SparkFun will be closing on Monday for Memorial Day (5/28). Orders placed after 2pm MT on Friday (5/25) will process and ship out on Tuesday (5/29).
The Raspberry Pi is everybody’s favorite little computer, the last thing that you’d want is for something bad to happen to it. Why not protect it with one of these snazzy plastic enclosures? These cases protect the Raspberry Pi 3, the RPi 2, and Model B+ from things like rogue wires that might short it out while still allowing full access to the board! Simply snap the RPi into the bottom half of the enclosure, then snap the two sides together.
As you may have noticed, these enclosures are actually transparent. The enclosures are perfect for letting you see your Raspberry Pi and make any needed adjustments easily.
The enclosure provides slots to access the GPIO peripheral header, USB ports, Ethernet, SD card, HMDI, 3.5mm jack, and CSI connectors as well as feet and vents to ensure the board gets proper cooling and plus-shaped wall mounting slots. All of the status LEDs on the Pi are visible slots in the design. This is a really slick case and once you’ve gotten your hands on a Raspberry Pi B+, you’ll want to snag one of these to put it in!
Whether it's for assembling a kit, hacking an enclosure, or creating your own parts; the DIY skill is all about knowing how to use tools and the techniques associated with them.
Skill Level: Noob - Basic assembly is required. You may need to provide your own basic tools like a screwdriver, hammer or scissors. Power tools or custom parts are not required. Instructions will be included and easy to follow. Sewing may be required, but only with included patterns.

Very good access to the GPIO pins. It’s inexpensive which I love and it quickly opens with a tiny screw driver. What’s not to like!!!
Bought 3. Replaced some that didn’t have a slot for the jumpers to the pins. Snapped together easily and a great fit.
The clear case fits perfectly, yet it has openings for easy access to all the connectors, headers, etc. I feel like the Pi is protected when in this case and not being manhandled all the time.
This is awaiting some additions of ADC and DAC PCB’s from Adafruit. I am now involved in setting up a circuit simulator to use with the Analog System Lab Kit Pro by MikroElektronika/Texas Instruments. I have been two years educating my self on your microcontrolers and RPi. Now I am going to drop down to analog IC’s and circuit theory. Good retirement projects for an old Aerospace Engineer and CIO.
