use a some plyers and you have to unscrew them. Or you can se4e if you have a tool that will fit and you just unscrew them.

The same thickness as the stand offs. I have a cludge i use....

The top half of the tiny bulb sockets on christmas lites are about the right diameter. So I cut them off an old dead string. Slice them to the right height, run a screw into the bottom through the case and then run a screw through the MB into the top. Elcheapo insulated standoffs!

(Yes, I need to get a life, but my wife won't let me.)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
