    As I said, mine came without.

    I defer.. But if no one else chimes in.. You might put a couple of nuts on a stud and pull it with a claw hammer.

    read post #10.

    I checked out AFL's site and it didn't have anything on how to remove them.

    you could cut those down and put a piece of plexi and use stand offs. Other wise not sure how else you could do it.

    The TA200's come in two flavors - - with and without studs...

    It is easy to cut off the bosses ("studs" as they've been called in this thread): it is jobs like this that a Higher Power invented the rotary cutting tool (aka Dremel).

    It might be harder if you don't have a Dremel.

    HTH.

    PS: Not to correct Budude, but I think they actually come in three flavors: bosses, no bosses (which are raised plastic where you can insert screws) and plain vanilla (nothing). FWIW, I think Chris (Radiant-Holidays) sells them without bosses, while Todd (DIYLEDExpress) sells them with.

    Welcome to DIYC! I love the TA-200 enclosures, they are very versatile and easy to work with.

    Most TA-200's are ordered without the studs. And you just use some sheetmetal screws to mount the PCB onto the plastic bosses in the enclosure. In your case it came with metal studs installed into the plastic bosses. I would just grab them with a pair of pliers and back them out. Or as noted above, you could put two jamnuts tightened against each other so you can grab ahold of the stud to back it out with a box-end wrench, socket wrench or a metric crescent wrench [joking about the metric version! ]

    I've never had to remove the studs so I don't know if they are just screwed in, molded in or if they are pressed in. If they are pressed in you will probably just have to pull them out to get them out of the way. If molded in you will probably have to cut them off as dmc noted, but that seems to be the toughest way.

    Anyhoo, all the TA-200's I got from Chris at Radiant-holidays have the bosses without any studs installed. I cut off the two upper bosses (just using the wirecutters I use for clipping long component leads when soldering) and used sheet metal screws in the lower two.

    This is a DCSSR (for DC rather than the AC you are controlling with the SSRNeon) but you get the picture (pun intended ). But there are better pics up the thread above too.

    Hard to go wrong. The plastic is malleable and won't crack easily so you can be pretty rough with the case getting the studs out of your way without breaking the enclosure. Even if you wind up having to cut out the bosses you can just drill two holes in the back of the enclosure and put in long #6 screws with a dab of silicone on each hole and you're in business. I do this a lot to suspend PCB's in enclosures when the bosses don't line up where I want them.

    It would be great to see some pics of how you work this out. Hope this helps!

    Heat the studs up with a heat gun and pull them straight out. A high powered hair dryer may also do it.

    Have you tried this before tjetzer? I want to make sure this will work, as I only bought as many TA-200's as I needed, and won't have much time to buy more if some get broken.

    A big thank you to all of you who replied. I really appreciate it!

    Like they've already said just use a Drexel and a cutting wheel. If you don't have one, get one. You'll need it again some day. Unless it's a big job and then it's a grinder with a cutting wheel. :-) you can just cut the stud or once it's out cut out the plastic standoff too if you want. Might leave it in though for stability.

    BTW using a cutting wheel will make sparks if you're cutting metal. Dont worry it wont burn you like you might think. Just Use some good eye protection.

    Do you have a socket wrench set? Just put the smallest socket that fits over the bolt and around the plastic boss. Put a nut on the bolt and turn it until the stud is pulled out. This should be pretty easy.
