The Adafruit Proto Cape Kit fits with lid fully closed. The lid will require modification to accommodate any additional components on top of the Proto Cape.

I used the mounting hardware from the Adafruit Proto Plate kit. If you would like to purchase the mounting hardware separately, the dimensions are as follows:

 

      4 x 4-40 1/2" Metal or Nylon Polyamide Screws

      4 x 4-40 Metal or Nylon Polyamide Hexnuts

      4 x 3/16" Nylon Polyamide Standoffs * This height will work if the Micro USB is used for power. If you desire to use the 5V power jack, a shorter standoff must be used.
