely wary of using metal screws and nuts so close to components. This just does not look right.
