Xhat does not sit firmly

#1

Hi all. Was wondering how you all got the xhat to sit firmly on your pi. Mine is always shaky at best and all attempts I make to tighten bolts are futile as they rotate. As the xhat is not firm my controls are problematic all the time.

I don’t have an X Hat but I use stand offs with most of my pHats and Hats
These


or these

Thanks for that. I’m using the stand off’s that came with the kit, they look similar to the ones u pointed out. They still give me problems.

You may have to hold the stand off with pliers while you tighten the screws or nuts.

Cheers thanks for your help I fixed it. I removed stand offs and squeezed the xhat down, then just tightened Raspberry Pi to xhat with some nuts.
