The Raspberry Pi is THE new favorite of development platforms, so the last thing that you’d want is for something bad to happen to it. Why not protect it with one of these snazzy clear plastic enclosures? These translucent cases protect the Raspberry Pi 3, RPi2, and Model B+ from things like rogue wires that might short it out while still allowing full access to the board as well as proper airflow to keep your new toy cool! Simply snap the RPi into the bottom half of the enclosure, then snap the two sides together.
The enclosure provides slots to access the GPIO header, USB ports, Ethernet, microSD card, HMDI, 3.5mm jack, and CSI connectors as well as rubber feet and vents to ensure the board gets proper cooling and Pi Camera module mounting holes. All of the status LEDs on the Pi are visible through the case thanks to tunnel recesses embedded in the design and the two piece case can be taken apart without unplugging any cables. This is a really slick case and once you’ve gotten your hands on a Raspberry Pi, you’ll want to snag one of these to put it in!
Note: This case does NOT include a Raspberry Pi.

Took me a few minutes to figure out why two small screws were included. Put the camera module inside the case, with the lens coming out the large open hole in the top. The two screws attach the camera board to the posts on the inside of the upper case. The camera ribbon will tuck nicely inside of the case.
This was a perfect fit for a Model B+. Everything clicked into place in about 60 seconds.
The pi fits well in the case and all i/o is accessible. I like that there is a slot for the a ribbon cable connected to the gpio pin header
The enclosure is the perfect size and it's clear, so cool to look at. I would have appreciated something easier to open back up. Pay attention as your putting your pi into it. There's only one way it seats correctly. I figured that out relatively easy. It's a bit less robust then I thought it could be. But over all I really appreciate it. All my output ribbons fit just fine. The usb,ether net, and other parts are readily accessible.
